Bake a simple cake with our 2 ingredient cake recipe. Yes, it works. Super simple cake recipe, just watch our video and follow along.
This cake recipe succeeds because ice cream has the same ingredient as most cakes:
- Dairy - in this case cream and milk
- Vanilla or some sort of flavoring
The addition of self rising flour makes for a true 2 ingredient cake. I have found if you want to get a high rise, use a narrow loaf pan. And in true "use what you got"™ GardenFork style, we had some dried cranberries on hand, so we tossed those in. You could add in walnuts or raisinss, dates, etc.
The choice of what kind of ice cream opens up all sorts of possiblities. Want to make pistachio cake? Buy pistachio ice cream. I think a chocolate chip mint ice cream cake sounds great. That and cup of coffee makes dessert easy. I also like this style of simple cake recipe because it gets kids interested in cooking. I'm thinking they will be curious about how ice cream can become cake.
I like to have ice cream along with most quick cakes, and our 2 ingredient cake work well with additional ice cream in its original form alongside the cake. Now i'm wondering if someone makes banana ice cream, and whether it would work , and how it would taste. With the endless flavors of ice cream available, you will busy with the cake recipe.
If you like easy cakes, consider trying out our 5 minute microwave cake, decadent and done in 5 min. nice.
If you don't have self rising flour, you can make some. For each cup of self rising flour needed, add 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder and a pinch of salt to one cup of all purpose flour

Thanks Lisa! Welcome to GardenFork.
Your videographer is hysterical!!!!!!!!!
Such a delightful presentation and novel idea. I am vegan so do not imbibe but I love the creativity and your videos are really nicely done. Offbeat like me!! Kudos.
Your sub for self-rising flour is: 1C flour, 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder and pinch salt; so what is best mix when your reg recipe says 1-1/2 C. self rising flour--how much baking powder and salt for the extra 1/2 cup? (Eric please email reply, as don't check back here much)
