Make sure when you return the mixture to the heat you do not want it to boil otherwise it will cook the eggs and will turn out lumpy.
it is best to leave the ice-cream mix in the ice-cream machine for half an hour, just check the machine incase the mix freezes too quickly, it may damage the machine.
