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 all-purpose flour (190 grams)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups 12 oz melted premium ice cream** (336 grams)
  • 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.
