Since I had nothing else to do after getting my carpet cleaned…
“it will take three hours”
…and please leave those noisy “fans going for 24-hours”
…oh, and "try not to walk on it."
Huh? How am I supposed to do that?
The hallway to my bathroom is carpeted and my sewing machine is calling me!
As I was saying before I rambled on, since I had nothing else to do after getting my carpet cleaned AND my refrigerator repaired…$$$$....I decided to make Ice Cream Bread.
Yes, I said, ICE CREAM BREAD!
I love ice cream and I love bread...works for me!
I saw a post on my sister’s Facebook page about Ice Cream Bread and because I was trapped in my kitchen (with no carpeting) it seemed logical to try making this strange combination of ingredients. It seemed simple enough, but would it taste good?
Start with 2 cups of your favorite ice cream (use the ice cream with fat not the yogurt or nonfat kind.) Melt/soften that ice cream until it is soupy so that you can easily stir it (if it isn't melted enough, it is REALLY hard to stir.) Add 1½ cups of self-rising flour (not regular flour.) Stir them until they are just barely mixed together.
Once you stir the ice cream and self-rising flour together you can add extra ingredients like banana, chocolate chips, or anything that would mix with your favorite ice cream and make your Ice Cream Bread just a little more yummy. I added half a banana.
Shovel the mixture (it’s really thick) into a small greased loaf pan (about 4" x 8".)
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a
toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
My thoughts on this thing called ICE CREAM BREAD:
- It was easy to make
- The texture was really good
- It looked pretty
- It was moist
- It smelled yummy
- It needed chocolate chips or something else to add more flavor
- Maybe a little vanilla or sugar would help?
- It wasn't very sweet, which can be a good thing for some people
- Banana in it was good, but I would use a whole one instead of a half
- Maybe a different flavor of ice cream would make it taste better
Have you ever made Ice Cream Bread?
