I just tried making ice cream for the first time ever, it's currently in the freezer now (I don't have an ice cream maker, so I'm doing it the oldschool way :) ).
What I was wondering is if I made a mistake or something, because it tastes quite like custard rather than how normal ice cream tastes...
I did expect it to taste a bit like custard, due to it being a custard base. I heated some milk and cream with vanilla, and let the vanilla infuse. Then, I beated egg yolks with sugar, added some of the warm vanilla-milk-cream mix to the sugar-egg mix, then returned it to the cream, as the recipe said. I cooked it (not letting it boil) until it coated the back of the spoon, let it cool down, and now its in the freezer, but it tastes really like custard. Should I have added more vanilla?
Any help is much appreciated, so thanks in advance!! :D
