Cake Batter Ice Cream

I came up with this recipe by experimenting with different flavors. As I'm learning from making ice cream, once you have a good basic vanilla under your belt, you can start mixing up the ingredients and creating your favorites, and cake batter is my favorite!

Here's the Cake Batter recipe:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
  • 2 cups yellow or white cake mix

Sift the cake batter to remove clumps.

Whisk sugar and yolks until sugar is no longer gritty.

In a pot, bring the half and half to a simmer.

Add the warm half and half to the yolk and sugar mixture, a little at a time, whisking constantly. Add the vanilla, heavy cream and cake mix.

Whisk well and strain. Set in the freezer for about a half hour until the mix gets good and cold but not frozen.

Freeze in the ice cream maker. When the ice cream gets to the "soft serve" consistency, mix in the sprinkles. Eat immediately for soft serve, or freeze for hand scoop firmness.
