Ice Cream Bread

The web, mostly Facebook, has been full of this recipe the past week or two, thought I would give it a try.

-Here’s Your 2 ingredients- 

*2 cups vanilla ice cream, softened, I let it set out until I could work it easily.

* 1-1/2 cups self rising flour (or 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour plus 2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt, which makes self rising flour, or pretty darn close)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.  Use an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan and spray  ‘ er up with baking spray.

2. In a big ol’ bowl, stir ice cream until smooth; mix in flour, not too much, just a little stir. Ladle into the sprayed up pan.  Bake 45minutes, check with the old toothpick trick, stick it in the middle and when it comes out clean-wala- cake is done, could take a minute or two or three more.

3. Cool a little while, I don’t know how long, just some, dump cake out, might take a bit of knife work around the edges. Eat is right away, it is really good warm.

4. You can add in fruit or even vegetables, if you are nuts, or add nuts, might take a might longer to bake depending on how much you put in.

My observations, this is a very palatable cake, moist with good flavor, not one of my all time favorites, but pretty good, fun and easy. Good one to make with the grand kids. Now if someone could just come up with a delicious, two ingredient apple pie.
