2 people made this

This is a very rich and creamy ice cream based on custard. You don't need an ice cream maker to make it!


Serves: 4 

  • 2 1/2 cups regular milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla flavoured custard powder
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh cream
  • 1 cup dried apricots, soaked for 4 to 6 hours

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Extra time:2hours freezing  ›  Ready in:2hours30min 

  1. Bring the apricots in their soaking liquid to the boil, then drain, cool and chop finely.
  2. Dissolve the custard powder in 1/2 cup cold milk and set aside. In a non-stick saucepan, combine the milk and sugar and bring to a boil. Add the custard powder mixture and simmer for 3-4 minutes until the custard is thick.
  3. Strain the mixture if it appears lumpy. Cool completely, add the cream and apricots and mix well. Pour into a shallow container, cover and freeze till almost set.
  4. Divide it into 2 batches and churn each batch separately in a blender till the ice crystals break down. Transfer to a shallow container. Cover and freeze till firm.
