Cake Batter Ice Cream

Oh cake batter, how I love thee.

I thought about a poem or haiku here but I’m tired and I can’t think of any rhyming words that have to do with cake batter. Clatter, fatter, matter…

How I love you, delicious cake batter
But how I wish you wouldn’t make me fatter.
Your sprinkles are ever so pretty
I’m glad you in ice cream form didn’t taste gritty…

Yeah, see, I got nothing. So I’ll just tell you this: if you liked any of the other cake batter things I made, you’ll like this as well. And as far as ice cream making goes, this ranks up super high on the “wow was that easy!” list.

I had a feeling the cake batter flavor would get stronger as the mixture chilled so I was hesitant to start off with more than half a cup even with all of the liquids. I like a strong cake batter flavor so I ended up using the full 3/4 cup, but pretty much anywhere between a half a cup to 3/4 would be fine. Or, if you’re a huge cake batter fan, go for a full cup!
