Sweet Milk Ice Cream and Grandkids

My late beloved Mom would've been 90 on June 30th.  I was able to have all my grandchildren here to get a picture together. 

Caiden and Cissy made my Mom's favorite angel food cake at Cooking Camp this past week.   We also made some homemade vanilla ice cream to have with it, which was very tasty!

Cissy spent the night and we made some patriotic red, white and blue krispie treats and swirled some white chocolate on them, and sprinkled them with sprinkles.  We used a star cookie cutter and put some on lollipop sticks, and the leftovers we rolled into balls, and put them on sticks, too.  We put two each in cellophane bags as party favors for all the kids.  Cissy is a great helper!

Sweet Milk Ice Cream

The kids and I made this to go along with my late beloved mom's favorite angel food cake .


  • 1/2 cup whole milk powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch (we used 1 tablespoon cornstarch)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla


How to cook Sweet Milk Ice Cream

  1. Instructions
  2. In a large  saucepan, whisk together the dried milk, sugar, and tapioca starch.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  4. Set the saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook the ice cream base, stirring constantly, until it becomes just slightly thicker than heavy cream; it will thinly coat the spoon or spatula you're using.
  5. Remove the pan from the heat, and pour the base into a heatproof mixing bowl, stirring occasionally as it cools to prevent a skin from forming.
  6. Once the base has cooled to just slightly warmer than room temperature, lay a piece of plastic wrap on the surface, again to prevent a skin from forming.
  7. Transfer the bowl to the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, to chill completely.
  8. Freeze the base in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions.
  9. Transfer the ice cream to a covered container, and freeze until ready to serve.
  10. The ice cream may firm up a bit as it freezes, so leave it at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes to soften before serving, if necessary.
