  1. Step 1:

    In a saucepan, heat the cream and milk.

  2. Step 2:

    In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and seeds of the vanilla pod until light and pale. Slowly add the hot cream and milk mixture, whisking all the time.

  3. Step 3:

    Return the mixture back into the pan and on a low heat keep stirring until the mixture thickens or coats the back of a spoon.

  4. Step 4:

    Pour the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool. Once cool, put the mixture into the ice cream machine bowl and churn the mixture for 45-60 minutes, until you get a lovely ice cream and transfer into a container and put into the freezer.

  5. Step 5:

    For the brulee effect, put the sugar into a heavy based pan and put onto the heat. Heat gently until you get a golden caramel. Pour the caramel onto a lined baking tray and leave to cool and harden.

  6. Step 6:

    Once hardened, break the caramel into shards or small pieces and place into a food processor. Process until a fine dust is achieved. Keep aside.

  7. Step 7:

    To serve, scoop some ice cream into a traditional French brulee ramekin dish and flatten into the dish with a palate knife. Take some caramel dust and cover the top of the ice cream.
