When I first saw this title in Carol’s No Reason Needed blog, I was wondering if its was an ice cream or a bread from ice cream or a pseudo name for some dish. On reading the recipe, I was surprised to see how simple it was and even more amazed when I saw the number of ingredients- just 2. Yes, you read it right, only TWO ingredients to make this yummy bread.
This was the one I tried for Taste and Create, a monthly event started by Nicole of ‘For The Love Of Food’ now carried on by Min of ‘Bad Girl’s Kitchen’.
The original recipe asked for 2 cups of ice cream.I had 3- 40 grams cups which I thought would be enough, but actually it wasn’t. I should have done the math,right. Anyways, since I did not get a batter consistency, I added about 1/4 cup milk to get the desired consistency.
Carol had mentioned in her post that Chocolate or strawberry ice ream would taste better than Vanilla ice cream, I chose Strawberry and the batter was a perfect pink which tempted me to throw in some chocolate chips on top before baking.
I used :
Original recipe : No Reason Needed
Self Raising Flour – 1 1/2 cups
Strawberry Ice cream – 1 3/4 cup [ Original recipe asks for 2 cups but since I had 1 3/4 cups only, I added milk]
Milk 1/4 cup
- Mix all the ingredients and transfer to a greased baking tray.
- Bake in a pre heated oven @ 180 Degrees Celsius [or 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes [ the original recipe mentions 40 minutes] or till a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
- Cut into slices and serve
The cake was not very moist and it wasn’t sweet either. Maybe it was because I did not add the right quantity of ice cream. The sweetness was okay for me but Lil Angel felt it could be sweeter.
I will be baking this again with another ice cream flavor. But before I do I will make sure that I get
all both the ingredients in the right measurement before popping it into the oven.Also I will be adding nuts and choco chips for sure…
