Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Ice Cream

Are you one of those people who mixes their cake and ice cream together at birthday parties? If so, pay attention — this ice cream recipe could change your life. From the Ample Hills Creamery cookbook comes Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Ice Cream, an intensely decadent ice cream recipe that utilizes five types of dairy: butter, cream cheese (in the cake and ice cream, we might add), skim milk powder, whole milk, and heavy cream. Think you can handle it? Find the recipe below.

Make the cake the night before, that way you won’t have to run the oven the same day you intend to make ice cream. Doing this lets the butter and cream cheese fully soak into the cake, ensuring the chunks that make it into the ice cream are evenly textured. Plus, it’s much easier to chop chilled cake into evenly-sized chunks.
