I was really curious with this recipe whether it works or not as its ingredients are really few and simple. (the write up mentioned that the main ingredients of the ice cream are eggs, sugar and some kind of fat therefore it is the basic kind of cake can be made simply by mixing together ice cream and flour) eemmm very interesting I thought so me and my daughter, Varsha, took it to task with making of this muffins.

True to its simple ingredients, it was done in less than 15minutes. Lets look at the ingredients and the way to do it.

What you need
6 scoops of ice cream ( I use vanilla flavor)
6 tbsp self raising flour
Sugar Sprinkles

note : use a tablespoon to measure the ice cream if you dont have an ice cream scoop.

Method

Take the tub of ice cream out of the freezer about 20 minutes beforehand, or put the right amount of ice cream in a mixing bowl and leave for about 10 minustes to soften up.

Meanwhile, preheat the over to 190C and put paper muffin cases on a baking tray.

Beat the ice cream with a wooden spoon until its really soft and runny, then sift in the flour and stir just enough to mix it in.

Spoon the mixture into muffin cases, top with sugar sprinkles and then bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the cakes are risen and golden.

and cup cakes/muffin couldnt be any simpler......next time will try with different flavor of ice cream....
