Vanilla Bean-Cloudberry Ice-Cream with Waffles

I bought and ice-cream maker a few weeks back and now I’ve finally tried it out and made my own ice-cream. I was surprised how simple it was!! My ice-cream maker is a low-budget brand but still worked really well and the ice-cream was amazing! I’m definitely going to make my own ice-cream from now on. The recipe below is for a Vanilla Bean Ice-Cream and then I just added my favourite Cloudberry jam. You can use whatever fresh or frozen berries you like or jam. Cloudberries in Sweden are also known as “Gold of the Forest” because of their golden colour. When the sun hits the berries, they shine!

A friend of mine asked if I wanted to come by after work for waffles, and since I’m a big fan of waffles….amongst many other sweet things, as you may know by now, I said yes straight away! And since I know she’s a big fan of Cloudberries too, I of course brought my homemade delicious ice-cream with me.

Vanilla Bean Ice-Cream with Berries
4 egg yolks
3/4 dl sugar (75ml)
1 vanilla pod
3 1/2 dl whipping cream

2 dl your favourite berries or jam (200ml)

Mix egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until sugar dissolves and the mixture is creamy and fluffy. In a separate bowl, add whipping cream and vanilla seeds. Whip until fluffy. Combine both mixtures carefully and add your favourite berries or jam.

Pour the mixture in your ice-cream maker and follow instructions according to your brand. If you don’t have an ice-cream maker, pour the mixture in a plastic container and let it freeze for a couple of hours. Stir occasionally to minimize the amount of ice particles.

Eat it like it is or serve it with additional fresh berries, waffles, pies or whatever you fancy.
