Vanilla-Flavoured Summer Berries with Vanilla Ice-Cream

Serves 4


1 tsp cornflour

3 egg yolks

½ cup caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla bean paste

2 cups milk

300ml pure cream

2 x 250g punnet strawberries, hulled, sliced or halved

2 x 125g punnet raspberries

2 x 125g punnet blueberries

1 vanilla bean, split through centre

2 cups white sugar



  1. To make ice-cream, whisk cornflour, egg yolks, caster sugar and vanilla bean paste in a bowl. Pour milk and cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Heat until small bubbles form around the edge of saucepan. Remove from heat and slowly pour into egg mixture, whisking constantly until well combined.
  2. Pour mixture back into saucepan and return to heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 10 minutes or until custard coats the back of a spoon. Cool.
  3. Pour custard through a sieve into a 6-cup-capacity loaf tin. Cover with plastic wrap and put in freezer for 4–5 hours or until frozen. Spoon ice-cream into a food processor and churn until smooth. Return to loaf tin and refreeze.
  4. Combine berries in a large bowl 
and then spoon into a large sterilised jar. 
Scrape seeds from vanilla bean and put 
in a saucepan with bean, white sugar and 1 cup water. Stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Pour into a jug and allow to cool. When cold pour over fruit, secure lid and put in fridge. To serve, spoon berries into bowl, followed by ice-cream.
