Every time my friends and I visit the ice cream parlor, there are a few flavors I will always avoid as a matter of principle. Bubble gum. Cotton candy. Cake Batter.
GUYS, DO NOT AVOID THE CAKE BATTER.
Granted, I don’t know if I would order it at an ice cream shop even now–to be honest, all the preservatives and artificial flavors in storebought cake batter ice cream kind of creep me out. I mean, eating baked cake is one thing–raw, unadulterated preservatives are another. But then I had this awesome opportunity to make my own at home using a cake mix that boasts no colors, preservatives, or artificial flavors, and wow. Just…wow.
Guys, you won’t even want to avoid this no-churn cake batter ice cream! Four minutes from start to freezer is all it takes, I promise.
My big confession here is that I don’t own an ice cream maker–whiiiiich, is good news for you because that means this ice cream is churn-free, hassle-free! It starts with just a few ingredients that I bet you’ve got sitting in your pantry right now, like:
- Sweetened condensed milk
- Heavy whipping cream
- Powdered sugar
- Pillsbury Purely Simple white cake mix (lookee, I even haz coupons for you!!! Save $0.50 on 1 with coupon, available 10/19-11/15. Expires 11/30!)
If for some reason you’re missing any of these, I highly recommend you bust your butt to the nearest grocery store ASAP. The moment I found out a non-scary, ice-cream-safe cake mix actually existed to satiate my sudden cake batter ice cream craving, I jogged the whole 2 miles to Ralph’s and raided their cake mix section for a few boxes of that adorable dough boy mix:
So am I a fan? Uh, YES. I am a cake batter convert and I am not at all ashamed to admit it–in fact, I am so unabashedly ready to eat my words AND this no-churn cake batter ice cream in the same barrel-sized scoop!
What are you waiting for? Get out there and get your cake batter on!!
What’s your favorite way to enjoy Purely Simple cake mix/batter? Baked? In ice cream? Straight from the bowl?
