• 450g self-raising flour
  • 750 ml ice-cream (any flavour)
  • 625 ml fresh milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder

Did you know that you can make bread with just 4 ingredients and yeast is not one of them? Well yes you can, I just did! If you’re looking for a hassle free way of making bread then this is it! You can use any ice-cream flavour you want. For this one I used Caramel and we enjoyed it. Store this in an airtight container for not more than 48 hrs.

Resources/Equipment You Will Need

Quick Instructions

  1. Get your ingredients ready (450g self-raising flour; 750 ml ice-cream (any flavour); 625 ml fresh milk and 1 tsp baking powder). Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 5.
  2. Sift flour and baking powder into the mixing bowl. Mix using a whisk and make a well in the middle. We are using a whisk so we can evenly incorporate the baking powder into the flour as well as introduce more air which will help produce a soft textured bread.
  3. Add the ice-cream and milk.
  4. Stir with your wooden spoon until a smooth sticky dough forms. Allow dough to rest for 10 min so that any air bubbles formed during mixing burst.
  5. As the dough is resting, get your loaf tin ready.
  6. Grease and line it with grease proof paper and grease the paper as well!
  7. Put the dough into the prepared cake tin and evenly spread it across.
  8. Bake in preheat oven for 1 hr or until skewer inserted comes out clean.


Pictorial Detailed Instructions

Step-1

Get your ingredients ready. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius/ 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ Gas Mark 5.

 

Step-2

Sift flour and baking powder into the mixing bowl. Mix using a whisk and make a well in the middle. We are using a whisk so we can evenly incorporate the baking powder into the flour as well as introduce more air which will help produce a soft textured bread.

 

Step-3

Pour the ice-cream and milk into the well you created in the middle.

 

Step-4

Stir with your wooden spoon until a smooth sticky dough forms. Allow dough to rest for 10 min so that any air bubbles formed during mixing burst.

 

Step-5

As the dough is resting, get your loaf tin ready.

 

Step-6

Grease and line your tin with grease proof paper and grease the paper as well! As you will notice the grease proof paper will stick to the sides of the tin courtesy of grease initially applied to the sides before lining the paper.

 

Step-7

Put the dough into the prepared cake tin and evenly spread it across.

 

step-8

Bake in preheat oven for 1 hr or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
