  • For the vanilla base:
  • 9 free-range egg yolks
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 T vanilla paste
  • 4 cups cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • For the ice cream:
  • 1 batch vanilla ice-cream base
  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 T golden syrup
  • 2 Crunchies, roughly chopped

To make the vanilla ice-cream base: 

1. Beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla extract using an electric mixer until pale. This aerates the eggs and makes for a lighter, fluffier ice cream.

2. Combine the egg-yolk mixture with the cream and milk, then pour into a saucepan. Cook over a low to medium heat until thickened. Alternatively, cook in a doubleboiler.

3. Allow the mixture to cool, then churn in an ice-cream machine until ready to serve. Makes 2 litres

To make the Caramelised banana-and-crunchie ice cream:

1. Make the ice-cream base.

2. Caramelise the bananas in a pan in the golden syrup over a high heat for 4 minutes. Mash the bananas using a fork and allow to cool.

3. Fold the cooled bananas and Crunchies
