Homemade German Ice Cream

Waffle Cones with Vanilla Ice CreamOne thing that will always make a hot, sunny day better is a scoop of ice cream in a waffle cone! German ice cream is modeled after Italian gelato – it tends to be hand-made, uses less cream (and more milk) and little or no eggs, and have an intense fruit or nut flavor. Our collection of German ice cream recipes starts with the simplest vanilla ice cream recipe, and continues with a selection of fresh flavors that will make a beautiful summer’s day even better. It’s much easier to make ice cream than many believe, and it’s also incredibly fun, particularly if the kids are involved.

Make your ice cream even more special by topping it with fresh fruit, jarred Morello cherries, or chocolate sprinkles. View even more toppings below.
