Ice Cream Bread
You need ice cream that is not sugar free or low fat...just regular full fat ice cream. This one (the top picture) is made with just chocolate but just imagine how awesome a loaf of Ben and Jerry's Rocky Road or Cherry Garcia bread could be. I have made it with Chunky Monkey and it is delicious. I will include that recipe too so you can try it. Go with bold flavors of ice cream such as peanut butter or butter pecan.(I went with Chocolate Chunk) Don’t forget, you can also add extra ingredients into the mix to make it less plain and more flavorful. Experiment and have fun with it!
1 pint (2 cups) ice cream, softened $
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour $
Stir together ice cream and flour, stirring just until flour is moistened. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 8- x 4-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean. Remove from pan, and cool on a wire rack.
Note: Batter may also be divided evenly between 2 greased and floured 5- x 3-inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center of bread comes out clean.
I do suggest experimenting. The bread that I made even with the Chocolate Chunk was not as chocolaty as I would have liked. My husband liked it, but I also thought it was kind of dry. If you try and experiment and come up with something out of this world, I'd love to hear about it.
Beginning next Monday, I will have a new name for my blog. As it grows and develops and changes, the current name Teeny Tots Treasures does not pertain. It leans more toward being the grandmother that I am. I asked my family to come up with name possibilities and I got great ones. But the one that I'm going to go with is Gammy's Corner. The reason this so great is because, before my breast cancer, I bred Cocker Spaniels. My website was called Cocker Spaniel Corner. My husband and I are known as Gammy and Dach (Dak) These are shortened versions of Grandmother and Grandfather in Welsh. My husband is only the 4th generation to live in the United States. I believe that his family comes from Cardigan, Wales and their name is Davies there, instead of Davis.
I would also like to share that my sister and her husband who are older than the average adoptive parent, have adopted 3 special needs children. Savannah came from Viet Nam and had a heart murmur. She was one when she came to us. She is now 5 and in kindergarten. Christian is an African-American child who's mother abused drugs and alcohol. I believe that he was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. He is legally blind. He is also 5. Their youngest adoptive child, Marlee, has tubular sclerosis. Between them they also have 4 grown biological children and one grandchild. I don't know where she finds the energy to take on what she and her husband has taken on and I'm so proud of them. Her husband has written a book about their process of adopting. If you are considering adopting or know someone who is, please consider a special needs child. They need love and a forever home too. The link will take you to his book.
Thank you for letting me share and enjoy.
