Ice Cream Bread!...

Yes, Ice Cream Bread.  Let me say that again, bread made with ice cream! This has to be the best idea for bread ever. AND, as if that isn't enough, to make it you only need TWO ingredients - ice cream and self-rising flour.  You can use any flavor ice cream you want so the bread flavors are endless.  This makes one 4" by 8" loaf.

  •  2 cups full fat ice cream (the bolder the flavor the tastier the bread)
  •  1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  1. Let your ice cream sit out until it is fully softened or put it into the refrigerator over night to soften.
  2. Completely mix the softened ice cream with the self-rising flour.
  3. Put the mixture on a greased loaf pan.
  4. Have a grown-up put the pan into a preheated 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick in the bread comes out clean.
Even though the bread tastes delicious as it is, you can top your bread with sprinkles or chocolate chips before you bake it to make it fancier and give it extra taste.

The bread tastes great with a little butter spread on it especially when the bread is still warm.

NOTE:  Kroger sometimes has 16 ounce (2 cup) ice cream containers on sale for $1.00.  This can make it a pretty inexpensive treat.

These are the only ingredients needed to make ice cream bread.  This time I decided to make strawberry ice cream bread.

Measure 2 1/2 cups self rising flour...

...and pour it into a mixing bowl.

Measure 2 cups of ice cream...

...and put the ice cream in the mixing bowl with the self rising flour.

Then mix the ingredients together real well.  The dough mix will get very thick so you might need some help getting it all mixed together.

Put the dough mix into the greased 8" by 4" bread pan and bake it for 35 - 40 minutes.

And the best part of baking the ice cream bread is eating it.  A special fun thing of eating ice cream bread is that while other people have to eat their ice cream with a spoon, I get to eat my ice cream with my hands!  You can even spread butter or jelly or other topping for fun - remember, it is a bread.
