NO-CHURN BIRTHDAY CAKE ICE CREAM INGREDIENTS

No-Churn Birthday Cake Ice Cream

You will need:

  • 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups of cold heavy whipping cream
  • ⅓ cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 tub of blue frosting
  • ¼ cup of birthday sprinkles

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK: For a dairy-free alternative, you could use coconut milk for your ice cream.

HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM: Vegans should also switch the dairy whipping cream for coconut cream.

SPRINKLES: Sugar strands, hundreds and thousands, jimmies – whatever you call them, sprinkles add so much fun. Use the regular multi-colored ones, or mix it up with sprinkles of different shapes and sizes.

BIRTHDAY CAKE FLAVORING: A dash of this optional magic ingredient will make your ice cream taste exactly like birthday cake.

HOW TO MAKE THIS NO-CHURN BIRTHDAY CAKE ICE CREAM RECIPE

STEP ONE: Use an electric mixer to whisk the the whipping cream until very stiff peaks form. You should start on a low setting and increase to medium.

PRO TIP: Chill your condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and loaf tin in the fridge before you start – it will make everything freeze more easily.

STEP TWO: In a medium-sized bowl combine the condensed milk and sugar. Once well mixed, pour condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream whilst whipping continuously.

STEP THREE: Pour ice cream mixture into a loaf pan and smooth out.

PRO TIP: Lining the loaf pan with parchment paper prior to filling will make clean up much easier.

STEP FOUR: Dollop a few scoops of frosting and some sprinkles on top of the ice cream mixture and use a knife to swirl it in. Repeat with more frosting and sprinkles until you’re pleased with the look. Add extra sprinkles on top.

STEP FIVE: Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for six hours or until set.

HOW TO SERVE

This creamy ice cream will be fantastic for hot summer days, especially on the side of a yummy birthday cake. How about our chocolate brownie cake or our vanilla cupcakes. Use this as an ice cream base for an amazing sundae too. Scoop it into one of our chocolate chip cookie cups and add your favorite toppings including chocolate sauce, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, whipped cream and of course, a maraschino cherry.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: The fridge isn’t cold enough to store ice cream, you’ll need to freeze it. Don’t use the freezer section of your refrigerator as it won’t be as cold as a separate freezer.

IN THE FREEZER: Homemade ice cream can’t be stored for as long as the store-bought variety. You can store your frozen homemade ice cream for up to a month in a tightly sealed container in the freezer.

FAQ

What is no-churn ice cream?

Typically, when making ice cream from scratch, you will need to use an ice cream maker and that usually entails the step of “churning” the ice cream. A no churn recipe means no ice cream machine and as you could guess, no churning. It saves many steps and makes it super easy to make homemade ice cream that is just as tasty as regular ice cream but doesn’t need fancy equipment.

Could I use this ice cream recipe to make an ice cream cake?

This is a great idea and although we haven’t tried it yet, I can’t see why you couldn’t use this creamy ice cream as part of an easy ice cream cake.

Can I use nonfat milk in this ice cream recipe?

You can use any type of milk in this recipe but a lower fat milk such as skim milk will result in a less creamy ice cream than if you make it with whole milk or cream.

Notes

TIP: Chill your condensed milk, heavy whipping cream and loaf tin in the fridge before you start – it will make everything freeze more easily.
TIP: Coconut milk and coconut cream are two different ingredients. If you’re making the vegan version of this recipe, you’ll need both.
TIP: When serving, warm your ice cream scoop with hot water, it’ll make scooping so much easier!
