Let’s Make Some Ice Cream Bread

Have you made Ice Cream Bread? A new recipe at our house! It is unlike other bread you have made, but it is so easy to make and you can use so many kinds of ice cream.  After you bake it top it with a vanilla icing and lots of sprinkles!
I love how It is so easy to switch up the flavor of this ice cream bread. I have added some examples below.
You will only need SIX INGREDIENTS…all ingredients you probably have at home! If you love easy recipes, (we all do) you’ll love this one!
A favorite way to serve this is to top it with a scoop of ice cream for a delicious dessert.
Remove Ice cream from the freezer and let warm up to very soft serve consistency. It is VERY important that you allow it to melt to a soft serve consistency before you use it
If you don’t have self-rising flour you can just add 1 tablespoon baking powder to the all purpose flour and then follow the rest of the baking directions.
Double Chocolate Ice Cream Bread….Use chocolate ice cream and mix chocolate chips into the batter and top with mini chocolate chips before baking.
Strawberries and Cream Ice Cream Bread…. Use strawberry ice cream and top with white chocolate chips before baking.
Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bread….Use cookies and cream ice cream, then add 10-15 chopped Oreo cookies.
Sometimes you might need a dessert but don't have all the ingredients this bread everyone will love.
You should make some this week. I am!
