Makes One 8 x 4 loaf

Ingredients:
2 Cups Ice Cream, any flavor, softened
1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour

2. In a medium bowl mix the ice cream and flour together until just combined.
3. Scoop into the loaf and smooth out.

5. Remove from the pan and allow to cool.

For best results..use full fat ice-cream!

The picture is an example of butter-pecan ice cream – I like the nuts being distributed in the bread mixture, however you can use any ice cream flavor you prefer. Always a fun experiment, and you can’t get simpler than this.

For those that are scratching their heads wondering how this could work – let’s consider that most ice cream is made of eggs and fat/dairy. Toss in some self-rising flour and you have some basic ingredients for a bake-capable product. Just choose the flavoring of ice cream that seems promising and have a fun weekend of experimentation.

Oh, one more thing – others asked about the self-rising flour (if they didn’t have it, could they simply use regular flour).

You must – MUST have a rising agent in the flour. Self-rising flour is an easy solution (and commonly available). However, if you don’t have self-rising flour accessible, you can make it very simply:
For every cup of flour add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt (sift together).

There you go, now you have self-rising flour.
