Yields: 12 servings
Prep Time: 6 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Set a 2-quart stainless steel bowl into a much larger bowl that is partially filled with ice and water. Set the ice bath aside.
  2. Combine eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and salt in a 2-quart, microwave-safe glass bowl; whisk at least 1 minute or until the mixture is very well blended. Add whipping cream; whisk until mixture is well blended.
  3. See Cook’s Tips. Microwave the mixture for 3 minutes on 70% power. Remove from microwave oven and whisk thoroughly making sure that all of the mixture is well blended. Return mixture to the microwave and cook for an additional 3 minutes on 70% power. Again, remove from microwave oven and whisk thoroughly making sure that all of the mixture is well blended. Check the mixture for doneness. It should register at least 160°F and should coat the back of a spoon. If it does not, then cook for an additional 1 minute at 70% power, removing and whisking the mixture, until it thickens. Repeat last step as needed to thicken mixture.
  4. Whisk in whole milk and vanilla. Pour into top bowl of ice bath and whisk until mixture has cooled. The mixture can be frozen in an ice cream maker at this point, but the texture benefits from chilling several hours or overnight in refrigerator. To chill, cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the ice cream mixture.
  5. Using a 2-quart or larger ice cream maker, freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. After freezing, the ice cream will be soft and creamy. If a firmer consistency is desired, then transfer ice cream to an airtight container and store in freezer at least 2 hours or more until it reaches desired consistency.

Notes

Cook’s Tips: Cooking time and percent power may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave oven. Revise time or percent power as necessary to prevent overcooking eggs. In addition, be sure to whisk thoroughly after each cooking time. This recipe was tested using a 1000-watt microwave oven.
