Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake

Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake


What do you think is a good excuse to be making cake? Birthdays? Anniversaries? ...Tuesday afternoons?

Because I have made a cake on each one of those occasions. To be more specific, I have made this exact ice cream cake on all of those occasions. I think I have found my new favorite dessert.

Now before you freak out at how unhealthy this cake is, I want to give you a list of reasons to try to convince you that you should make this cake:


  1. NO ICE CREAM MAKER REQUIRED! Which is always a bonus for me because I have left my ice cream maker in Vancouver *tear*.
  2. An ice cream recipe without a single egg. So if you are one of those people who aren't comfortable with having eggs in your ice cream, this is the ice cream cake for you!
  3. YOU ARE SO WORTH IT! Even if your reason for making this is because it's a Tuesday afternoon.

If my excessive use of caps lock is not getting at how much I love this cake, let me spell it out for you. I L-O-V-E T-H-I-S C-A-K-E!!

And if you are like my dad and gets mad when I say that I love inanimate objects because it devalues the word love itself, I think I will just reserve the word love for this cake. Sorry boyfriend. You have competition.

What you'll need:

Ice cream cake:

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
Chocolate layer:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 package oreo cookies, crushed into small pieces

Directions:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, beat the whipping cream until the cream forms stiff peaks. Add in 1 can condensed milk, vanilla and peanut butter, and beat until fully combined. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, cocoa powder, 1 can condensed milk, water, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until fully combined. Pour into a 10 inch springform pan or a 7x11 baking dish. (I have used both, and they are both great. I use the baking dish when there is more people I need to share the cake with.) Sprinkle the crushed oreos on top.
  3. Pour the whipping cream mixture on top, and place in freezer for 4 hours, or until hardened.
