If baking scares you, then the thought of making your own bread is positively terrifying. Let the dough rise in a warm place, free from drafts... What does that even mean?! Fear no more, my friends. This 2-ingredient bread recipe from Southern Living is here to save the day.


So, are you dying to know what the secret ingredient is? Ice cream. Yep, you heard right. Ice cream. Turns out your favorite summer dessert serves as the fat, sugar, and tenderizer in this super simple recipe. All you need is a pint of ice cream (use full-fat for best results) and 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour to make moist, sweet bread any time of day. MIND. BLOWN.



If you don't believe me, here's our how-to video for proof. You don't even have to let the bread rise since you are using self-rising flour, so making your own Ice Cream Bread is as simple as combining the ingredients and baking for 40-45 minutes. You can even experiment with any flavor of ice cream you like! Y'all, I can't make this stuff up. Raspberry ripple bread? Rocky road bread? The possibilities are endless.

One final note: I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream Bread!
