Melted Ice Cream Bundt cake is my recipe of the day with the blogging group Bundt Bakers. We group up monthly to post recipes for  Bundt cakes or things made in a Bundt  pan.

We take turns deciding themes and this month was my turn.

Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake

I decided on melted ice cream Bundts since it is hot as all get out in August and no ice cream stays frozen. So why not  make it into a cake?

This cake  comes together easily with very few ingredients. I  wanted mine to  be mix based  since it is simple and something kids might like  to help make.

With that  in mind, I  chose a whimsical  ice cream and decor, to give  it that Unicorn feel  that  all  kids love.

The texture  of the cake is  a little heavier  with the ice cream, similar  to pound  cake. It won’t be  light like Angel  food  (even though  it  has  lots of egg whites).

The flavor keeps  the cotton candy flavor, although probably not as strong as the ice cream base. But  cotton candy  is a very difficult flavor to  achieve in any other way. If you do like more, serve the cake itself with  a scoop alongside.

Equipment

  • nonstick Bundt pan

Ingredients
  

  • 1 pint ice cream, melted (Graeter's cotton candy flavor ) (has blue color)
  • milk (top up whisked ice cream to 2 cups)
  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 15.25 ounce box Pillsbury white cake mix
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup pastel cookies sprinkles
  • 15 ounce tub vanilla frosting
  • food coloring
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Spray a standard 10-12 cup nonstick Bundt pan with Baker's release spray.
  • Whisk melted ice cream and measure; top up with milk to equal 2 cups.
  • Mix ice cream/milk with egg whites, then mix with cake mix until smooth. If not satisfied with the color, you could try amending with food color. Mine was blue which turned out slightly more greenish blue once baked (as you can see).
  • Fold in sprinkles for a confetti look.
  • Place batter in the prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick tests clean.
  • Cool in pan 15 minutes then turn out and finish cooling on a wire rack.
  • Divide frosting into 2 stainproof bowls (glass or stainless).
  • Add one to two drops of food color in each along with just enough milk to make a drizzling consistency. I used Neon food colors (McCormick?)- that's purple and blue.
  • Sprinkle with additional pastel sprinkles for decor.
  • Let the icing set up 30-45 minutes to dry before packing it away in an airtight cake keeper.
