The Best Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the milk, cream and 1/4 cup of the sugar. With the tip of a knife, scrape the seeds from the vanilla beans into the pan, then toss the pods into the pan. Place over medium heat and bring just to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and let steep for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, vigorously whisk together the egg yolks, salt and the remaining 1/2 cup sugar until the mixture falls in a thick, wide ribbon when the whisk is lifted. Remove the vanilla pods from the milk mixture and reheat to a bare simmer. Slowly add the milk mixture to the yolk mixture while whisking constantly. Pour the custard back into the pan and cook gently over medium-low heat, stirring often with a wooden spoon, until thickened enough to coat the spoon, about 3 minutes. Draw a finger across the spoon. The custard is ready if it does not immediately bleed back together. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean storage container, let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate overnight.

Pour the chilled custard into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a tightly covered container and freeze for at least 6 hours before serving. Makes 1 1/2 quarts.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Performs same as cheaper model, save up for Lello I've owned this machine for approximately 3 years so I've tried it many times. Getting your ice cream out of the mixing bowl is a pain because there's a non removable post in the middle of the bowl so scooping out the ice cream is difficult. Even the firmest setting doesn't make ready to eat ice cream as it's motor can't churn past very soft ice cream. It takes 50 minutes for a mushy consistency that still needs to be refrigerated. The dasher doesn't scrape down the sides well so a layer forms on the sides not allowing the middle to freeze as quickly creating ice crystals (rough texture of ice cream). The cool down feature isn't great. Putting the cooked custard base in an ice bath then the refrigerator works better. The mixing bowl is very narrow, and I'm unsure from what type of metal it is constructed, maybe aluminum. It does have a nice tone to tell you know when to put in add-ins, and when it's done. Mine is going to be sold at a yard sale. I saved up and bought a Lello which is quiet, easy to remove ice cream, easy to clean, all stainless steel, and makes ice cream in 20 minutes. Yep, 20 minutes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Great product: most important u can see the temp. Seeing the temp and the other digital info is very helpful for me. I tried other ice cream machines on the market and none actual show the temp which is not helpful for me at all. I'm a very visual cook so numbers are helpful

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More reliable than the pre-freeze bowl types I've tried a couple of the Ice cream makers where you have to pre-freeze the bowls (i.e. Kitchen-aide, Cuisinart and Deni). None of these would maintain their coldness long enough to properly make ice cream or other types of frozen desserts to my satisfaction during warm months. That's has all changed now with the Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Compressor. I've made ice cream and gelato several times now with great results. I contemplated for a few months at first trying to rationalize buying this machine, torn between paying the price for this machine and some of the reviews. I'm so glad now that I gave in and purchased this!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product I got this only two days ago and have already made 3 types of ice cream. I got this after reading all the other reviews and speaking to a store associate. It is simple to use and worth every dollar. I can't wait for the holidays with this ice cream maker. It is quiet, fast, and well built.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breville Ice Cream compressor I love this machine! Other people have said it is bulky but I have no problem moving it around. The pre-cool option is a real help. There are many options on this machine so you really can make any type of frozen product. One of the features that I like a lot is the choice of music that alerts you that your product is done. If you cannot attend to it immediately it keeps the ice cream cold for another three hours! How great is that? I purchased two more Brevilles as gifts. I have to say that Williams-Sonoma had a wonderful sale that allowed me to do this. I really think that anyone who purchases this will be totally satisfied.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Vegan Ice Cream! I have been using an old Delonghi machine for many, many years... when it started to fail, I began to search for a new one. After a lot of research, I decided on the Smart Scoop. All I can say is "Wow!" What a difference! One of the key benefits is the hardness setting. The ice cream from my old machine was always like soft serve. Ice cream from the Smart Scoop is much harder - thick and creamy - without extra time in the freezer. Also, note that I make only vegan ice cream - and it comes out great. I have been making a batch a day! I can't wait to keep trying new recipes! If anyone has questions about making dairy-free delights, I'm happy to answer them. The ice cream that I've been making with the Smart Scoop is better than any I have ever bought in the store (and I have tried every vegan brand). Thank you Breville and Williams-Sonoma!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh Ice Cream D A N G E R Good-delicious-fantastic...understatements! This machine is funtastular! Can't wait to see all the yummy creations. This machine is not quiet but I found the noise level nothing to fuss over. It's not a light weight machine but keep in mind it does the work quickly with any need to pre- freeze any bowls. If you like spur of the moment this is priceless!
