I was given a Cuisinart ice-cream maker for Christmas. Immediately I thought 'uh oh, another appliance for the cupboard' but, I'm seriously in love with it
(Vanilla ice-cream with a couple of crushed Flakes churned through, oh my!)
So far I've just followed the recipe booklet that came with it and if anyone has one - I have a question. I've mostly made vanilla ice-cream and the recipe says 'granulated sugar'. You mix the milk and sugar on low speed with a hand mixer until combined. What would be wrong with using caster sugar? It's finer and would take less time to dissolve than the granulated stuff.
Also, the recipes in the booklet belong in the 'that's not a recipe'
section - the vanilla ice-cream is just milk, vanilla extract, sugar and cream. I haven't ventured in to 'real' ice-cream yet. Isn't 'real' ice-cream made from egg yolks? Can I use a proper ice-cream recipe in the Cuisinart?
(For those who have one, please share any tried-and-tested recipes).
