Velvety and rich chocolate loaf cake with just 3 ingredients? It can be done and you don't even need a mixer. The cake comes out so rich, with a very tender crumb.


  • 1 1/2 cups full fat chocolate ice cream or gelato about 1 pint (see note)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare and spray with oil two 6 x 2.5 loaf pans.

  2. Heat ice cream in the microwave for about 30-40 seconds until almost fully melted. Pour into large mixing bowl. Add in flour and baking powder. Either by hand or using a stand mixer, mix until no flour lumps remain (use a whisk if mixing by hand). Pour into two loaf pans. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.


I buy my disposable loaf pans on Amazon*

Be sure to use a richly flavored ice cream for best results.
