MASH UP (food combining)

Ice cream Bread

There is no end to the way people like to enjoy their food be it sweet or savoury. Combining your favourite foods together can produce unpredictable or even outstanding results that can wow family and friends.

This trend has been going on for a number of years in restaurants with the fusion of ingredients from across the globe to produce some outstanding dishes which combine elements of different culinary traditions.

In my search for new hybrid ideas in food combining I have come across some weirded and wonderful ideas. Two of which I would like to share with you.  The first recipe is ICE CREAM BREAD…..Yes that’s right! I was doubtful at first also,but it sounded so quirky I just had to try it.

The bread consists of only TWO ingredients….S.R. Flour and ice cream of your choice.
Take it from me the ice cream makes this bread so light, and the best bit is, it only takes minutes to mix up and get into the oven.


Makes one 8×4 loaf
240g Ice Cream, (full fat works best) any flavour, softened (I used Carte D’or vanilla and I added 50g walnuts)
180g Self-RaisingFlour
