Screaming for Ice cream


Hello all you beautiful people!
Hope you are all doing well, and I hope that spring has reached you where ever you are. I wish I could say that spring has reached me here in northern Sweden, but yesterday we had a snow storm, and it seems like spring will never come.

I wanted to write a post about this really easy-to-make ice cream, and I thought that the end of April would be a good time to share the recipe because the weather has warmed up then, but no Sir!

Petulantly I will share this post anyway, cold weather be damned!



So about this ice cream, it is a recipe that I saw on Manuela Kjeilen's (of Passion For Baking) tv show "Baka med Manuela" that aired here in Sweden. It's really easy, and doesn't require an ice cream making machine (which I don't have), so you can just about do it without any tools (although an electric mixer is good to have).


Easy Vanilla Ice Cream

Recipe adapted from Manuela Kjeilen.


INGREDIENTS

  • 1 can (397 grams) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 dl whipping cream
  • 0.5 teaspoons ground vanilla pod


DIRECTIONS

Place the condensed milk and the whipping cream in the freezer for 20 minutes before you start. Take out the condensed milk from the freezer and pour it into a bowl. Whip it with an electric mixer until it is a bit lighter and fluffier. Pour in the whipping cream and continue to beat until it becomes thicker. Add the vanilla and whip some more until it is fluffy and thick. Pour into boxes or bowls and place in freezer chilling it, preferably over night.


I served my vanilla ice cream with my chocolate brownies, and they were SO good together. To see my brownie recipe click here. I added a bit of colour with sprinkles from Sweetapolita (here).

It really is super simple to vary this recipe and create different flavours. In another post I will show you how you can create other yummy ice cream flavours.


For now though, I wish you the best of days!
Much love,

  3. Oh no! Your weather sounds similar to Wisconsin! We haven't had a snowstorm in couple weeks, but we went from sweltering summer temps to below freezing in a matter of days. Hopefully you get some spring weather soon! And my goodness does this ice cream look scrumptious! I never thought to make homemade ice cream, but your recipe seems like one I could attempt to try!

    I hope you're having a lovely week, Mona!

  6. I never thought about doing my own ice cream before! This seems super easy indeed, and vanilla ice cream never goes out of style :D It's crazy that you got a snow storm - well, to my French continental weather, at least! Although we did get a few snowflakes in Paris yesterday, global warming makes everything go crazy :o But there's no excuse needed to eat ice cream, especially with brownie as you did here!

  11. This sounds so tasty and super easy! I have an ice cream maker somewhere - I've never used it as theres not enough room to fit it into the freezer! This seems like something I could try though.
