Ice Cream Bread

Last night I was sitting on the couch when my friend Lisa posted a picture of a bread she made and said if you'd never heard of ice cream bread to immediately google it. Well, those are directions I can handle... so I immediately googled and was drooling. Bread... made out of ICE CREAM. My mind was blown. BLOWN. I was just about to play a game with John and I made him wait while I ran to the kitchen to start this bread. I couldn't wait to make it, then once I made it I couldn't wait to taste it, and once I tasted it I couldn't wait to share it with you! Typically when you see a recipe on this blog it's something I made weeks ago in my kitchen... but not this bread. No, this had to be shared the next day.

It tastes like the most amazing muffin you've ever eaten. I made a small batch- three mini loafs- but never again will I make such a small batch. The recipe I'm posting below is for a larger batch, big enough for a loaf pan. I used vanilla because that's what I had but you could use any flavor! You could mix in anything- Oreos, chocolate chips (my choice), bananas, blueberries, peanut butter chips, etc. Just go make this- now. It's to die for.

2 cups softened ice cream (I used vanilla)
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Mix ins of your choice, optional (chocolate chips, sprinkles, fruit, crushed Oreos, etc.)

1- Preheat the oven to 350. Grease a loaf pan.
2- In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir well. Add the ice cream and mix well until a dough forms.
3- Gently fold in mix ins.
4- Transfer to greased loaf pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5- Cool completely, then remove from the pan.


  1. I'm thinking this is going to be the next big thing, lol!! Like I said last night, I used cookie dough ice cream and added fresh banana and more chocolate chips. It is divine! Next time I make it, I'm going to make minis so I can freeze some and not want to eat it all at once!

  2. You aren't kidding- this looks amazing! Adding vanilla ice cream and chocolate chips to my grocery list… :)

  3. Huh, what an intriguing idea! I want to try it now.

  4. Ah! I missed this when you posted it.. funny bc my brother found the idea somewhere and told me i needed to make it... never got around to it... its on my list... looks yum!
