You’ve heard of ice cream cake, but how about ice cream bread?
I am not sure who came up with the idea, but I have seen it all over my social media feeds for quite a while. I told myself that I would have to try it at some point, but really never wanted to sacrifice all that frozen goodness.
Then it happened…my ice cream got left in the Publix bag and never made it to the freezer! My boys unloaded my groceries but a couple of the bags got left in the mudroom, and never made it to the kitchen.
I was bummed when I first found the melted ice cream—then I remembered ice cream bread. Boy, what a happy accident…that ice cream bread was amazing. In fact, my husband said it was better than some of my other bread recipes. That’s a major score as it was so easy to make! Heck, from now on I might just skip the yeast, kneading and rising and whip up ice cream bread instead!
While the oven heats up, take a bread or bundt pan and give it a nice coating with your preferred cooking spray. Set it aside.
Next, take the self-rising flour and mix with the softened ice cream. (If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make a quick and easy substitution using baking powder, salt, and all-purpose flour.)
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. If you’re not sure when it’s done, give it a poke with a toothpick until it comes out clean.
This recipe makes 8 to 10 servings. You can serve it on its own, or dress it up with a scoop of ice cream and some fresh strawberries for garnish.
Made with real Breyers ice cream, this bread is sure to become a family favorite. This recipe below uses the natural strawberry flavor for a light, summery taste, but feel free to experiment with other flavors as desired.
- 3 cups self-rising flour*
- 1.5 quart container of Breyers Strawberry Ice Cream, softened
- Allow the ice cream to soften fully.
- Once the ice cream has softened, preheat the oven to 350º F and spray a bread pan or bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- Add the flour and softened ice cream to a bowl and mix until well combined. If using a stand mixer, mix until combined (do not over mix).
- Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45 - 55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
- Remove the bread from the pan and place on a cooling rack.
- Cool completely then slice and serve.
