People that are really into baking like to put the time into all the preparation and waiting that breads take to make. For the rest of us, there is an easier, softer way to make delicious dessert bread that does not take a lot of time or a lot of culinary expertise.
The best thing about this recipe is that is simple. You need ice cream and self-rising flour. You can use any kind of ice cream. The ice cream adds flavor and fruit. The ice cream provides the necessary liquid and enzymes to make the self-rising flour work.
This list of ingredients is:
2 cups of ice cream,
1 and ½ cups self-rising flour.
Additional ingredients can be fruit, nuts, chocolate pieces, crushed candy bar pieces, marshmallows, dried fruit, or just about anything you might add to ice cream served cold.
You can use regular flour and add one and one-half teaspoons of baking powder to the flour. Blend the flour and baking powder well before using.
Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it thaw so that it is creamy and easy to spread with a spoon.
Put the ice cream in a bowl and add the flour. Add the extra ingredients and mix thoroughly. You want the added bits to be as evenly mixed into the ice cream and flour mixture as possible.
Spoon the mixture into a bread pan that is made for making loaves of bread. These are called loaf pans.
Cover the bottom of the pan evenly so the bread will bake evenly and the loaf will come out looking like a loaf. Smooth the top of the ice cream and flour mixture with a spatula or a spoon.
Put the pan in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the loaf from the pan to cool.
