I have acquired a coveted item. My grandma’s Kitchenaid Mixer. So yes, now I have two. More bowls, more mixing power… what’s wrong with more?
Isn’t she a beaut?! Anyway. To show gram that I’m putting her to good use, I made ice cream with it. Old school appliance and new school ice cream maker. Boom.
I used the Ben & Jerry’s vanilla ice cream recipe and dumped in some cherries at the end. Simple and yummy. Before I got started, I had the awful task of pitting cherries. BOO. But whatever.
For the ice cream, you’ll need:
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
Whip the eggs and sugar together until fluffy.
Add the whipping cream, milk, and vanilla and whisk until combined.
Place the mixture into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer’s directions to make.
About a minute or two until it’s done, add in your cherries.
I hope you’re proud, Gram! 🙂
