2 Ingredient Cake

What could be easier than a two-ingredient cake??  Hardly anything, I say!  I got this neat idea from GardenFork, a video blog that has LOTS of really cool videos.  Go check them out sometime.  (www.GardenFork.tv)

Okay, so technically this cake has more than 2 ingredients, but there are really just 2 “items” you need to have on hand to make it.  In the GardenFork video, they use self-rising flour.  I was curious if it would work with Bisquick, so I had to try it.  The other item you’ll need is a pint of ice cream, any flavor you like.  Here are the super-easy instructions:

2 Ingredient Cake

1 pint of ice cream (melted enough to stir easily)

1 1/2 cups Bisquick (or homemade equivalent)

1.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease/flour a bread pan.

2.  Stir together ingredients and pour into the bread pan.  Bake for 45 minutes.


This worked out pretty good, and I would describe the end product as a very basic sweet bread.  There are a lot of things you could do to make this more interesting, such as adding fruit, spices, or different flavored ice cream (Mackinac Island Fudge, for example?).   I recommend trying this — it is easy enough that most kids (with supervision) would have fun making it as well.  After you try it out, let me know how you made it different or if you have a favorite 3rd ingredient.

Happy baking!!
