To create this delightful bread, you will need:

  • Ice Cream: Choose your favorite full-fat ice cream, ensuring it contains regular sugar. Light or sugar-free options won’t work for this recipe. Soften the ice cream by setting it out ahead of time.

How to Make Ice Cream Bread

Follow these simple steps to create your own mouthwatering Ice Cream Bread:

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and coat a loaf pan with non-stick spray. In a medium bowl with beaters or a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, combine the ice cream and flour until well combined. Fold in the sprinkles.

STEP TWO: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool before applying the icing.

STEP THREE: Prepare the icing by whisking together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Adjust the consistency by adding more milk to thin the icing or more powdered sugar to thicken it. Spread the icing over the cooled bread and top it off with more sprinkles.

Tips for Success

To ensure your Ice Cream Bread turns out perfect every time, keep these tips in mind:

  • Self-rising Flour: This recipe requires self-rising flour, so make sure you have it on hand. If you don’t, you can create your own by combining 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt for every 1 cup of all-purpose flour. For this recipe, you’ll need 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder, and just under 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
  • Softened Ice Cream: Start by adding the softened ice cream to the mixing bowl and mix until no lumps remain. This will make it easier to incorporate the flour and create a lighter bread texture.
  • Get Creative with Toppings: Experiment with different ice cream flavors and toppings to create unique and delicious combinations. From chocolate chips with brownie ice cream to white chocolate with strawberry ice cream, the possibilities are endless. Feel free to add dried fruit or toasted nuts for extra flavor and texture.
  • Storage: Store your Ice Cream Bread in an airtight container in the fridge for up to four days or freeze it for up to three months, ensuring that each slice retains its delightful freshness.


What are the ingredients in Ice Cream Bread?

Ice cream supplies the required milk and sugar to create a deliciously moist and flavorful bread. By simplifying the traditional bread ingredients into these two components, Ice Cream Bread becomes a unique and delightful treat.

What kind of ice cream can I use?

You can use any full-fat and full-sugar ice cream you prefer. Vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry are classic flavors that work beautifully. If you’re feeling adventurous, try fun flavors like Rocky Road, Cherry Garcia, or Moose Tracks. Ice cream variations with added chocolate chunks, fruit, or nuts are also delightful options. Just avoid adding sauce or jam that may introduce excessive moisture to the bread.
