Easy Lemon Ice Cream



Not the most sophisticated of ice creams, it's still delicious, and it can be made without an ice cream maker. Just four ingredients! I learned this from Lena, who made this for our 13-course dinner almost a year ago. (Posted about it here!)

Easy Lemon Ice Cream

2 tbsp lemon juice (or more, for stronger flavor)
2 egg yolks
150 ml powdered sugar
200 ml whipping cream (heavy cream)

Mix lemon with sugar and egg yolks in a small bowl. Beat the cream until it holds stiff peaks, and fold in the lemon mixture. Freeze in a bowl, several small bowls, or into hollowed-out lemons like Lena did. Freeze for at least four hours.

Recipe in Swedish:
Citronglass

Sounds like a lovely semifreddo. Nigella Lawson has a similar recipe with honey and pine nuts.

Citronglass låter mycket godare än isig, tråkig sorbet.

I shall certainly try this (WITH an ice-cream maker) although I'm sure it won't look half as good without those cool heart-shaped bowls...

Lena - no, thank YOU. This really is a great reciep!

Shelly - it could indeed be called a semifreddo. It's softer than most semifreddos I've tried though - edible straight out of the freezer.

Krakelspektakel - absolut! :)

Onemorehandbag - I love these bowls! They're oven-proof ramekins, made by Le Creuset. They're a bit on the big side for some desserts (like crème brulée) but perfect for ice cream.

You may want to delete the above comment. This person is going around to many other food blogs leaving the exact same comments. In my book, that's spam.

By the way, Great blog!

Thank you Barbara! Yes, I'm not very fond of spam either, so I usually remove it. Thank you very much for bringing it to my attention!
