  • Custard– You will need frozen custard.
  • Flour– You will need self-rising flour for the best results.
  • Powdered Sugar– This is great for homemade icing.
  • Blueberries– Use fresh berries for the best flavoring and to add on top.
  • Lemon Extract– You can buy any lemon flavoring.
  • Cream Cheese– Use this softened or at room temperature.
  • Frosting– You will need lemon frosting, I used Betty Crocker.

How to Make Ice Cream Bread

To start, in a large bowl, add all of your ingredients, and combined. 

First, use two pieces of parchment paper to line a loaf pan from side to side and another lengthwise, and make sure to allow the parchment paper to hang over the edges, so it is easier to take out the bread.

Next, place your bread into the oven for one hour at 375 degrees, and when the bread begins to turn a light brown, use foil and tent it on top, to prevent it from burning. 

Pouring the batter into the loaf pan.

Make The Frosting

To start the cream cheese into a mixing bowl once it has softened to room temperature.
First, put half of the frosting into a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth.
Secondly, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool in the loaf pan for about 30 minutes and once it has cooled using the parchment paper, lift it out of the pan, and transfer it to a cooling rack.
Thirdly, use the other half of the frosting to spread on top of the finished bread and top with some fresh blueberries.
You can store it in the fridge until it’s ready to serve or serve right away.

Can I Use any Brand of Ice Cream?

Yes, you can use a different brand of ice cream for this recipe. I recommend making the recipe as is before making any changes. This recipe is very delicious and I think you will love it.

What replaces self-rising flour?

If you do not have self-rising flour, it is just fine. You can a replacement. You will use 1 cup of all purpose flour to 1 teaspoon of baking soda.

Servings 10 slices


  • 2 cups plus 2 Tablespoons of Andy's Frozen Custard
  • 1 1/2 cups of Self Rising Flour
  • 1 cup of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 cup of Blueberries plus a few extras to sprinkle on top
  • 1 bottle of Goodman's Lemon Flavoring


  • 4 ounces of cream cheese - softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 a can of Lemon Frosting - I used Betty Crocker


  • Place all ingredients in a  large bowl, and stir until well mixed. Line a loaf pan with 2 pieces of Parchment paper; One from side to side, and one length-wise, making sure you have enough paper to hang over the loaf pan, so you can easily lift the bread out when it's baked.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.  When the top of the bread turns golden brown, cover the top with a piece of foil, tented, so it won't stick, to prevent the top of the bread from burning.


  • Soften the cream cheese to room temperature, and place the cream cheese in a mixing bowl.  Add half of the can of Frosting to the mixing bowl, and mix on medium until completely blended and smooth.
  • Remove from the oven, and cool in the pan for 30 minutes.  Lift the bread out using the Parchment paper, and place it on a wire rack to finish cooling.  When the bread is cooled completely, frost the top of the bread with the frosting, and sprinkle Blueberries on top.  Serve immediately, or place the bread in the refrigerator until time to serve.  Serve, and Enjoy!


To tent the foil; tear off a piece of foil, and fold it longwise down the center.  Unfold the foil, and place it over the loaf pan, tenting the pan, and keeping the foil off the top of the bread.  ALSO, Goodman's Flavorings can be found in most grocery stores on the baking aisle.
