Ice Cream Bread

I was casually, innocently perusing facebook a few months ago.  I was just checking in on my friends and family, not expecting to find ONE OF THE BEST BREAD RECIPES EVER!!

Phew.  Sorry about the screaming.  Thanks to my “cousin” Julie Long for this amazing idea!  When I tried to go back to her page and find it, I was not successful so I found it online at this link:  http://www.thehungryhousewife.com/2011/03/ice-cream-bread.html

Incredibly easy.

Amazingly delicious.

Abundantly flavorful.

Endless possibilities.

Enough superlatives for you?

I used Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns (hehe…buns).  The results are better if you use a “full fat” ice cream.  I also didn’t let my ice cream soften enough, as can be seen in the above picture where flour is ev-ery-wh-ere. Oops.  I also added a sprinkling of brown sugar to the top before I baked it…just in case the bread wasn’t sweet enough.  It was sweet enough…mmmmmm.   I know Julie added some colorful sprinkles to her ~ so be creative and have fun!  After all, what fun-ner food is there than Ice Cream?!
