Keep Calm - Have an Ice Creakm Cupcake (Recipe)

Updated on December 15, 2014

A cupcake is the closest thing to heaven...

Cupcakes are just delightful, little packages of sweet therapy just for you, imagine a cupcake made with ice-cream.....

Whether you are looking for creative cupcake decorating ideas, cupcake recipes, or even a special or unique present for someone who you know loves cupcakes. Then this page is dedicated to you.

I love cupcakes and I love a little saying that comes to mind.

''Life is short -- have your cupcake and eat it too.''

Cupcakes are wonderful, you do not need to have a masters degree in baking to make these, even the most kitchen-challenged can create delightful little surprises, we sometimes will bake special cupcakes for relatives putting them into a lovely decorated box.

This is a picture of my daughters birthday cake, however these little gems are our favourite.

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 20 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 12


  • 2 cups premium vanilla ice cream very soft
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Position a rack to the center of the oven and preheat it to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the ice cream, flour and baking powder until smooth. Beat in the egg, oil and vanilla.
  3. Dividing the mixture equally among the muffin tins, each to about about the 1/2 full mark.
  4. Bake until the muffins have risen, lightly golden. Test with a toothpick, if it comes out clean, then remove the cupcakes from the oven.
  5. (approx 20 minutes)
  6. Cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled they are ready to decorate. You can use a dollop of the soft ice cream, smothered over the top, this is my husbands favourite.
  7. Or spice up butter icing by adding fresh strawberries as you mix the butter and icing sugar.Ingredients

  9. 2 (16-ounce) icing (powdered) sugar, sifted
  10. 1 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries

      There is no junk food in our house right now and I think that a cupcake would be the perfect treat. I'll have to try the ice cream cupcake. It looks sooooo good.

      I love to look @ cupcakes. I love the idea of them. But, being a recovering perfectionist, the peeling the paper and all the little crumblies drive me crazy (thus the present tense of recovering rather than past tense). ;) Great cupcake & "love of cupcake" lens!
