Strawberry Ice Cream Bread + VIDEO

Ice Cream Bread is so popular we decided to shake things up and make this Strawberry Ice Cream Bread for you. This simple recipe uses only three ingredients to create a delicious dessert quick bread that is moist and bursting with flavor.

I'm getting ready for summertime with some delicious ice cream desserts and I have lots to share with you. This 2-Ingredient Ice Cream Bread Recipe and my No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cake are two of my favorites.

I've made several homemade ice cream recipes so using them in a dessert like this Strawberry Ice Cream Bread couldn't be easier.

You could easily use my Cake Batter Ice Cream or my Triple Berry Sangria Ice Cream in this Strawberry Ice Cream Bread recipe.

Tips for Making this Strawberry Ice Cream Bread

  • It's important to use full-fat ice cream in this recipe. Don't use a low sugar or low-fat ice cream or it just won't come out correctly.
  • You cannot use all-purpose flour in this recipe. You will need to use self-rising flour. It contains traditional all-purpose flour as well as baking powder and salt.
  • You can make your own self rising flour by placing 1 teaspoon of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a measuring cup. Then, fill the cup with all-purpose flour until you have 3/4 cup. 


  • 9x5 bread pan - Remember that dark bread pans and glass bread pans bake hotter. So, if you use one of these, you might want to consider lowering your oven temperature by 25F.
  • Large bowl - This is my favorite!
  • Cooling rack - If you don't have one, your microwave cooling rack will work as a substitution. 
  • Bread knife - You will need a nice, sharp bread knife to cut your Strawberry Ice Cream Bread.

Add-ins for ice cream bread

I've added fresh sliced strawberries to this quick bread. But, you can change up the flavor and add another type of sliced fruit. Why not try sliced peaches or a handful of blueberries or raspberries instead.

And, you can always add in a handful of chocolate chips or your favorite chopped nut to this Strawberry Ice Cream Bread recipe.

Making Strawberry ice cream bread

So, how do you use ice cream in bread?  You won't believe how simple it is to make this recipe. Just preheat the oven.

And, while it's heating up mix the softened strawberry ice cream, the sliced strawberries, and the self-rising flour. Don't over mix it. Stir it until it is combined.

Then, pour it into your bread pan. Smooth the top of the batter with a spatula. Bake it and let it cool. Remove it from the bread pan and serve it.

If you want to make this 3-ingredient quick bread even easier, you can leave out the sliced strawberries. You'd just mix the softened strawberry ice cream with the self-rising flour.

You won't have quite as many chunks of strawberries in your bread, but it will still be delicious.

What can I put on top?

You can make a glaze to put on top of this quick bread recipe or you can top it with your favorite sprinkles. You could even make a cream cheese frosting if you wanted to. Or, it's delicious eaten plain.

Storing ice cream bread

If you don't finish all of this ice cream bread in one sitting, it can be stored in the refrigerator. Just wrap the quick bread in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

Then, store it in the refrigerator for three to five days.

You can also freeze this for longer storage. Slice the quick bread into even slices and freeze each slice in a freezer bag.

This way, you can remove one piece at a time when you want a snack. If you'd prefer to freeze the entire loaf, you will need to slice it and separate each slice with freezer paper so that they don't stick together. It can be frozen for up to six months.
