The Most Unbelievable Vanilla Ice Cream


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 quarts heavy cream
  • 8 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon almond flavoring


  • Combine sugar, flour and salt in a large saucepan; stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat, until mixture thickens and bubbles one minute.
