Ice Cream Bread is possible

Yes, it's true, you can make "bread" from just two ingredients -

2 cups ice-cream (in our case the girls decided that "Hokey Pokey" would be fun to try)
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour

All you do is mix them together.  I would suggest letting the ice-cream melt a bit first.  We did it straight out of the freezer with a wooden spoon and it was pretty hard work.

Then you put it in a suitable baking container (we used silicone cup-cake molds)  in the oven at 180C (350F) and cook until toothpick/skewer comes out clean.  With the mixture split among the 15 cup cake molds this took 13 minutes of cooking time.

Allow to cool and then turn out.

Another easy "kid-friendly" recipe.

Gotta admit that was NOT what I thought you were doing... Had a guy want an ice cream sandwich in Italy, and that was literally what he got! A scoop of Gelato in a hard roll!!! :-)

Orange sherbet makes a wonderful ice cream bread, as does any flavor with little peanut butter cups or other bits and pieces in them.

Great idea to make cupcakes out of them, though!
