Ladies and gentlemen, I’ve baked bread using… (*drumroll*)… just two ingredients! Break out the trumpets!

No kneading needed whatsoever, and no waiting for with bated breath for the thing to rise – time to break into a jig!

It should be called ‘OMG You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me Bread’! Though it’s more scientifically accurate name is Ice Cream Bread. You heard that right. It’s heaven, sent down for lazy bums such as yours truly.

Let me tell you, it’s a great way of winning bets. Picture yourself saying, “I bet you a 1,000 bucks I can bake you amazing bread with ice cream!” Imagine, who’d believe such a wacky proposition?

The recipe sounds totally bonkers, but trust me, it works! No really, go on, place that bet, I’ve got you covered!

Ingredients:

  • Half liter ice cream, softened. (Use your favorite flavor, I used good old vanilla)
  • One and a half cups of self-raising flour. If you don't have self-raising flour, add one and half teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt to the flour

Instructions:

  1. Soften the ice cream in a mixing bowl and stir with a spoon
  2. Add self-raising flour till mixture begins to moisten. DO NOT OVER MIX or mixture will harden!
  3. Spread mixture in a loaf tin lined with parchment paper
  4. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 50-60 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean)
