Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake

Move your ice cream from the bowl to the bundt pan and enjoy this easy-to-make cake.

Have you ever made a 5-Ingredient or less cake? When you think about all of the usual ingredients that go into a cake - butter, sugar, flour, eggs, milk, vanilla - it was a little difficult to think outside the box.  Then I remembered a recipe that used melted ice cream in a cake.

This Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake has only three ingredients - a boxed cake mix, ice cream, and eggs.  As you can imagine this cake was super easy to put together and I wondered how good something so easy would taste.  I need not have worried at all - it was delicious!

It was amazingly tender and had a wonderful vanilla flavor from the vanilla bean ice cream.  This is the perfect cake when you have unexpected guests or if you are just craving something sweet. To speed up the melting of the ice cream I just put it in the microwave for a couple of minutes. Also,  since any flavor of ice cream works in this cake, I am looking forward to trying coffee next.
