Earl Grey Ice Cream + Ice Cream Maker Giveaway


Eid Mubarak folks! Happy happy Eid! This Ramadan was intense, and wonderful, and amazing and so fulfilling. But um, my body needs a break so I’m glad Eid is finally here. For those that don’t know, Muslims around the world (including this blogger) have been fasting from sunrise to sunset for the past month to observe the month of Ramadan. The month has now drawn to a close, and we are celebrating the holiday of Eid ๐Ÿ™‚


Here’s to celebrating! Morning iced coffee runs, afternoon ice cream treats, and licking the little bits of chocolate off my fingers when I bake on an weekend afternoon. And to get you started, I wanted to share this Earl Grey ice cream recipe with you all. It’s creamy and smooth, with the flavor of tea really shining through at the end. The next time I make this, I think I’m going to try and pair it with chocolate in some way. I have a feeling the flavors will compliment one another real well.


And that brings me to my special Eid surprise. BakingPartTime is giving away a brand new Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker! So you can make this ice cream, as well as a few other flavors that I’ll be posting about in the next few days.ย

Earl Grey Ice Cream + Ice Cream Maker Giveaway
Adapted from Gimme Some Oven - http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/earl-grey-ice-cream/
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 5 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. In a small saucepan, warm the milk, heavy cream, and sugar over medium-heat, stirring occasionally. Once the milk is steaming (but not boiling), remove pan from heat. Place the tea bags into the pan, cover and steep at room temperature for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove tea bags, then return to medium-heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and vanilla until combined and smooth. Once the milk mixture is re-warmed, add a little bit of the hot milk mixture to the eggs, and quickly whisk in until combined. Repeat 2-3 more times with more of the milk mixture, then gradually pour in the remainder of the milk mixture into the egg yolks and whisk quickly until combined. If you add all the milk at once or add it too quickly, the hot milk will cook the egg yolks and ruin the mixture.
  3. Return the new milk/egg mixture to the saucepan, and cook over medium heat, stirring and scrapping the bottom of the pan constantly until the mixture thickens to a custard and coats the back of a wooden spoon. Do not let it boil! You want it thick, but not curdled.
  4. Immediately strain through a fine-mesh strainer, and then refrigerate until completely cooled (at least 6-8 hours). Then freeze with an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

  1. I follow BakingPartTime on Instagram (as @margotcore), but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to take a blog post and post it there. You don’t put this on instagram yourself so I can’t repost it.

  4. I just tried to post a comment, not sure it worked. Shared on FB and liked your page a long time ago! I have wanted an ice cream maker for awhile now. I can’t wait to try out different flavors and try making some allergen free ice cream for my son who has a lot of food allergies. As he gets older I want him to be able to enjoy treats like the rest of us, despite his allergies!

  5. Shared on Instagram, excited for this giveaway because I’m always looking to make new things and this would be such a great addition to my appliances. The possibilities with an ice cream maker are endless!

  6. I really want this !! Choose me! Posted on IG :). 4 stars cuz I’m sure it’s yummy – I would give 5 stars but I don’t have an ice team maker to test it on ๐Ÿ˜‰ HINT!

  7. I liked and shared on Facebook! I haven’t tried this recipe, but it really sounds interesting. I’m reading a book about India and it reminds me of some of the desserts described in the book (Secret Daughter by Shilpi Gowda). I’d like to be able to make my own ice cream because I’m a diabetic and I’d have more control over the ingredients. Thanks!
