  1. Step 1

    Combine the cream, milk and vanilla in a large saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer.
  2. Step 2

    Use an electric mixer to beat egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Gradually stir in cream mixture, in batches, until combined. Pour into a clean saucepan and place over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 10 mins or until custard coats the back of a spoon. Set aside for 10 mins to cool.
  3. Step 3

    Pour into a shallow metal container. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 3 hours or until firm.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, combine the blueberries and extra sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the blueberries release their juices and the mixture thickens slightly. Set aside to cool completely.
  5. Step 5

    Roughly break up ice-cream with a metal spoon. Transfer to a food processor and process until smooth. Return half the ice-cream to the metal container and add half the blueberry mixture. Gently swirl to create a marbled effect. Repeat with remaining ice-cream and blueberry mixture. Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 3 hours or until firm. Serve in waffle cones.
