Ok. I have said it before. We don’t “do” vanilla ice cream. We do, however, do malts, ice cream sandwiches, cake & ice cream and, of course, sundaes! Vanilla ice cream is a great starting point for all of the above. Homemade vanilla ice cream = nirvana. The picture above is Will’s patriotic sundae from the Fourth of July weekend.
Somewhere in downtown Kansas City my husband just got a headache as I posted this sideways picture. I can’t figure out how to turn it around. But, you have seen a sundae before. You get the idea. This one has caramel, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. Perfection.
I have made this ice cream a few times and it is always always always worth it. So, while you won’t see me cozying up to a big bowl of plain vanilla, you can be sure vanilla ice cream doesn’t last long at our house. I have yet to get crazy with mix-ins, flavor additions, etc. but there is always tomorrow.
Next week: Banana Bundt Cake. Why do I love bundt cakes? Probably because they look perttty without me having to summon any decorating skills.
