Step 1: You will need
- 5 medium egg yolks
- 750 ml single cream
- 150 g caster sugar
- 4 tbsp cocoa powder
Step 2: Make a basic custard with Cocoa Powder
Separate 5 eggs, keeping the yolks in a small bowl and discarding the whites. Whisk them all together until they are well beaten. Then mix the egg yolks in a saucepan with 750ml of single cream and 150 grams of caster sugar. Heat on a medium heat, stirring frequently until almost at the boil. When almost boiling add 4 tablespoons of Cocoa Powder and stir in thoroughly.
Remove mixture from heat and pour into a cold bowl or jug, and leave to cool fully.
Step 3: Transfer mixture to ice cream maker
Once the mixture is cool, transfer everything into your ice cream maker. Check your manufacturers instructions but for this quantity you will need to put the machine on for roughly 30 minutes.
Alternatively, if you don't have an ice cream maker, you can simply pour the mixture into a tub and bung it in the freezer, but you will need to stir it regularly as it sets, which will take up to 5 hours.
Once the time is up and the ice cream has set, simply scoop and serve!
