Well, we are in the middle of summer and still trying to beat the heat by cooling our parched tongues with relief from something beyond iced cold. Ice cream is one of our all time favorite summer dessert treats, but there is another frozen dessert that is richer and far more luscious.
Although National Frozen Custard Day is celebrated on August 8, we couldn’t wait until then to drool over and feature this dense creamy magical goodness. So what’s the difference between ice cream and frozen custard? While they both are frozen, cool and creamy, ice cream is made from milk, cream (or both) while the ingredients of frozen custard are milk, cream, and egg yolks.
The ingredients needed for this Frozen Vanilla Custard from the good folks at MyRecipes.com are – 2 cups milk, 1/2 cup half-and-half, 1/2 cup sugar, 5 large egg yolks, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract.
