This quick and easy ice cream bread recipe is sure to please all types of palettes.  Children will love that it’s made with the sweet treat and adults will want to try it for themselves just as much as the kids.  Most breads are time and labor intensive projects that require exact measurements, kneading, rising, resting, and so on.  This bread is not like those other kinds, instead it is simple to make and requires little time on your part.  Plus, if you have an old carton of ice cream laying in your freezer that didn’t live up to your taste-buds expectations, you can use it up here instead of letting it go to waste.

 Start by taking the ice cream out of the freezer beforehand so that it thaws to a smooth, creamy consistency.  You will need 2 cups of ice cream and can use any flavor you desire.  The video below shows cookies n’ cream and according to the discussion this is an excellent, well-liked choice.

Place the thawed ice cream in a bowl and add 1 ½ cups of self-rising flour as well as any extras, like chocolate chips or nuts, that you’d like. You can get as creative and fun as you’d like, maybe add sprinkles to the batter to make it pop with color, or swirl in chocolate sauce to marbleize it.  If you don’t have self-rising flour simply add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder to the regular flour.

Mix it all up and pour it into a bread tin.  Heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 40-45 minutes.  When it is done and cooled off serve it with fresh fruit, or warm it up and drizzle on chocolate sauce, caramel, or even a scoop of ice cream- anything will compliment this sweet bread!
