Told ya, that I used some of the icecream in breads too. Well here is one yeast bread loaf made with melted ice cream! The icecream gives it a mild flavor and as most of my mildly sweeet breads works great for French Toasts(recipe included)! Breakfast should be fun and simple with a few new twists every now and then.:) The flavor can be enhanced with some added cherries and amaretto extract or liquor.
This yeast bread Loaf is made with melted So Delicious Cherry Amaretto Almond Milk icecream. Its a perfect Loaf to get everyone to eat more whole grain without knowing it. An icecream bread will always be picked up before a plain wheat loaf 🙂
It has a mild taste of the Cherry Amaretto ice cream and tastes best toasted. Add chopped up cherries when cherries are in season for a cherry filled loaf. Both the coconut milk and almond milk versions of the ice cream will work. This bread is soy free. Use other icecreams for variations:)
Ingredients: Make 8 by 4 inch loaf
1.5 cups bread flour
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup melted So Delicious Cherry Amaretto Almond milk icecream
1/4+ warm water
1.5 teaspoons active yeast
2 Tablespoons raw sugar or equivalent sweetener
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons organic canola oil or olive oil
Add the yeast and 1 teaspoon sugar to warm water. Mix and let it sit until frothy. 10 minutes.
In a stand mixer, add the flours, salt, rest of the sugar and mix well.
Add in the melted icecream, oil and yeast mixture and knead for 6-8 minutes. Scraping sides every 2-3 minutes.
Check the dough when it starts to form and Add a Tablespoon or so more warm water if the dough is hard to touch. Also add in half a cup of chopped cherries if you like.
Knead into a soft dough. The dough should be soft and well formed. It will be sticky because of the icecream, but not because of excess wetness.
Place dough in well greased container. Spray water on top, cover and let sit in a warm place for 1.5 hours or until doubled.
Take dough out on a working surface.
Using a little bread flour, knead for a minute, and then flatten it out into an inch thick rectangle.
Roll it up like a jelly roll. Seal the edges. Place the roll seam side down in a well greased or parchment lined bread pan.
Spray water on top. Sprinkle some oats or seeds.
Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for 45 minutes or until doubled.
Bake in pre-heated 365 degrees F for 35-40 minutes.
Remove from bread pan and cool on rack completely before slicing.
French Toast Option:Make 3-4 french toast slices with 1/2 cup vanilla almond milk and a Tablespoon each of finely ground Oats and flax seed. Dip and pan fry the slices. Serve topped with warm maple and a dollop of the Cherry Amaretto ice cream.
