So, put on your apron, dust off that ice cream maker, and let’s get started!
For this delectable dessert, you’ll need:
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 cup whole milk
- 3/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 4 large egg yolks
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Step 1: Prepare Your Base
Begin by heating the milk and 1/2 cup of brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is steaming but not boiling. Remove it from the heat and set it aside.
Step 2: Whip Up the Egg Yolks
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and the remaining 1/4 cup of brown sugar until the mixture becomes pale and slightly thickened. This usually takes about 2-3 minutes of vigorous whisking.
Step 3: Combine and Cook
Slowly pour the warm milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to avoid curdling. Once combined, return the mixture to the saucepan.
Step 4: Heat and Thicken
Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until it thickens slightly. This should take about 5-7 minutes, and the mixture should coat the back of the spoon.
Step 5: Infuse with Flavor
Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the vanilla extract and ground cinnamon. Allow the mixture to cool for about 15 minutes.
Step 6: Chill Out
Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap (making sure it touches the surface to prevent a skin from forming), and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Step 7: Churn and Freeze
Once the mixture is thoroughly chilled, it’s time to break out your ice cream maker! Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to churn your ice cream until it reaches a soft-serve consistency.
Step 8: Freeze to Perfection
Transfer the churned ice cream into an airtight container and freeze it for a few hours until it’s firm enough to scoop. Don’t forget to lick the ice cream paddle; it’s the best part!
Step 9: Serve and Enjoy
Scoop your homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Ice Cream into bowls or cones, and savor the rich, creamy goodness. You can also top it with a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra burst of flavor.
