Vanilla ice-cream with sour cherries

I have this thing for homemade ice-cream. As with most things I cherish, it reminds me of my summers at my grandparents in the country side, where from time to time my grandma would treat us to homemade vanilla ice-cream from beautiful coffee cups. When I come to think of it, I´ve been making ice-cream for years: I “accidentally” put chocolate mousse in the freezer all the time and I make smoothie with so many frozen berries it´s practically a sorbet. 😉

So the other day we picked some more sour cherries and since I didn´t have time to try my skills at a real American cherry pie, I found this recipe that sounded doable, considering we had guests in the evening. IMG_6093


  • 4 stk egg yolks
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 stk vanilla bean
  • 3 dl cream



1. Whip the egg yolks and sugar to an eggnog.

2. Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds over the cream. Whip the cream stiff and mix with the eggnog and add the pitted cherries.

3. Find some pretty cups (if you have space in your freezer) and fill them with the foam. Place them in the freezer for 2-4 hours.



The ice-cream was much appreciated. Think I´ll be making more soon!

Bon appetit! 😉

xxx, Alina

    1. In Romania we used them a lot, especially since my grandma had a big tree in her garden. And unless we picked them, the birds would have eaten them or they´d get rotten.
