Ice Cream Bread


When I think of fun ideas to do with my grandchildren, this is one of them.  They are always so surprised to take 2 ingredients and turn it into something like flavored bread.  This recipe is included in the book   Southern Living 1,001 Ways to Cook Southern: The Ultimate Treasury of Southern Classics .  I was fortunate to find a used copy of it at Amazon for a fair price.  It has turned out to be one of my favorite cook books.

This recipe is so easy I can’t believe it.  Ice cream only slightly flavors the bread, but the excitement for the kids when it is done is a good feeling.  Hope you try it.


The recipe calls for self rising flour.  I don’t like to keep a lot of different flours in my kitchen as it takes too long to use them up.  And, if you have ever experienced bugs in your flour, you will know what I mean.  It is easy enough to make your own self-rising flour with this recipe:

1 cup all purpose flour 
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt


I will usually make about 2 cups at a time if I am only going to need 1 cup.


Back to the Ice Cream Bread


1  8×4 loaf pan sprayed and floured or lined with parchment paper

preheat oven to 350 degrees

2 scoops any flavor softened  ice cream

1 1/2 cups self rising flour


Mix the flour and softened ice cream until combined

Scoop into the pan and smooth out

Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs

Let cool and enjoy

This is NOT meant to be anything but tasteful, so don’t even try using anything except full fat ice cream!




  1. I just made this and I can’t believe it. Its wonderful. I was really skeptical but now its going into my family memory cookbook.
