I had heard a strange thing a little while ago. I had heard you can make bread out of ice cream. Oh, come on. Really? Is it possible to make a bread with so few ingredients and one of them is ice cream?
Oh, yes, it is possible.
I made this apple ice cream bread on a whim one night when I found out we actually had a little bit of ice cream left in the freezer.
Such a shocker.
Ice cream is usually something that doesn’t last long at our house. I don’t know about your family, but 1.5 quarts doesn’t last us a long time. Maybe 1 1/2 days is all. To have a little bit of ice cream left (two cups to be exact) is something of a rarity.
This apple ice cream bread is very easy to make. It only takes a few ingredients. Actually, if you have self rising flour, it takes two less ingredients than what I had used. I don’t have self rising flour sitting around my house. I would use it so little, I wouldn’t want to have it go to waste. To make up for that, I used baking powder and a little bit of salt. Worked well.
I also know this ice cream bread recipe would be great with blueberries or even cherries. I can’t wait to try different varieties. Serve this bread with supper. It has a sweet flavor and is a great, quick addition to your meal.
