Strawberry Ice Cream Bread

P1050425Well, it was bound to happen, that’s right, I made ‘Strawberry Ice Cream Bread’. One can only bake around with vanilla ice cream or custard for so long before the other flavors become too tempting not to try too.

I had been playing with the idea to use strawberry or chocolate ice cream to make some ice cream bread. I mentioned it to my supportive & wonderful husband and he went out and brought home a gallon of neopolitan ice cream.

P1050416I made a small loaf of strawberry ice cream bread. I’m so amazed how this bread can rise so lovely and come out of the pan without sticking. The strawberry bread has great texture and wonderful taste. I love the pretty color too.

This was such fun to try. Now next up is chocolate. I hope it does as well. I’ll let you know.

Happy creating!

 

*I used a small batter made like my basic ‘Boiled Custard Bread’ recipe.
Use melted ice cream instead of boiled custard.
Add flour a little at a time to the melted ice cream until the batter is a creamy consistency.
If you get the batter too thick, thin it with a little bit of water.

P1010082bThis is a little bunny that hangs out near the garden. It’s growing quite fast. I figure the pin wheels and pie pans are the only things keeping it out of the garden. Thank goodness there’s lots of nice clover and grass in the yard for it to feed on.

P1000985The honeysuckle vines are blooming. The air is very sweet & aromatic right now.

P1010225I saw this pretty little wild strawberry growing in a day-lily. I’ve never eaten a wild strawberry.  I like seeing them and think they’re charming.
P1000574This funny looking orange fuzzy ball growing in a cedar tree is called ‘cedar-apple rust’. It’s a strange part of a disease that requires two hosts, a cedar or juniper tree and an apple tree, for the disease to complete it’s cycle and cause damage. It releases spores that infect apple trees and ruin the crop. Fortunately, we don’t have any apple trees to worry about.

P1010541It’s the sad end of the season for the beautiful peony blooms. They’re on their way to the long winters rest.

P1010568My first squash bloom bud and it’s a female. Hopefully, It won’t be long until we’ll get to try these new variety of squash.
