Ice Cream Bread

Monday, February 29, 2016

More and more I am seeing food videos pop up in my Facebook feed.  I'm sure you know the ones I am talking about: they're quick, look so easy, and of course, delicious.  I usually save them only to be added to the long list of recipes and links in my Facebook folder that I never really look at again.  Well, I came across this one and it stuck in my head, one, because it is a dessert, and two, because it only has two main ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen.  I had to finally try one of these video recipes to se if the are indeed that simple and "Tasty".

Ice Cream Bread 



Ingredients:
  • 1 Pint ice cream (any flavor, but I used plain old vanilla
  • 1 1/4 Cup self-rising flour
  • Optional: mix-ins (I used sprinkles and chocolate chips)


Directions:
  1. Allow ice cream to melt in your mixing bowl.  Once melted, slowly add in flour and mix until well blended. 
  2. Mix in sprinkles, chocolate chips, etc. 
  3. Line a bread tin with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray.  
  4. Spoon bread mix into pan evenly.  
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 34-40 minutes.
  6. Let cool and enjoy with a scoop of ice cream!


Simple enough, right? I really liked this dessert, but more so when served with ice cream.  Keep in mind that this is a BREAD recipe, not a cake recipe.  Ice Cream Bread is only mildly sweet and is sort of dense.  When you serve it with ice cream it makes it sweeter and a little more moist.


This is a perfect recipe to get the kiddos involved in.  I had Henley add in the sprinkles and chocolate chips, and I would be lying if I said she didn't dip her fingers in the melted ice cream multiple times!  We had a great time making this and I am looking forward to trying another version of my own, so stay tuned!
