The ingredients for Ice Cream Bread could very well be the shortest list of ingredients for homemade bread that you may ever see! To bake up a loaf all you need is:
- Ice Cream – For best results, choose full-fat ice cream and be sure to avoid sugar-free or reduced-sugar ice creams.
- Self-Rising Flour – This flour is made with baking powder and salt making it the leavening agent we need for this bread to rise while it bakes.
- Sprinkles – Rainbow sprinkles for the funfetti appearance!
I love how easy it is to switch up the flavor of this ice cream bread just by swapping around ice cream flavors! For example, for chocolate ice cream bread just grab your favorite chocolate ice cream and even add in some chocolate chips to the batter!
You can really have a lot of fun with this recipe just by mixing up which flavor of ice cream you use!
How To Make Funfetti Ice Cream Bread

- Fold in the sprinkles and pour the batter into a greased baking pan.
- Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Make sure to use softened and not melted ice cream in this recipe. I find that softened yields better texture than melted when it comes to ice cream bread recipes.
