Sugar - 225 gms
Milk - 750 ml
Egg yolks- 6
Pinch of salt


  • Place half the sugar in a heavy based saucepan and melt over gentle heat until caramelized to a deep golden brown. Remove from the heat and stir in the milk.
  • Take care as the caramel mixture will bubble up fiercely when the milk is added. Stir until the caramel has dissolved, then set aside to cool.
  • Beat the egg yolks, remaining sugar and the salt together until the mixture is very pale and thick and will make a ribbon trail when the beater is lifted. 
  • Gradually beat i the caramel milk, then pour the mixture into the saucepan.
  • Cook very gently, stirring, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Remove from the heat and leave to cool, stirring occasionally.
  • Pour into freezer trays and freeze, beating the mixture once or twice during freezing.

Chopped toasted nuts such as hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans or Brazil nuts may be added to the partially frozen mixture after beating.
