Tired of dry cake? Searching for something that will make your favorite cake recipe mouth-watering delicious?
What's The Secret?
Then try Aleta Meadowlark's recipe for ice cream cake (but it's not what you think). A cookbook collector, Aleta stumbled across a recipe from the late 1900s she found in a cookbook published by a New England church. The chocolate cake recipe calls for a secret ingredient: ice cream.
First, grease and flour a tube pan. Aleta also recommends letting the ice cream soften while preparing the pan and preheating the oven by scooping it up into small chunks in a bowl and letting it sit at room temperature.
Aleta said the recipe contributor, Connie Aubuchon, described the cake in the cookbook as "very moist, rich and chocolatey." Aleta confirmed that description and said it's even spongy when you cut into it. You can top it with whipped cream and cherries, a powdered sugar glaze or whatever pairs perfectly with the cake.
