Cover surface of custard with plastic wrap; stand until cold.

If you don't have an ice-cream maker, pour custard mixture into shallow pan, cover with foil and freeze until almost set. Chop ice-cream roughly and beat in large bowl with electric mixer, or process, until smooth. Return to pan and freeze again, repeating process once more. Freeze about 1 hour, then allow to soften slightly; spoon ice-cream into pudding basin (or add additional ingredients) and follow the recipe. It's fine to use three 300ml cartons of pouring cream for this recipe, rather than buying an extra carton for the additional 35ml.
