Five Minute Ice Cream Cake

Five Minute Ice Cream Cake Square 2

Everybody needs a go-to dessert and I’m pretty sure I just found mine!  This oh-so-easy ice cream cake comes together so fast it can hardly even be called a recipe, and yet the pretty stripes make it an impressive showstopper.  Because the only thing better than a delicious dessert that only takes minutes to throw together is one that LOOKS like it took all day!

For this version I used chocolate chip mint ice-cream and layered it twice, but if you wanted to get even fancier you could do two different flavors of ice-cream.  The mint was a great combo with the Oreos but I’m sure you could substitute your own favorite flavors with just as much success.  I used my silicone loaf pan which made the cake pop right out, but as long as you line the pan with foil you should be good with a standard loaf pan as well.

    Ha! “2 hours and 5 minutes…” some people! Sheesh.
    I think this looks awesome! And I’m SURE you could eat it right away if you really wanted. But I’d rather follow your idea and let it set. I looove ice cream cake! And Oreos!
