  • Spread the batter evenly into a greased and lined 9x5-inch / 23 x 13 cm loaf pan SEE NOTE 3

  1. Do not use the ice cream while it is frozen. Allow it to soften for about 15 minutes before adding the flour. This makes it easier to combine and overmixing is avoided. You want the ice cream to be cold but soft, so don't microwave it as it will be warm.
  2. It is important to use self-raising flour in this recipe to ensure that the bread rises. If you do not have self-raising flour, then just make your own. To make self-raising flour for this recipe, add 2 teaspoons of baking powder and a ½ teaspoon of salt to 1½ cups ( 187g) of all-purpose /cake flour. Whisk the baking powder and salt to distribute evenly through the flour.
  3. Use any shape baking pan you prefer and bake accordingly. For instance, if you are going to use a muffin tin, then just bake for between 12 to 15 minutes.
