2-Ingredient Pumpkin Bread

Making pumpkin bread couldn't get any easier than with this 2-ingredient recipe.  

When I first heard of ice cream bread, I thought it was brilliant!  Ice cream already has eggs, milk, sugar, and flavoring.  But I couldn't imagine it would taste very good.  Then when I saw pumpkin ice cream at the shop, I knew it was finally time to try it out.  Pumpkin ice cream is made for this recipe - sweet, spicy, and perfect for the holidays!  

While I still prefer my go-to pumpkin bread recipe, this one is great when you don't have the time to hassel with a lot of ingredients, and want something quick and impressive.  It tastes like ice cream! In bread form! 

Mixing bowl
Wooden spoon or spatula
9"x5" bread pan

3 cups (710 mL) melted pumpkin ice cream
2 1/4 cups (280g) self-rising flour*

*if using all-purpose flour, add 3 teaspoons baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon salt

Combine ingredients and pour into greased bread pan.
Bake in a 350F (180C) oven for about 60 minutes.

That's it!  Now how easy was that?

    Has this been tried with some of the lighter ice cream options/. Like low carb/sugar free?

    Is the parchment paper necessary to get that nice edge? Did you grease the pan AND use the paper? I want my bread to come out as perfect-looking as yours :)

    I did grease the pan, just to hold the parchment down. I did my best to crease the paper into the folds, but it was still pretty wobbly, as you can see in the last picture of it baked in the pan. Once it's sliced, no one will notice!

    I have never heard of Ice Cream Bread. Now I have. It seems so obvious. I am a fool. I could have been making absurd sweet bread for so many years!

    Me want, me will make. (I can't even begin to be coherent because I want to eat this so bad. I think I will add chocolate chips).
