"A moment later the puddings appeared. Blocks of ice cream in every flavour you could think of"

With that the savoury courses from The Great Hall Feast are complete so I hope you've got your sweet tooth ready! First up... Ice-Cream!


This magical homemade ice-cream recipe is incredibly easy to make and once you've mastered the base you can use it to create a whole host of flavours! I've come up with four signature lightning bolt ice-cream block flavours inspired by the Hogwarts Houses - Cherry, Pistachio, Caramel and Blueberry!


Hogwarts Homemade Ice Cream Block Ingredients:

(makes 12 lightning blocks)

  • 500ml milk

  • 300ml double cream

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 5 egg yolks

  • 140g sugar

  • 1 tsp cherry extract

  • 50g glace cherries

  • 1 tsp pistachio extract

  • 1 tsp caramel extract

  • 2 tbsp blueberry jam

  • food colouring (red, green, yellow and blue)

  • toppings of your choice (I've used whipped cream, nuts and candy)

Hogwarts House Ice Cream Recipe Method:

  1. To make the ice-cream base place a saucepan on a medium heat and pour in the milk, cream and vanilla. Heat until hot but not boiling.

  2. Separate the egg yolks and add those into a bowl with sugar. Whisk through until pale and fluffy. Slowly pour the hot milk in, whisking continuously to avoid lumps.

  3. Return the mixture to the heat and cook through while stirring continuously for 10 minutes. You'll know it's ready when the mixture coats the back of a spoon and the trail holds when you swipe your finger through.

  4. Once ready strain the mixture to remove any lumps. (Wizard Tip! To cool the mixture down quickly fill a larger bowl with iced water and then balance the bowl with your mixture on top). Once cool divide into 4 smaller bowls

  5. For the Gryffindor Cherry Ice Cream, chop the glace cherries and add to the ice-cream mix along with the cherry extract and red food colouring. Stir until even.

  6. For the Slytherin Pistachio Ice Cream, add the pistachio extract and green food colouring to the base.

  7. For the Hufflepuff Salted Caramel Ice Cream, add the salted caramel extract to the base - the colour of the extract should be dark enough that you don't need food colouring, but add extra if you prefer

  8. For the Ravenclaw Blueberry Ice Cream, add the blueberry jam and blue food colouring to the base and whisk until smooth.

  9. If you don't have an ice-cream machine, place each into a plastic container and freeze, whisking well after each hour for 3 hours. If using a machine, pour the mixture in one at a time and churn until thick.

  10. Line the plastic containers with clingfilm and then after the final mix, pour into the containers and level. Freeze for another 2-3 hours.

  11. Once solid, remove from the containers, peel off the cling film and then use a stencil to cut out your lightning bolt shapes. Return to the freezer while you work on your other flavours.

  12. Once they're all ready, serve with the toppings of your choice!
