Granny’s Ice Cream


This deliciously, creamy ice-cream evokes such fond memories  of my youth and my very special grandmother. She was one of the kindest people I have ever known. I remember her welcoming arms, her big hugs and kisses and the best home cooked meals you could wish for. She used to cook the most comforting meals and there was always a delicious aroma wafting through their home. This recipe was always one of my favourites, as my granny always made sure she had a batch for our visits – what kiddie doesn’t enjoy ice-cream?!!

This heavenly, rich ice-cream is so simple to make that it is hard to believe you only need a few ingredients and 20 mins to prepare it. No churning, just pop it in the freezer and then yum, yum, enjoy 🙂


4 eggs, separated

500 ml cream

1 tin condensed milk

vanilla essence or vanilla pod
