2¼cupsstrawberry ice creamvery soft but not completely melted
⅓cupsprinklesplus more for optional topping
⅓cupwhite chocolate chips
Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place the very soft ice cream in a large bowl. It should not be completely melted but some of it will be. Stir the ice cream to bring it together. It should be very easy to stir, if it isn’t then it probably isn’t soft enough.
Gently combine the strawberry ice cream and self-rising flour in a medium-sized bowl. Do not over mix or your bread will be tough.
Once the ice cream and flour resembles a shaggy dough (lumpy but fully mixed), fold in the sprinkles and white chocolate chips until just combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Add additional sprinkles to the top, optional.
Bake the bread in the oven for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
Let cool before removing from the pan. Cut and serve.
Storage:To Store: Place in an airtight container on the counter for 3-4 days. To Freeze: You can freeze it in an airtight bag or plastic wrap for up to 6 months.Tips:
Try to soften the ice cream at room temperature and avoid the microwave since it can change the consistency.
Don’t overmix the batter! This is so important! Use a spatula or mixing spoon instead of a hand or stand mixer. If your batter is too overworked, it could turn out a bread that is hard and dense. Use a light hand when mixing. It’s okay if some lumps remain.
Be creative with your add-ins and flavors. You can change so many things to get the perfect product! You can combine different ice creams, sprinkles and baking morsels. So, don’t be afraid to try all your favorite flavors.
