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.
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!!
