Made in 15 minutes

Here for your indulgence are 3 (almost idiot proof) ice cream recipes, all with no eggs and no custard-making.

They're all as light as any ice cream can get, and all prepped in 15 minutes! There's no more work to be done other than watching the clock tick while it freezes. Easy peasy ice cream pie.

Raspberry ice cream - Absolutely beautiful and oh so tasty. View the recipe.

Lemon curd ice cream sandwiches - Lemony and sandwiched between 2 hearts of rosemary shortbread - stunning. See the recipe.

Ice cream tips

And a few tips to send you on your merry way? With pleasure.

1. Use cream straight out of the fridge so that it is as cold as possible.

2. Add any extra ingredients only when the cream is whipped into stiff peaks. Then just gently fold in the additional ingredients so that you don't beat the air out of the cream.  If you beat out the air, you'll get a 'flat' mixture that will just turn to a block of ice.

3. Shallow, flat, airtight containers are best for storing the ice cream in your freezer, resulting in the fastest freezing possible.

4. Using a proper ice cream scoop, dipped into hot water just before scooping, will ensure you get the most beautiful round balls of ice cream, perfect for crowning any cones.
