This cake batter ice cream is perfection. You can make it on a whim with only five ingredients, and it’s done in about 25 minutes! Perfect for parties!



  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cake mix


  1. In a medium bowl mix together all of the ingredients. You can use just about any cake mix flavor that you’d like (I really like funfetti, white, and yellow cake mix).
  2. Pour the ice cream mixture in your ice cream maker and process according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  3. I use a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker that you just freeze the canister the ice cream is made in. It takes about 15 minutes to make ice cream with no salt and ice to mess with. I love it! If you like a harder ice cream, put the ice cream in a freezer container and cover. Let it freeze for at least 2 hours before serving. The ice cream straight out of the maker is just like soft-serve. Out of the freezer it is like store-bought.
