I must insist that you try this Vanilla Ice Cream Bread! Melted ice cream plus a few other ingredients turns into a lightly sweet bread you’ll love!
I only recently learned that ice cream bread existed, and I’m so excited that I tried it! You can make it with any flavor ice cream you’d like, but for my trial run, I chose vanilla. Now, typically, if you ask me to choose between chocolate and vanilla, I’ll give you a blank stare and wonder why that would even be a choice. Chocolate all the way! I did eventually make chocolate ice cream bread, but I thought I would start simple with vanilla and then get funky later. I was kind of skeptical that this would even work and didn’t know how it would taste.
Let me tell you, this bread tastes GREAT! Ice cream bread is very lightly sweet and satisfying. After a piece (or three), I realized that it reminded me of the shortbread my aunt used to make for strawberry shortcake, so I decided that it would be even better topped with sliced strawberries and a scoop of, wait for it… vanilla ice cream! That’s when the magic really happened.
Lightly sweet ice cream bread topped with ripe berries and more vanilla ice cream is such an easy and satisfying summer dessert. I hope you will try it! This recipe is a good one for kids to help with or even make themselves because there’s nothing to it. Soften the ice cream, mix everything together, and bake. (Just make sure kids are safe around the hot oven.) This would also be a fun and unique addition to any bake sale. I’m sure it would sell out because everyone would be dying to try ice cream bread! I’m sure you’ll find lots of perfect occasions for this easy recipe. Be sure to let me know in the comments how you like it. :)
