Cake batter ice cream is my husband's favorite flavor at Cold Stone Creamery. So, for his birthday I decided to make it at home. Wow, it is simple to make, creamy and so, so delicious!!!

If my husband and I take our two boys to Cold Stone for a special treat and each of us gets an ice cream with some kind of mix-in it ends up being close to $20. Yikes! Making it at home cut my cost to about $5 AND I got to control all of my ingredients. We eat all organic in our house so it's an added bonus that it's organic cake batter ice cream!

Step 1: Cake Batter Ice Cream Recipe

To make cake batter ice cream I used an old basic vanilla ice cream recipe I had and basically just added cake batter!

Cake Batter Ice Cream - Cold Stone Creamery Copycat Recipe
1 pint heavy cream*
1 c. milk* (I used 2%)
1/2 c. sugar*
1 c. dry yellow box cake mix* (you could also make your own instead of using a box)
2 t. vanilla extract
pinch of turmeric* (optional, however, it doesn't add flavor but gives the ice cream it's deep cream color)

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until mixture is smooth. Chill mixture in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

*organic ingredients

Step 2: Freeze in Ice Cream Machine

After mixture is adequately chilled freeze according to ice cream machine instructions.

Mixture will become thick and creamy in about 20-30 minutes depending on your machine!

Eat, enjoy and save money!!
Thanks for sharing this, I am going to try it. Good on you for going organic where possible!
<p>Is that regular sugar or powder sugar?</p>
In Canada Cold Stone is called Marble Slab (even though I've never been there)
<p>No, in Canada we HAD Cold Stone in our Tim Horton's but due to a dispute they left. Too bad, I loved them but going to check out Marble Slab today.</p>
<p>Marble Slab is decent, but it's certainly no Cold Stone. One cropped up in the town I grew up in about 2 years ago, and then went out of business less than a year later.</p>
Do you need an ice cream machine or can u do it in the freezer?
That is so cool! I just joined and I'm following you!
Very good and an easy way to impress others. I will be making this again.
So gonna make this!!! It's "COOL" (no pun intended)
Also my favorite flavor :)
yum yum!
Like real cOOl Man, I'm voted.
This looks delicious! Thanks for sharing
Wonderful!And especially because it didn't cost $20! (if you already had an ice cream machine)
