vanilla ice cream with honey roasted figs

I’ve made a lot of vanilla ice cream recipes in my day – probably because its my all-time favourite flavour, but  I think I’m settling on this recipe as my best ever. I quite enjoy it made with a cooked custard base which is a far more laborious process, but have always preferred the freshness of a recipe made with uncooked eggs. Perhaps because its more creamy and less ‘eggy’, I love the simplicity and easiness of making it too.
