Ice Cream Bread

Hold the phone guys- we’re feeling extremely proud of ourselves! Because…. (*drumroll*)… we made bread! We don’t know about you (but we’re feeling 22! No? Taylor Swift? Anyone?) but to us bread is like the holy grail of the baking world. It’s just so impressive- only the pros do it. None of our friends ever make bread. If we ever get homemade bread it’s because someone who’s been baking since before we were were born (hi mom!) made it. We love fresh baked bread, but traditional recipes take much more time and practice than cookies or brownies. Until now.

That’s right folks – we’ve done it again! Yet another two-ingredient recipe made with love straight from us to you. This time instead of pancakes or candy bark, it’s for bread. But not just bread- ice cream bread! We found this super easy two-ingredient bread recipe on Pinterest via Buzzfeed and decided to give it a shot for your reading (and snacking) pleasure! Because surely ice cream and flour doesn’t magically come together to make bread, right? We set out to crack the case…

First grab your ingredients. Only two! You’ll need:

  • 2 cups (1 pint) of regular ice cream (according to the original article you aren’t supposed to used low-fat). We used Dulce de Leche and Strawberry, but you can use any flavor you want.
  • 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour


Leave the ice cream out to soften (about 30-45 minutes). Scoop your flour into a mixing bowl.


Now scoop in your ice cream and mix until it’s well incorporated.


Pour the batter into a greased 8×4 loaf pan.


Bake the batter in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.


That’s it! Just like our other two-ingredient shenanigans, we really liked this super-easy recipe. Surprise: it actually did bake like bread! We must admit- we had our doubts with this one. We thought we would finally get to disprove a shenanigan, but no such luck today. This one is bona-fide and kitchen-worthy.

Keep in mind this is bread though, not cake. It isn’t as sweet as you would imagine having a whole pint of ice cream in there and all. It serves well with Nutella or jelly spread on top as an indulgent breakfast or delicious snack. We particularly recommend the making it with strawberry ice cream- the strawberry chunks throughout the bread made it really stand out.


What favorite ice cream flavor will you try?

    I can’t believe this bread only consists of flour and ice cream! Looks really delicious 🙂

    For those of you who want to try it with regular, all purpose flour, just add 2tsp of baking powder and 1/2 tsp of salt to the flour before mixing it with the ice cream! Self rising flour is not worth the extra money 🙂

    In your intro you talk about the impressiveness of making bread… but quick breads really aren’t impressive/don’t count I don’t think.

      Yeah quick bread is easier than regular bread, but as two girls who have never made any kind of bread from scratch its a big deal to us, haha 😛

    What about using Gluten Free or other types of flour?
