Disclosure: I love ice cream and these are my stories (insert Law & Order thump thump here along with the line: this is a sponsored post)
Fall is in full swing around this house. Complete with un-purchased pumpkins and promises that NEXT year I’ll build a graveyard in the front lawn. Seriously folks, I never have time to decorate for Halloween. I blame the retailers. Yes. The retailers. If they didn’t already have their Christmas items up on the shelves, I’d be able to concentrate on the upcoming holiday. But alas, my brain is already mentally ticking off the ways I will keep the dog from peeing on the Christmas tree.
The only thing around here that signals our full swing into fallness? Pumpkin bread. We love it. Can’t get enough of it. When we run out, I make secret lists of places I will hide the next batch of bread and muffins so that I always have some for myself. Well this year, I am happy to report I am making pumpkin bread even more yummy!
How you ask? Well, I got the bright idea to try warm, moist pumpkin bread with Breyers Extra Creamy Vanilla ice cream! It tastes just as good as it sounds. I call this Pumpkin Bread Delight!
Now, if you want to make it a special grown up dessert: wait til the kids go to sleep.
Wait! There’s more. You can actually take pumpkin flavored creamer and make your very own pumpkin whipped cream to put on top of the ice cream. I also sprinkle on a little cinnamon to make it look pretty.
Two things you’re wondering: wow Mami, I didn’t know you baked AND could make whip cream? It’s easy! You can get pumpkin bread mix in a box. All ingredients except for the eggs are in the box. The bread mix is already there and you get a can of pumpkin guts. Throw them in a bowl as per the instructions and mix.
The whip cream? Here’s what I do. I get a big glass bowl and then I get a little metal bowl. I put the little bowl in the big bowl and then I put ice all around the little bowl. I add heavy whipping cream to the little bowl along with a spoonful of sugar and drops of whatever flavor I like (my usual is coconut but like I said, for this one, add some pumpkin flavor!). Use a hand mixer until the whip cream is at the consistency you like. I always make it extra fluffy and then it feels like I’m eating even more ice cream.
