The Best French Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe
No-Churn Custard-Based Ice Cream
Here's what you'll need to make this delicious ice cream.
The secret to making a custard-based no-churn ice cream is
pate a bombe
. Pate a bombe is a thick egg-yolk and sugar syrup foam used to make French buttercream. First, make the pate a bombe:
Whip yolks until thick and creamy. Cook sugar and water together to 245F. Stream into yolks and whip until thick.
Make the base by whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. Add half and half, vanilla, and salt. Whip in pate a bombe.
Pour the base into a freezer-safe container, and freeze until firm. Your ice cream will be ready to serve after 6-8 hours in the freezer.
