The first thing to do in order to make cinnamon ice cream is cut a fresh vanilla pod open; do so by cutting it in half, lengthways, using a sharp knife. Scrape the seeds you find inside into a saucepan.
Then, heat the pan over a medium-to-low heat and mix in 1 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of single cream until it all begins to boil. Once the mixture starts to bubble, reaching its boiling point, carefully take it off the heat.
Break 2 eggs into a small bowl and whisk until well beaten and smooth. Then pour the beaten eggs into the pan.
Put the pan on the heat and stir until the mixture thickens. This will take around 4 minutes. Once this time has elapsed, take the mixture off the heat. It is important that you do this step quickly to prevent the mixture from ending up too liquid, as if it were some type of cream.
Add 2 tablespoons of cinnamon powder to the mixture and leave it in the refrigerator until it has cooled thoroughly. After the mixture has completely cooled, pour it into ice cream molds and freeze.
Periodically - every 20 or 30 minutes - take it out of the freezer and stir the mixture with rods. This will ensure your homemade cinnamon ice cream is as smooth and soft as it should be.
Once the mixture has thickened, you will have a delicious homemade cinnamon ice cream ready to add to your recipe book. It can be served alone as dessert or mid-afternoon snack, or as a side to all kinds of pies and cakes.
