• Blueberry Ice Cream Bread

    Ice cream bread is my newest amazing discovery, and I’ve been wanting to experiment with it again ever since Presley and I made the first loaf. Today, I decided to try it with blueberries and a couple of other ingredients. I’m completely pleased with how this one came out!

    Ready To Slice!

    Ingredients*

    1 Pint Vanilla Ice Cream
    1 1/2 Cups Self Rising Flour
    Blueberries, I used 1 cup of frozen berries.*
    1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
    2 Tablespoons Butter, melted

    *Obviously, you can make blueberry bread by only using blueberry ice cream and self rising flour. Today, I used Dole frozen. I like Dole,  but the berries are very large!

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Mix softened ice cream and flour together well with mixer.

    2. Stir in blueberries.

    3. Pour batter into buttered and floured loaf pan.

    4. Crumble brown sugar over the top of bread.

    6. Drizzle melted butter over brown sugar.

    7. Bake. Begin checking after about 40 minutes.

    8. And this one is heading into the freezer!  I just love it when I am organized!!  :)

    I personally think this is the perfect breakfast bread...not too sweet, but with a divine, sweet crumbly top.

      I have enjoyed reading your writing and recipe.
      I can’t help but ask if you are kin to Watermelon Davis ?
      In Comanche County, Texas, Isaac was known as Watermelon Davis because he grew so many large melons. According to the June 10, 1882, issue of the Comanche Chief, “Isaac Davis-Watermelon Davis as he is generally called from the fact that he…raises great quantities of melons…His farm is in the fork of Indian Creek and the Leon River.”
      This issue also noted that Isaac Davis had brought a beet to the newspaper office that was twenty-two inches long and fourteen inches around as well as a radish that was eighteen inches long!
      Isaac Davis was a great fiddle player. In fact, the story goes that when the family wagons were loaded and headed for Alabama from Tennessee, Isaac was in a wagon playing the fiddle one last time for his neighbors and friends. All along the road people stood crying as they saw the Davis family for the last time.

      It was not until some years later that Isaac became a Christian. After that, he never touched his fiddle again. He said there was no way he was going to touch the very thing that nearly damned his soul to Hell !

        Yes, I am. Isaac (the one you refer to as Watermelon) Davis was the grandfather of my great-grandfather, William Isaac Davis. William Isaac Davis’ father, John, died shortly after the Civil War, and he was reared by his grandparents. I do not know what happened to his mother. I am always looking for info about this family. Do you attend the Davis reunion in Comanche?
