  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 pints heavy whipping cream

Directions

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Gradually add milk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.
  2. Whisk a small amount of hot milk mixture into the eggs; return all to the pan, whisking constantly. Cook and stir over low heat until mixture reaches at least 160° and coats the back of a metal spoon. Cool quickly by placing pan in a bowl of ice water; stir for 2 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
  3. Stir cream into custard. Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze. Allow to ripen in ice cream freezer or firm up in the refrigerator freezer for 2-4 hours before serving. Yield: 2-3/4 quarts.
