Vanilla Ice cream

Posted by on Jun 26, 2012 in Desserts, Ice Cream | 2 comments

Vanilla is the most popular flavor among ice creams. This is a simple and delicious recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream and I used my old fashioned Aroma ice cream maker to prepare this. You can use vanilla bean or pure vanilla extract. Vanilla beans are generally available in grocery stores and super markets or you can buy them from ebay or in large quantity for less price. If you are using vanilla extract try to use the pure extract which is always good. After preparing the ice cream store it in an air tight container covering the box with a cling wrap or a plastic sheet and then with the lid. You can store it upto 2 to 3 weeks or if unopened you can store it for long. It is always good to have homemade ice cream...

Ice cream cake is my family’s all time favorite. We generally order it from outside for any special occasion.  My favorite place for Ice cream Cake is Cold Stone Creamery. I always wanted to try it at home and have been looking for a good recipe. Finally found an easy and brilliant recipe and gave it a try for my 3rd Wedding Anniversary last week. It came out just as I expected and my husband (GS) and I loved it. It just tasted like the Cassata Ice cream (but was missing a couple more layers) from “Arun Ice creams” a popular ice cream parlor chain in South India. It is so simple to make this cake if you are using ready made ice creams. This is to make a 9″ round cake. Ingredients: Semisweet chocolate – 1 cup Heavy cream –...
