Rum and Raisin Dessert Recipe

Rum and raisin ice cream is a classic dessert that is easy to make at home. Here is a recipe that yields about 1 quart of ice cream:


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup dark rum


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, milk, sugar, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture begins to steam.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks until they are smooth. Slowly pour in about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture, whisking constantly, to temper the eggs.
  3. Pour the egg yolk mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining cream mixture. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a spoon.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the raisins and rum. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
  5. Once the mixture is cooled, transfer it to an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  6. Once the ice cream is churned, transfer it to a lidded container and freeze until it is firm, about 2-4 hours.
  7. Serve the rum and raisin ice cream in bowls or cones, and enjoy!
