Vanilla cream gelato

Vanilla cream gelato (home-made italian ice cream).


Hello everybody,

Here follows a recipe for gelato cream, my dad’s favourite…

Custard was the first cake I cooked when I was young.

It ‘s nice to remember that, although I was not tall enough to reach the kitchen stove, I was doing something that appeared to me a rather a difficult matter!



½ l. milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. sugar (if available, replace 50 gr. of sugar with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
One vanilla pod
4 egg yolks
½ (grated) lemon


Mix all dry ingredients together, then add the egg yolks while keeping on stirring.

Add all liquids and, after a good mixing, pour everything in a saucepan adding one vanilla pod (cut length wise with a paring knife) and finally bring the mix up to 85 ° C  (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.

Allow the emulsion to cool down.

Turn the ice cream maker , add the emulsion and let stir for about 30/40 min.

Let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .

Enjoy your gelato!
