What are the ingredients needed for lemon ice cream with cornstarch?

Preparation steps

  1. The first step is to dissolve the cornstarch properly, using water, which should ideally be at room temperature. Next, add the sugar and the lemon zest and mix properly for at least one minute.

  2. Once this is said, we move to a cooking saucepan and turn on the medium heat. It is necessary that at all times we are stirring the mixture, as it will prevent it from sticking and burning. We will do this until it boils and takes a thick consistency.

  3. Once we have reached this point, it is time to remove from the heat and let it warm up (we should not put it in the refrigerator or freezer at this time). The next step consists of incorporating the 2 egg yolks that we will have to have beaten previously and quickly.

  4. This is the perfect moment to cook for approximately 2 more minutes in a bain-marie, without stopping stirring at any time (as we have mentioned, this prevents the mixture from both sticking and burning.

  5. It is interesting, once we put it in the freezer, to give it a blender blow and put it back in to break the crystals that are formed and get a suitable texture, since we do not have an ice cream maker.

  6. Remove from the heat and let it cool down; add the 2 lightly beaten egg yolks, mixing quickly. Cook 2 more minutes in a bain-marie, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat, add the lemon juice and mix. Let cool and gently stir in the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

  7. Pour the mixture into a large bowl and take it to the freezer. When it is a little frozen, take it out and beat it for a few minutes. Then, return it to the freezer.

  8. Serve with wafers and garnish with lemon zest.
