Cinnamon Ice Cream

1 min read
Infuse ice cream with a double-hit of cinnamon - grinding your own spices is worth the effort.

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes (+ Freezing)

Serves: 6


  • 225ml milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 450ml whipping or double cream


  1. Put the milk in a pan with the cinnamon stick and bring to the boil. In a bowl, whisk together the yolks, sugar, and ground cinnamon. Discard the cinnamon stick, then strain the hot milk over the yolks, whisking continuously.

  2. Pour the custard mix back into a pan and cook on a low-ish heat for 8-10 mins, stirring constantly until thickened. Whisk the custard into the cream, then cool, chill and freeze in an ice-cream maker.
