What do you get when you combine two pints of ice cream with three cups of flour? Bread! That’s right, you read correctly. I have stumbled upon something that will blow your mind. A recipe for bread, that only contains two ingredients. I found this recipe when I was perusing Pinterest for baking inspiration.
I was visiting Matt when I stumbled upon this recipe. Since he doesn’t have quite the stockpile of baking ingredients as I do in his kitchen, I’m always looking for an easy recipe that I can make at his house. Enter the idea of two-ingredient bread which gives a totally new meaning to the concept “quick bread”.
Now, before I go any further, it’s time for some real talk. Although this recipe blew my mind with the awesome idea of only two ingredients, I found it a little bit lacking. The texture seemed a little off, almost like it wasn’t quite moist enough. However, considering the fact that you only need two ingredients, I would recommend this for anyone that was looking for a creative project in the kitchen. I would suggest adding a chocolate ganache topping to the bread to give it some additional flavor and moisture.
Chunky Monkey Ice Cream Bread Recipe
2 pints Chunky Monkey ice cream, softened
3 cups self-rising flour
1 very ripe banana
1 chocolate bar, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour bread pan. Mix melted ice cream and flour until well combined. Add optional mix-ins. Pour into prepared bread pan. Bake for approximately 75 minutes, check for doneness after 60 minutes. If the top starts to brown too much, cover it with aluminum foil and continue to bake. Bread is done when a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
