Trials: Ice Cream Bread (with a bonus)!

I think that by this point, anyone who has facebook has seen those Tasty videos- 2 minutes or less with they speed through the ingredients and steps to make a recipe. I enjoyed them at first; they were easy, basic recipes that didn’t look too difficult. And then they started to get more complicated- 12+ ingredients, numerous steps, hours to prepare. Just too much for me to glean from a two minute video! And then I saw Ice Cream Bread– two ingredients, two steps. That’s what I like to see!!

I decided to use classic vanilla ice cream and flour, no sprinkles or chocolate chips for a first try! So, what is the recipe?

Ice Cream Bread

-2 cups of regular ice cream (not low- or non-fat)
-1 1/2 cups self-rising flour


1.Mix ice cream and flour together. Put in greased and floured pan.
2. Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes.


What did I change?

-*** Here comes the bonus! I didn’t have self-rising flour, so I made my own. I mixed 1 cup flour with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt. (Repeated again in half to make the extra 1/2 cup!) This makes far more sense to me than keeping flour around that I won’t use fast enough anyways 🙂 ***
-I am hesitant with my oven, it is a bit hotter than most. I let it bake for 32 minutes, checked it, and put it back in for an additional 8. So 40 minutes total, and I wouldn’t bake it for much longer.

The verdict?


This is definitely a bread and not a cake, even though it looks like a cake. It actually tastes more like a scone to me than bread or cake! It is a little bland on its own, but I would not be against it with some clotted cream or jam. It is incredibly easy, and I’m impressed with how it turned out! This is a firm recommendation 🙂 I will try with another flavour of ice cream soon and report back!

Have you tried the Ice Cream Bread, or any other Tasty video recipes? How did it turn out?

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
