Lemon Raspberry Ice Cream - A Guest Post by MiMi

   I came up with a recipe for a lemon raspberry Texas sheet cake.  I had extra lemons and raspberries so I decided to make ice cream to go with it.  These two flavors go really well together and made for a very refreshing dessert. It seems to be that I have a new hobby.  I really enjoy coming up with new flavors of homemade ice cream.  My family seems to be willing taste testers.

The recipe for the lemon raspberry Texas sheet cake will be coming soon.


Lemon Raspberry Ice Cream


2 tsp lemon rind, finely grated
Juice of one lemon
1 1/2 tsp lemon extract
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 recipe raspberry glaze

  1. Add the lemon juice to the milk and set aside
  2. Whisk the two eggs until light and fluffy. 1-2 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time.  Continue whisking until completely blended, about a minute more.  Whisk  in the lemon rind and flavoring.
  4. Stir the milk and cream together.  Add the egg mixture and stir.
  5. Freeze according to the directions for your ice cream freezer. 
  6. Place ice cream in freezer container and dot with raspberry glaze.  Swirl raspberries throughout ice cream and freeze until ready to serve.
