First thing is first, let’s get it out of the way. This is a recipe for chocolate ice cream bread. Not chocolate ice cream cake.

I’ve had this recipe on my “to make list” for a really long time. I’d tell you how long, but I’m embarrassed to say that I have zero concept of time and what feels like years might only be a few months.

Anyhow, I originally saw it in Taste of Home magazine and in Googling for the recipe, I also found In Katrina’s Kitchen version. I loved her idea of making ice cream bread in a bundt pan instead of a loaf. So much more festive!

So I took the two and made my own version, but without the whole self rising flour. How many people really have self rising flour lying around? Not me!

So this 2 ingrdient ice cream bread turned into a 4 ingrdient cake, not counting icing and sprinkles. Still not bad, comparatively.

If you are like me and need and a substitution for self rising flour here ya go: for every 1 cup all-purpose flour, add 1½ teaspoons baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt. For totals for this recipe, see the notes section.

I really do enjoy ice cream, but as I get older, the darn stuff hurts my teeth. I end up sucking it down, not able to savor it on my tongue before wincing.

With ice cream bread, I get all the flavor and deliciousness of ice cream but with none of the tooth sensitivity.

And who doesn’t love icing and sprinkles??? No one. Well, I suppose some people do, but I don’t trust them. Wink, wink.

So other than top your chocolate ice cream bread with whipped cream and enjoy it plain, you can also do these fabulous things with it:

  1. Make French toast! Add some cocoa to your egg batter and fry it up for breakfast!
  2. Ice Cream Sandwiches- what better to make ice cream sandwiches than ice cream bread?
  3. Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches- Oh yes. Chocolate ice cream bread slathered with peanut butter and raspberry jelly. Pure heaven.

Sounds yummy, I’ll try it for Father’s Day. Hubs loves chocolate ice cream. He also has trouble with cold things hurting his teeth. He has started using Sensodyne tooth paste and it has really helped. Don’t know if I can use name brand items but if not just look in the tooth paste aisle for sensitive teeth at a drug store. He is gonna love this cake! Dee

    Hi Diann! Let me know what you think. Just remember it is much more of a bread than cake, so it isn’t terribly sweet (hence the frosting) however, I prefer it that way. I’ll give that toothpaste a try. Thank you for the suggestion!

Samantha @ Cookware Junkies

Fabulous! A perfect recipe for this summer. Really a Inspired Stuff – Thanks!

Linda

This sounds like so much fun. My granddaughter will have so much fun making this! Thanks for sharing. And I agree, the Bundt pan is the way to go.

Wishes for tasty dishes,
Linda
