Cake Batter Ice Cream

Tadd said this was the best ice cream we have made so far. I might have to agree. This was really good. I used chocolate cake mix. I thought it had a good chocolate flavor with out being too rich and sweet. I heated the milk and sugar over low heat until the sugar dissolved and then added the remaining ingredients. I chilled it overnight and then put it in the ice cream maker.

(Printable Recipe)

1 cup whole milk, well chilled
¾ cup granulated sugar
2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup cake mix

Place freezer bowl of ice cream maker into the freezer. It is better to keep it in there 24/7 that way it is always ready.

In a medium bowl, whisk the milk and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla to taste.
Stir in cake mix, making sure there are no lumps. Pour mixture into the freezer bowl and let mix until it has thickened (about 25-30 minutes). Remove ice cream from freezer bowl and place into a separate container. Place freezer bowl and the ice cream into the freezer to further harden.
