Yield: approx. 500ml

This Funfetti cake batter ice cream replicates the flavour of cake batter, but no cake box mix needed! And who doesn’t love a sprinkle-fest?


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup double (heavy) cream
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp + 1 tsp cornflour (cornstarch)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • ½ tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 cup rainbow ‘jimmie’ sprinkles
  • (optional)rainbow non pareils sprinkles, for decoration


  1. In a small bowl, mix ¼ cup milk with the cornflour (cornstarch), set aside. In a medium saucepan over low/medium heat, combine the rest of the milk, sugar and the salt. Heat, stirring frequently with a whisk until bubbles start to simmer on the sides. Don’t let it boil!
  2. Remove from heat, carefully add the cornflour (cornstarch) mixture, and continue to whisk. It should begin to thicken ever so slightly. Add the vanilla extract, cream of tartar, and almond extract. Stir for about a minute more then transfer to a refrigerator-proof bowl, set aside to cool to room temperature, stirring every now and then.
  3. Once room temperature (the mixture should be like a very thick cream in consistency at this point), cover and put in the fridge for approx. 2 hours.
  4. Remove from the fridge and pour into your ice cream maker, following manufacturers instructions.
  5. When finished churning, carefully but quickly stir in the sprinkles. Too much stirring will cause the sprinkles to leak their colour causing a muddy colour!
  6. Serve immediately or transfer to a freezer safe airtight container for later.
  7. (Optional) Serve with a sprinkle of rainbow nonpareils sprinkles.


Prep time doesn’t include freezing time which takes about 30-45 minutes in an ice cream maker.
