Ice Cream Bread Is Your Favorite Foodie Invention

If you are of the mindset that ice cream cake is the be-all and end-all of desserts, then it's time you introduce yourself to an extraordinary little concoction the baking masterminds at Cosmopolitan like to call ice cream bread. Made with just two ingredients, it's arguably the easiest and most delicious way to eat ice cream since the ice cream cone. Call me overdramatic, but one look at this recipe will have you nodding your head in agreement. Seriously, it's just that good.

The most brilliant things in life are often the most simple, and this yummy hybrid is no exception. To make ice cream bread, you need self-rising flour, your favorite ice cream — and that's it. If you're feeling really ambitious (you overachiever, you), go ahead and throw in whatever ice cream toppings your little heart desires. Chocolate chips and sprinkles seem like a pretty good bet. Mix it all together, bake in the oven for 45 minutes, and then? Well, you're done. You just made magic happen in under an hour. You are basically a dessert wizard. Your powers are unmatched. You took something perfect (ice cream) and made it even more perfect. You cannot be stopped.

OK, so maybe I'm getting a little overexcited, but once you see this recipe in action, you will understand where all my enthusiasm is coming from. Check out Cosmo's step-by-step video:

When it comes to baking, I've always been a strict believer in the idea that less is more — less work, that is. And this is pretty much a lazy girl's dream come true. Once your ice cream bread is done baking, I suggest topping it off with a scoop of ice cream and more sprinkles. Hey, you can't have too much of a good thing.
