The Simplicity Of Ice Cream Bread

Were you one of the people who fell for the bread-making trend during the pandemic? Well, get ready for yet another, but also much easier, bread trend taking over the internet: ice cream bread!

Unlike regular bread that requires five main ingredients and way too much time and care, all you need for ice cream bread is two pints of ice cream and self-rising flour. Don’t have self-rising flour on hand? Don’t you fret because there is a very easy solution. Just take 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 ½ tsp, and ¼ tsp of salt and adjust measurements as needed.

The simplicity of this recipe isn’t even the best part. Because there are a multitude of ice cream flavors, there are hundreds of different ways to make this bread. When I first tried making ice cream bread, I used matcha and vanilla bean flavors. The second time, I used dark chocolate and salted caramel. That’s not even including all of the different mix-ins you can include (sprinkles, chocolate chips, fruit, etc.).

So please try making ice cream bread as soon as you can because you will not regret it. Just be sure to remember these few tips. One, make sure the ice cream is completely melted before mixing. It makes it easier to mix and less likely for clumps to appear. At the same time, don’t over-mix the ice cream and flour. Over-mixing causes the bread to be tough instead of light and fluffy. Also, it’s okay to be hesitant about using a whole pint of ice cream for a loaf of bread. People of course love to eat ice cream on its own, and ice cream bread does tend to be a lighter flavor. However, it’s still okay to try new things. Ice cream bread should be something everyone tries at least once.
