Melted Ice Cream Bread
Melted Ice Cream Bread is made by melting premium ice cream and mixing it with self-rising flour (or a mixture of flour, baking powder and salt), adding chocolate chips or fruit and baking it. It's similar to a pound cake, but not quite as sweet, so make sure to sprinkle with sugar or add lots of chocolate chips.
- 1 1/2 cups 6.8 oz all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups 12 oz melted premium ice cream**
- 1 cup chocolate chips or other add-in
- Sparkling Sugar or Cinnamon Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, thoroughly mix together the flour, baking powder and salt.
Weigh your melted ice cream to make sure you have 12 oz by weight.
Pour the ice cream over the dry ingredients and stir with a heavy duty scraper until mixed. Do not over beat, just stir thoroughly.
Fold in the chocolate chips or whatever add-ins you like.
Scrape the thick batter into the pan and sprinkle top generously with sugar.
Bake for 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool completely before serving.
Since I’d already eaten some of my ice cream, I went with the 1 ½ cups/8x4 inch version of the recipe. If you only have a 9x5 inch loaf pan, you should increase the recipe by 1/3 (2 cups ice cream 2 cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt, etc.).
And make sure to either weigh your flour or measure using a gentle hand.
