Recipe of the Month – ICE CREAM BREAD – Nov 2014
This recipe comes from another favourite blogger (well, they sort of are all my favourites) NOT QUITE NIGELLA (NQN)
When I saw this recipe I just had to make it… it sounds so wrong, yet so right! It is very easy and you can use any flavour you like, any fruit you like, so it is sort of a anything left over bread!
Here at Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, we like anything that uses up left overs to create something delicious… The problem with this recipe is that I would go and buy the ingredients to make it! 🙂
This is a great way to use up all those small bits of ice-cream in the bottom of the freezer that no one wants because it isn’t enough, or it has gone a bit fridgy or icy. I made this recipe using blue ribbon Mango swirl ice-cream and frozen mixed berries instead of blueberries, because that is what I had. I didn’t even defrost the mixed berries before mixing them through! When you make this recipe (I say when, not if) cut it up into slices, wrap them and put them in the freezer, then when you want a piece, pop it on a sandwich press or in a toaster and you have some deliciousness to eat!
NQN is a wonderful blog, I never quite know what I am going to get every day in my inbox. As I could be taken on a trip to Hong Kong just for a foodie couple of days, or an easy Thai Chicken Burger or an honest review of a myriad of restaurants in and around Sydney as well as around the world! She has even interviewed a few of my foodie idols (Anthony Bourdain in particular). I wonder if I could get her to come to Brisbane for a few reviews? You never know, I could get an invite? (I know I’m very cheeky!) 🙂
Anyway, please click on the link above to take you to the wonderland that is Not Quiet Nigella and have an explore around her fantastic blog. (you will be there for hours) There is something there for everyone!
If you are interested… below is the Thermomix version of NQN’s Ice Cream Bread.
2 cups Ice-Cream (half melted)
240g Self Raising Flour
1/2 cup Blueberries (I used mixed frozen berries)
I also put in 1 teaspoon of baking powder (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
2. Prepare a small loaf tin with baking paper.
3. Place ice-cream, self raising flour and baking powder into the mixing bowl, mix 10 seconds/speed 6, scrape down the bowl and repeat.
4. Add berries and mix 30 seconds/reverse/speed 3.
5. Pour into prepared loaf tin and bake for 45-50 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean! Serve with anything you like! NQN suggests butter and jam, which is very yummy, but have it with what ever takes your fancy! I had mine with Myrtleford Creme’ Fraiche and Home made Rosella Jam.
