Have you seen the fun and often times colorful ICE CREAM BREAD recipe that has been popping up all over social media this year? Not only is it a tasty treat, but it’s also incredibly simply to make with just 2 ingredients (plus some sprinkles).

Ice Cream Bread HERO

In this house, we are fans of pretty much everything ice cream. A few years ago, we toured the Ben and Jerry’s factory and that was so much fun! I like ice cream a lot, but Bob and the kids are borderline obsessed with it.

We have seen this illusive “ice cream bread” making it’s rounds on social media and decided to give it a try.

Much to our surprise, it turned out very good! It is so easy to make and the ingredient list is minimal.

Try other variations: You can feel free to play around with this bread and add other mix-ins such as chocolate chips, nuts, fruit slices, etc. Anything that’s not liquid-based should work well. You can pair the ice cream flavor to the mix-in (for example strawberry ice cream and add fresh strawberry slices).

Words of warning:

  • Make SURE you use self-rising flour. This is essential.
  • ONLY use full-fat ice cream. The fat and sugar are necessary for the bread’s consistency and sweetness.
  • Do NOT over mix!
  • Use naturally melted (ie leave it out on the counter) ice cream instead of microwaving it.
