Recipe: No-Churn Ice Cream Cake


For the ice cream:
– 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
– 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– Optional mix-ins: crushed cookies, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, fruit, etc.

For the cake layers:
– 1 box (about 18 ounces) of your favorite cake mix (chocolate, vanilla, etc.)
– Ingredients needed to prepare the cake mix (eggs, oil, water)

For assembly:
– 9-inch springform pan
– Parchment paper
– Plastic wrap


1. Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions on the box. Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch round cake pan. Bake the cake according to the package instructions. Once baked, let the cake cool completely.

2. While the cake is cooling, prepare the ice cream mixture. In a large mixing bowl, whip the chilled heavy cream until stiff peaks form.

3. In another bowl, mix together the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract until well combined.

4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk mixture until smooth and creamy.

5. If desired, fold in your favorite mix-ins, such as crushed cookies, chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or fruit.

6. Line the sides of the springform pan with parchment paper, leaving some excess paper sticking out the top.

7. Cut the cooled cake horizontally into two equal layers. Place one layer of cake at the bottom of the lined springform pan.

8. Pour half of the ice cream mixture over the cake layer in the pan. Use a spatula to spread it out evenly.

9. Place the second layer of cake on top of the ice cream layer. Pour the remaining ice cream mixture over the cake layer and spread it out evenly with a spatula.

10. Cover the springform pan with plastic wrap and freeze the ice cream cake for at least 6 hours or overnight, until firm.

11. Once the ice cream cake is firm, remove it from the freezer and release it from the springform pan. Peel off the parchment paper from the sides.

12. Slice the ice cream cake and serve immediately. Enjoy!

This no-churn ice cream cake is creamy, delicious, and perfect for any occasion. Feel free to customize it with your favorite cake flavor and mix-ins for a personalized treat that everyone will love.
