Peach Ice Cream Cake

Peach Ice Cream Cake is heavenly. When I made up a batch of cookies last month with ice cream in them, I thought I was in heaven. So I thought, why not try those same cookies with peaches. Sensational! Then, I thought to myself, since ice cream works so well with cookies, why not see if it works in a cake? Yes, Peach Ice Cream Cake was just as delectable and ultimately so very satisfying. I chose to use the ice cream in place of the normal “oil” in the recipe. The results were stunning.

What’s not to like about peaches, cake and ice cream? All I can say is it works so well together. Granted, I was afraid the texture would be weird, but I really wanted to give it a try. The texture was not weird, it was not runny or soupy, it was perfect and it tasted incredibly well. Using ice cream in baked goods is phenomenal.

I’m going to miss my peach trees (kind of) now that we have sold that home south of the Dallas Metroplex and are moving a little farther north to a new neighborhood without fruit trees. Our new neighborhood has lots of cedar trees and live oaks, but I haven’t seen one fruit tree. There was so much land on our previous property that one of the previous owners planted six peach trees with at least three different kinds of peaches.

While I will miss not having an abundant harvest of peaches anymore, taking care of peach trees is a lot of work–more than we care to do these days. So when I want a peach dessert I’ll have to get peaches from the store instead. This year, the peaches in our area grocery stores have been mammoth-sized. No kidding, most of them are as big as or bigger than grapefruits. One peach probably yields more than a cup of fruit. That’s a lot!

If you’re looking for a delectable peach dessert and are willing to give ice cream a try as an ingredient, then I can’t recommend Peach Ice Cream Cake high enough. After sampling a smidgeon I gave this one to our pastor and his family and they raved over it (and blamed me for eating too much of it). 🙂 Seriously, this cake rocks. If you’re a risk taker, try making it with Peach, Butter Pecan, Snickerdoodle, or another favorite flavor of ice cream, too. You won’t be disappointed. Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.

I used these ingredients for the icing. If you want a thinner icing, use milk instead of cream.

Whisk icing ingredients until you get it to the right spreading consistency.

Drizzle powdered sugar icing over cake.

    Could you use frozen peaches? Peaches are now out of season well the good tasting ones anyway. What about other fruits could you exchange that too?

    That looks delicious, Teresa! I never would have guessed ice cream would work in place of oil. I guess maybe because there is a lot of fat in ice cream? Anyway, it sure looks moist and yummy!

      Hi, Shari. Yes, ice cream works wonderfully in cookies and cakes. I’m sure it would be good in muffins and sweet breads too! Love the way it tastes.
