Ice Cream Bread

Ice cream gets a whole new use in this tender bread recipe that I pared down to serve two. Be sure to use full-fat ice cream for best results. —Katherine Kuehlman, Denver, Colorado
  • Total Time
    Prep: 5 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    1 loaf (6 slices)


  • 1 cup butter pecan ice cream, softened
  • 3/4 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • In a small bowl, combine the ice cream, flour and sugar. Transfer to a 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
Editor's Note
As a substitute for self-rising flour, place 1 teaspoon baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 3/4 cup.

    I tried it, exactly per the recipe and I will not do it again. It did not rise, at all, and the texture was seriously dry. It was easy but not worth the materials or time. I would never serve it to someone and I will not eat it.

    Delicious. The texture was moist and firm. Will make it again, maybe using vanilla bean ice cream with nuts.

    I learned how to make self-rising flour. Easy, fast, and delicious. Thank you, Katherine, for sharing this recipe.

    I made the Ice Cream Bread exactly as directed. It had a dry texture and hardly any taste. I will not be making this again.

    I will give this one star for ease of making it, but it was terrible. One taste, and the rest went into the garbage.

    Worst recipe I ever tried. Don't waste your ice cream on this tasteless mess.

    Made 2 different kinds. One was Pistachio Honey and the other was Matcha Green Tea. Delicious. I made this recipe with my 5 yr old nephew. So easy and he was so excited to make ice cream bread. Will definitely be making this again, trying out new flavors.

    I was intrigued by this recipe. I made it with Haagen Daaz butter pecan ice cream. We had a slice the day it was made

    Tried this recipe because of the novelty of a 2 ingredient bread. Didn’t hate it, didnt love it. I used butter pecan ice cream, it was very bland and a little dense. Certainly won’t make again.
