Two Ingredient Ice Cream Bread

I prepped this ice cream bread this morning in two minutes. All you need is ice cream and flour and you can make bread! It’s like some kind of crazy magic!

First off, let’s talk about what this bread tastes like. It will, of course, vary based on the flavor of ice cream that you choose. But, I would call it a breakfast bread – falling into the same category as banana bread or zucchini bread.

It’s sweet, but not sweet enough to be called cake. It definitely has more of a bread-like texture.

You can easily replace the 1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour in the recipe with 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour plus 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

You can use any ice cream flavor, but I’ve read that the recipe works best if you use full-fat ice cream. I haven’t personally tested this recipe with light ice cream, but it makes sense that having the fat helps. You need the fat to get the correct texture in the bread.

How to Customize Your Bread

While it’s not at all required, ice cream bread benefits from mix-ins! If your ice cream doesn’t already have mix-ins, you can add any classic ice cream mix-ins (think chocolate chips, chopped Oreos, or dried fruit).

The bread you see here used vanilla ice cream with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of pecans (that I then roughly chopped).

If your ice cream doesn't already have mix-ins or a bold flavor, I suggest adding some. Try vanilla ice cream with 1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of pecans (roughly chopped) or mix in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips!

  1. Soraida Peressays:

    Hi I want to give this recipe a try vanilla ice cream and bananas.
    Will it work or would it make it too moist?

    • Stefsays:

      I think it would be too moist. Maybe instead of mixing it into the batter, you could slice a banana vertically, lay the pieces over the top and sprinkle with some brown sugar or cinnamon sugar.
