Sunday is National Ice Cream Day and July is officially National Ice Cream Month so it just felt right to share my new favorite ice cream recipe. This No Churn Cake Batter Ice Cream is packed with chunks of yellow cake, rainbow sprinkles and a cake batter flavored base.
The perfect treat to celebrate a birthday or simply a hot summer day.
Ingredients for Cake Batter Ice Cream
The ingredient list for this ice cream is pretty short and sweet. Here’s what you’re going to need:
Make the Cupcakes
Measure out half of the dry cake mix then combine with water, oil and eggs. Scoop into cupcake tins and bake according to the package directions.
Allow the cupcakes to cool. Once they are ready, either cut 3 cupcakes into small chunks or crumble them into a container. Put a lid on top and set them aside while you prep the ice cream base.
Make the No Churn Cake Batter Ice Cream Base
Add 1/2 cup cake mix, sweetened condensed milk, sprinkles and vanilla to a bowl. Stir well until everything is combined and there are no lumps from theh cake mix. Set aside.
Fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk mixure. Once it’s almost come together, add the cake pieces and gently fold.
Place the mixture into a freezer safe container and place in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
