I have been curious about ice cream bread for a very long time now. Just one of those bucket list things I have always wanted to do.

Some people say ice cream bread is delicious and some people say otherwise. I must say, I was very pleasantly surprised with how my bread turned out. I guarantee you, this bread is moist and flavorful!

Should I make my ice cream bread with just melted ice cream and self-rising flour like the traditional recipes call for? Or should I do what I think might make it just a bit yummier? Of course I had to with a bit yummier!!

So I made a few changes. This Strawberry Ice Cream Bread is a winner! It’s still simple to make, incredibly moist and it has a wonderful strawberry flavor!

My Strawberry Ice Cream Bread would make a great addition to any breakfast or brunch!

Not only did I use softened strawberry ice cream, but I also added this instant strawberry crème pudding mix. I purchased the pudding mix at Walmart recently when I was in there for something else.

I don’t make it to Walmart often so I truly don’t know if this is an item they carry year round or just at certain times of the year.

If you prefer to use self-rising feel free, simply omit the baking powder and salt. The traditional recipes for ice cream bread simply call for ice cream and self-rising flour.

I chose to go with all-purpose flour and add my own baking powder and salt. I highly recommend you do the same, but it’s your bread so you can make it however you would like to. :)

This bread has such a pleasant strawberry flavor I hope you get a chance to make it soon!
