How to make slow cooker vanilla 'ice cream'

Print this recipe
Ice cream? Really? In a slow cooker? You're pulling my leg..
Nope, we're serious. This is a simple, straight-forward recipe for ice cream in a slow cooker.
It's not quite the silky smooth traditional type of ice cream but still creamy nonetheless because we use egg yolks to make a loose custard. No pots, no fuss, just a slow cooker, a microwave and your freezer :)

Slow Cooker Ice Cream
6
15 minutes
1 hour
1 hour 15 minutes
3 cups whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
½ teaspoon cornstarch
2 egg yolks
¼ cup half and half
1 teaspoon powdered gelatin
In a 6 quart slow cooker mix together milk, vanilla, sugar and cornstarch.
In a separate bowl whisk egg yolks and set aside.
Heat half and half in a bowl in the microwave. Add in gelatin and mix until dissolved. You may need to put it back into the microwave, for gelatin to completely melt.
Then slowly whisk in hot half and half mixture into eggs. Then add it all into the slow cooker and mix.
Cook on high for 1 hour.
Gently mix but do not scrape the sides.
Remove pot from slow cooker base and allow to cool. When pot is no longer hot put into freezer overnight.
Using a fork, scrape the ice cream to add more fluff then scoop and serve!

Don't be tempted to stir the butter into the cake mix; the moisture that builds up during the cooking process cooks the topping perfectly.
