Did you know you can actually use melted ice cream in almost any cake instead of milk or heavy cream? Yep, it’s a great tip to know in case you run out of milk.

This cake is only similar in the fact that it has melted ice cream in it. This cake is chocolate and starts with a cake mix. It’s super simple to make and it actually tastes like a homemade cake.

Be sure that your ice cream is fully melted before use. Simply leave ice cream inside the container, at room temperature, for 30 minutes to one hour before use. You def don’t want to leave it out for an extended period of time before using it.

You can mix this cake as well as the glaze either with an electric mixer or by hand. It really is so easy I typically whisk it by hand instead of having to get the mixer out. I generally like to mix any recipe with powdered sugar with a mixer. Powdered sugar can be so ornery unless you sift it (a couple of times) before mixing.

You can mix things up and use a different flavor cake mix and ice cream to get a different flavor profile!

Since this cake is so easy to make (you literally can dump all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.) it’s great to make with kids. It’s very hard to mess up cake mix cake.

Any good quality ‘real’ ice cream. Definitely don’t use low-fat or ice milk.


Most stores carry at least Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker, or Pillsbury. You can’t go wrong with any of those brands.

Absolutely, I would add 1.5 to 2 cups of chocolate chips. I prefer dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips but use your favorite.
