Dorie's Vanilla Ice Cream


It has been a very month for me that I haven't been able to keep up with the Tuesdays With Dorie challenges, however I did manage to get this week's in and will be doing some catch up this weekend. This week's Tuesdays With Dorie baking challenge was Dorie's Vanilla Ice Cream, chosen by Lynne of Cafe LynnyLu (who has the recipe within her blog). This recipe was perfect for the summer and a great one to really be creative with.

The ice cream recipe is straightforward in that it only involves 5 wholesome ingredients - whole milk, heavy cream, a vanilla bean or vanilla extract, egg yolks and sugar. A custard is made with the ingredients before churning in an ice cream maker... how simple is that?! For those that want to be creative, Dorie also includes a few variations by adding some ingredients to the custard to create new flavors such as: mint chocolate chunk, honey vanilla, cinnamon, "crunchy" or swirled. I love how versatile vanilla ice cream recipes are and they serve as a perfect base to be creative. For the challenge, I kept it simple and made only vanilla ice cream. It was especially delicious with a slice of cherry pie!


  1. Simple is great! Perfect topping for the cherry pie. Thanks for making Dorie's recipe with me.

  2. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I'm trying to find out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
