A glorious way to make the most of leftover Christmas pudding, Galton Blackiston's ice cream can be served on its own or as one part of a more substantial festive dessert - either way it will delight both kids and big kids

Method
1.
Add the cream and milk to a pan and scrape in the seeds from the vanilla pod. Add the scraped pod and place the pan over a medium-high heat
Back to school
Making custard is a great skill for older kids to pick up. Not only is it great drizzled over many desserts, but it is also used as a base for ice cream - as it is here
2.
Bring to a gentle simmer, then remove from the heat and set aside to infuse for 30 minutes
3.
In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar until pale and smooth. Bring the milk and cream back up to a simmer
4.
While slowly whisking the eggs, gradually pour in the hot cream
Room for a little one
Two sets of hands will make this step a lot of easier. Ask a child to keep whisking while you pour in the hot cream – just be careful not to scald them
5.
Return the mixture to the saucepan. Place the pan over a low heat and stir continuously until you have a thin custard that coats the back of a wooden spoon
6.
Remove the pan from the heat. Pass the custard through a fine sieve into a bowl and allow to cool completely, laying cling film directly on top of the custard to prevent a skin forming
7.
Churn the custard in an ice cream maker, stirring in the Christmas pudding as the mixture begins to thicken and freeze. Store in the freezer until ready to serve
Back to school
Do not fret if you don’t have an ice cream maker. Simply replace the single cream with double cream and freeze the custard, giving it a good slosh with a whisk every half an hour or so until it sets
