So, last night my wonderful friend Ladonna shared a recipe with me. I looked at it and gave a bit of a chuckle. Y’all, it was for “Ice Cream Bread”. Now I am not talking something like those ice cream cakes you get for kids birthday parties. I am talking about ice cream being one of the ingredients. Oh and did I mention there is only one other ingredient? Self rising flour. You heard correctly. A two ingredient bread. I just knew it had to be a joke. Then I started giving it some thought. What does ice cream have in it? Milk, eggs, sugar and vanilla? Well that sounds like some of the ingredients I would put in breads like my Banana Nut Bread recipe. You know what? I think this might be a real recipe.
So on the way home tonight I stopped by the grocery store and grabbed a half gallon of ice cream. Now I wasn’t going to buy just an ordinary vanilla or chocolate. I wanted to try something with some kick. So as I was looking through the freezer case I came upon Moose Tracks Ice Cream. I thought to myself, well if the bread doesn’t turn out, I can just eat the rest of the ice cream so I might as well get something good.
I didn’t need to eat the ice cream. The bread was great. I will admit that I think it should be a bit sweeter. I will probably add a couple tablespoons of sugar in the next batch I make. But yes, this is an amazingly easy and tasty two ingredient bread. I am sure I’ll be experimenting with many more flavors very soon. So now get your pen and paper and make sure you write down these very important ingredients:
- 2 cups ice cream melted
- 1 1/2 cups “self rising” flour
That’s it. Nothing more.
- Mix the two ingredients together in a large bowl just till they come together. Don’t over mix or you’ll end up with a tough bread.
- Pour in a prepared 4×9 bread pan and smooth the top flat.
- Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Oh….Thanks for the cool recipe Ladonna.
