Growing up, I always wished my mom would let my sister and I eat ice cream for breakfast while watching Saturday morning cartoons. Sadly, it never happened and I have a sneaking suspicion it’s because she had no idea there was actually a day dedicated to celebrating eating ice cream for breakfast. As a mom, I am bound and determined to bring the fun into my house and celebrate this very important day. We’ll be hanging in our jammies and cuddling up on the couch while eating ice cream for breakfast in a fun and creative way. I will definitely hit “cool mom” status when they wake up on February 6 to ice cream for breakfast.
Although, this year, they’ll never guess they are actually eating ice cream for breakfast. Our partners over at Hudsonville Ice Cream came out with their most recent Limited Edition flavors, Cinnamon French Toast and Malted Milk Ball. When we saw that, we knew we needed to throw it back with one of our favorite cereals, Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We decided to try out a delicious two-ingredient ice cream bread. Yes, you read that right…TWO ingredients!
Two-ingredient ice cream bread is easy peasy and can be done with any Hudsonville Ice Cream flavor. We chose Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Cinnamon French Toast ice cream so that we could sprinkle Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal on top.
Two-Ingredient Cinnamon French Toast Ice Cream Bread
Serving size: 1 Loaf
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40-45 minutes
- 2 cups softened, full-fat ice cream (we used Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Cinnamon French Toast)
- 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
- 1/2 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal to sprinkle on the top (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the loaf pan or pan of choice. You can use a cake pan, or if you feel like getting creative, bring out the bundt pan.
- Mix the ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl or use your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
- Add the batter to the prepared loaf pan and, if desired, sprinkle Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal over the top of the bread.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Make sure you use full-fat ice cream.
- Self-rising flour is key. If you don’t have self-rising flour on hand, you can combine the following ingredients to create your own: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, and 3/4 teaspoon salt.
This bread will blow your mind! I bet you’re wondering how these two ingredients make bread. It’s simple—all of the ingredients in ice cream combined with the self-rising flour are ingredients that are added into bread. The best part is that you can choose any ice cream you want as long as it’s full-fat.
Now that we’ve gotten the kids taken care of, let’s make something for mom and dad. We should be able to celebrate National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, too! We took Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Malted Milk Ball ice cream and made Affogato. Affogato is a dessert made with two main ingredients: ice cream and espresso. It’s like an iced latte taken to an entirely different level.
Serving size: 2
Prep Time: 10 mins (however long your coffee takes to brew)
- 2 shots Espresso or 8 oz freshly brewed coffee, separated
- 2 scoops (or 1/2 cup) Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Malted Milk Ball ice cream
- Scoop 1/4 cup of Hudsonville’s Limited Edition Malted Milk Ball ice cream into a large coffee cup or ice cream bowl.
- Pour 4 oz freshly brewed coffee or 1 shot espresso over the ice cream.
- Enjoy your very own morning ice cream treat with a spoon or sip.
We can’t wait to settle in with the family on National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day! Cue up the cartoons, keep your cozy pajamas on, and gather the kids for a really special breakfast treat. We promise—the nostalgic, sweet moments will create memories that last a lifetime.
