Chocolate Ice Cream Bread Recipe

Chocolate ice cream bread is one of those irresistible dessert that you have to make and I promise you, it does not disappoint!

Like making biscuits out of soda (yes, it’s a thing) making ice cream bread is as fun as it is unusual. Best of all, it’s tasty. Don’t worry, this is bread, not cake. The chocolate ice cream adds just a touch of sweetness to make things more interesting, but it isn’t predominantly sweet. If you want it sweet, though, you can definitely add more sugar. Some people really like the idea of bread that actually tastes like chocolate ice cream; however, what I enjoy about this recipe is the subtlety in the way the ice cream plays with the other ingredients in the bread.

Bread Like Ice Cream

The amazing thing about this chocolate ice cream bread recipe is that it’s not a complicated recipe. It’s essentially ice cream turned into bread using the most basic ingredients. The result is a delicious sweet bread that actually looks a lot like chocolate ice cream does! It’s dense and dark, and it’s amazing what a tasty transformation it is going from frozen treat to warm squishy bread. The process can take a little over an hour to complete, but it’s also important to begin checking in on the bread as it cooks to make sure it is cooking. Fat content in the ice cream varies and can change the cooking time.

Ice Cream Sandwich

I’m so thrilled with how this recipe looks and takes. I love how simple it is and the fact that ice cream is the main ingredient just makes it so fun. It brings new possibilities to the term ice cream sandwich. In fact, I recommend trying this chocolate ice cream bread with peanut butter and jelly

How To Make The Chocolate Ice Cream Bread

Melt ice cream in a glass bowl in the microwave for 20 seconds. You just want it to be softer. Mix flour, baking soda, and the baking power in a bowl until well combined with a wooden spoon. Mix in ice cream until fully incorporated with the dry ingredients with a spatula or wooden spoon. Pour into a loaf pan with a spatula. I suggest you grease and flour it unless it is non-stick.

Bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Start checking on the loaf around 35 minutes to check on if it is done. You’ll want a toothpick to come out clean in the densest part of the loaf. Let cool and remove from the pan

Recipe Notes

  1. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to remove the lumps when you are mixing the ice cream. You don’t want to overwork the batter when adding the ice cream to the dry mixture and this will result in a dense bread.
  2. If you want additional sweetness add in 2 tbsp of sugar.
  3. Depending on the fat content in your ice cream can make the loaf cook a bit faster, or take a bit longer.
