you scream i scream, we all scream for ice cream

Ryan and I got a new toy to help us get through the summer, an Ice Cream Maker! We have had our eye on this contraption for quite sometime and finally caved in and got it. We had to order it, so it just got delivered today. We are so excited that we had to break it in. The flavor I choose to make is one of my favorites, cake batter. I am sad to report it doesn't come close to the Chocolate Better Batter from Maggie Moos (the ice cream we served at the wedding) but it was pretty good. Here is the recipe:

1 cup half & half
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup cake mix

Whisk the half & half and granulated sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla and then stir in cake mix (to avoid lumps sift in). Pour mixture into the freezer bowl and churn as directed by your machine.
