2 Ingredient Chocolate Bread (No Eggs, Butter or Oil)

This is an easy chocolate quick bread that you can still make even when you are out of eggs, butter or oil. This bread is soft, moist and chocolatey. It takes only about ten minutes to prepare and everything can be mixed in one bowl, no mixer needed.

This is one of my favorite quick breads to make when I’m short on time and low on ingredients like eggs and butter.


  • Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Self-Rising Flour

This chocolate bread only need chocolate ice cream and self-rising flour. If you like adding chocolate chips to your chocolate bread, you can do that as well. I like adding chocolate chips on top for appearance.

Chocolate Ice Cream: Make sure to use full fat regular chocolate ice cream. I used Breyer’s chocolate ice cream which does not contain any eggs. I don’t recommend using low fat ice cream because it will change the texture of your bread.

Self-Rising Flour: Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour that already has baking powder and salt mixed in. If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can also make your own by mixing together all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

How to Make Chocolate Bread

The ice cream is first melted down. This will help provide a more accurate ice cream measurement. The self-rising flour is then whisked in until smooth. The bread batter is then ready to be baked. It’s that easy.

An easy quick bread that doesn't require eggs, butter or oil. This bread is ready to go in the oven in about 10 minutes. It's an easy one bowl recipe that doesn't even need a mixer.


  • 3 cups (710 ml) melted full fat chocolate ice cream
  • 2 cups (250 g) self-rising flour


  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line an 8.5 x 4.5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. (You can also use a 9 x 5 inch pan but your bread will not rise as high and cooking time will need to be reduced).
  • Add melted ice cream to a large mixing bowl. Sift in the flour using a mesh strainer or flour sifter. The flour needs to be sifted in to make it easier to mix. Mix with a whisk (or a mixer if you prefer) until the batter is smooth and no flour clumps remain. If you want to add chocolate chips to your batter, stir them in now.
  • Pour batter into prepared loaf pan. If you wish to add chocolate chips on top, sprinkle them on now. Bake the bread for about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean (baking time can vary by 10-15 minutes depending on the brand of ice cream you use).
  • Let bread cool fully before cutting and serving.

  • This bread is lightly sweetened. I wanted to make a chocolate bread that wasn't super sweet so that it can be enjoyed for breakfast. To add more sweetness, add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the batter. You can also add more chocolate on top.
  • To make your own self-rising flour, combine 2 cups all purpose flour, 3 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. Whisk until evenly combined.
  • Make sure you melt the ice cream before measuring out the 3 cups. Ice cream brands can vary greatly on how much air they whip into their ice cream so if you measure it while it is still solid, you won't have an accurate measurement.
  • The 2 cups of flour is measured before sifting. To sift the flour in, you can either use a flour sifter or use a fine mesh strainer.
  • It is very difficult to mix the batter and completely eliminate flour lumps if you do not sift it in.
