Cheats Chocolate Bread~Recipe Swap Jan 2019

I am a member of the facebook Recipe swap group where food bloggers are paired with another blogger in the group and they get the opportunity to discover their partners blog and select a recipe to recreate. This is a great way to make new friends, discover new blogs to follow and learn new styles of global cuisines.

This month I was allocated Seema's blog mildlyindian. Seema is a vegetarian blogger, living in Sydney, who is also an avid traveller, she says in her bio that she gets inspiration for her recipes whilst travelling. Looking through the blog there was a lovely mix of travel posts and recipe posts. I loved all the south Indian style recipes and have book marked a few to try.

My choice for the recipe swap was the 2 ingredient ice cream loaf bread recipe on Seemas blog. I was intrigued as to how this recipe would work. I also had a half empty tub of chocolate ice cream that needed to be eaten so I thawed it to use it up. I had to make minor changes to the recipe ie adding a little more liquid. I also added a handful of chocolate chips that were in my pantry screaming to be used.The result was a very tasty chocolate  bread, however it was a little dense, maybe because I used 100% whole meal flour rather than a lighter flour.

The chocolate bread was wonderful served with a dusting of cocoa powder and some tart raspberries and accompanied by a cup of piping hot coffee. If you like chocolate check out these delectable Reese Hot Cocoa Bombs

Yield: 12 slices

Cheats Chocolate Bread

This is a delicious cheats sweetchocolate loaf bread that can be made with store cupboard ingredients.
prep time: 5 minscook time: 30 minstotal time: 35 mins


2 cups chocolate chip ice cream thawed.
1.5 cups whole wheat flour
A handful chocolate chips(optional)
1 teaspoon cocoa for dusting.
2-3 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C
  2. Line an 8 inch loaf pan with grease proof paper and keep aside. Alternatively grease and dust with flour.
  3. Add the thawed ice cream into a mixing bowl and give it a quick whisk 
  4. Add the whole wheat flour and gently fold it in with light hands. Once mixed add the chocolate chips. If the mixture seems too stiff add a couple of tablespoons on milk or water.I had to do this to make the batter dropping consistency.
  5.  Try not to over whisk the mixture.
  6. Pour the mix into the prepared baking tin.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes, to test if the chocolate bread is ready insert a skewer into the center of the bread if it comes out clean its ready, if not cook for another 5 -10 minutes. My bread took only 30 minutes to cook
  8. Once cooked remove from oven and cool in tin. Once totally cooled remove from tin and slice. Dust with cocoa powder.


It can be made with any icecream flavour.
