Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Ice Cream Cake

This Ice cream Cake is one of the best cakes ever!!! Not only kids but you too will be all gaga for this cake once you have it.

This cake has three flavours but these are so beautifully blended with each other that no one flavour dominates the other and what you have a delicious treat. It is a melt in the mouth cake. It has both cake as well as ice cream in perfect balance. The cake is not just placed in the bottom and top but is there all over and so is the ice cream. And the best part is that it is a No Bake, No Cook cake. Making this cake is really a cake walk.

So, to have this cool dessert, you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen in scorching heat. Just 10 to 15 minutes and that too with fan/AC on.

It is perfect for all those who neither like cream cakes nor the Butter icing cakes. Also, all of you who want to make a cake for your darlings for their Birthday or just like that, but somehow do not bake, can try this one.

This Ice Cream Cake, from alphabet I is a part of Blog Chatters A2Z Challenge where my theme is Kids Favourite Recipes.

As the name says it all, it needs just 2 ingredients: cake and ice cream. Get these from the market and you are good to go. Of course, you can bake a cake and make ice cream too if you intend too but that’s entirely up to you. Like, I baked the cake and got the ice cream from the market. I baked for two reasons. Firstly, because I bake wheat cakes without refined sugar and secondly it was a just 10 minutes job for me as I made this in the microwave. So, within 10 minutes, right from mixing to unmoulding it, I got the perfect cake.

This recipe is once again of my dear sister in law, Vandana Gupta. She has been making this for the past 3 decades and says that at that time she used to call it Gatto. However today, it is known more by the name of Ice cream Cake as one can easily relate also.

In this recipe, the layers of cake and ice cream are placed alternatively and are then put in the freezer for 4 to 5 hours. So, you can have varied flavours. For example, I have used vanilla cake, chocolate ice cream, and Butterscotch ice cream. Likewise there can be multiple combinations, for example:

  • Vanilla Cake, Vanilla ice cream, Strawberry/Tooti fruiti ice cream
  • Mawa Cake, Kesar Pista ice cream, mango ice cream
  • Chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream, Choco chip Ice cream… and so on.

This cake is made in loose-bottomed cake pan. Once it is set in the freezer, take out the pan, run a knife around the edges and wait for 2 to 3 minutes (depending upon how hot it is that day). Then lift the loose bottom upwards and you have the cake. The cake lifts easily as it is just the creamy ice cream all over. You can also use spring foam cake pans, commonly known as Cheesecake pans. But If any of these are not available then do not lose heart. Take any deep pan, round or any other shape, place a cling film in it, large enough so that it is hanging out of the pan also. You set the cake on this cling film and later holding the cling film take the cake out and then remove the cling film.

Now decorate it as you like.

Making this cake is really easy but still I faced a problem. Any guesses? And that was that I had to put it back in the freezer every few minutes as clicking pics takes long :)-

And if you are wondering whether the cake will get hard in the freezer then it is not at all that way. It remains moist only.

Detailed Recipe of Making Ice Cream Cake With Step By Step Pics.

  • First of all, you need a pan big enough to hold 1/2 kg cake plus 300 ml ice cream. I have taken 6″ round cake pan with a loose bottom. You can also opt for Cheesecake pans. Or simply, any pan and lay cling film in it, large enough to hang outside the pan also.
  • Mix sugar powder in water and keep it aside.
  • Take out both the ice creams from the freezer and take the required quantities in bowls and let it be on the kitchen counter for 5 to 10 minutes. In the meantime do the following preparations. You need soft ice cream and not melted one. So, in case it becomes too loose then keep it back in the freezer.
  • Now, divide the cake into 3 parts so that you have 3 equal discs of cake. Also, adjust the size of the cake, if need be, according to your pan. (I further trimmed these and used very thin cakes.)

  • Lay one disc in the cake pan. Put 1 or 2 tablespoon sugar water on it to moisten the cake.
  • Now, put half of Chocolate ice cream on it and spread evenly. Exactly the way, the whipped cream is applied.
  • Keep the second layer of cake. Repeat the process but this time put Butterscotch ice cream. You may even put dollops of icecream.
  • Keep the last layer and repeat the process ending with chocolate ice cream. Ensure that it trickles down to the sides of the pan also.
