Easy Cake Batter Ice Cream Recipe

I’m not usually a big ice cream eater. It’s fine, but I usually prefer cookies or bars for my empty calories. Until I made this. It’s the best ice cream I’ve ever had.

I made it for my husband because unlike me, he is a ridiculously huge ice cream lover. It’s his thing. He loves, loves, loves ice cream. We don’t tend to keep it in the house (his request) because he can’t trust himself around it.

However, he goes to the 24-hour Rite-Aid at 3am on ice cream runs at least four times a week. They have an in-store ice cream counter and he’s best friends with the graveyard shift employees. So I decided to give him an early Father’s Day present in the form of pink sprinkles and creamy, homemade ice cream. I just didn’t think I’d be the one falling in love with it.

It’s full of chopped Golden Oreos, sprinkles, and tastes like Funfetti Cake Batter. No cake mix involved. The flavoring secrets are a bit of almond extract, in conjunction with vanilla extract.

This is a no-cook recipe. It’s a major time saver to avoid standing around whisking eggs, cream, and sugar together, then having to wait for them to cool. The solution? A can of sweetened condensed milk. There are only two required ingredients to make it. Sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream.

Nor do you need an ice cream maker. I just recently got this Breville Smart Scoop Ice Cream Compressor from Sur La Table, but prior to that didn’t have one, and many of you may not have one either. This recipe can be made in an ice cream maker if you have one (details in the recipe card below), but it’s not necessary.

This ice cream is soft, fluffy, and light. Light in texture, not in calories. Between the sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, half a bottle of sprinkles, and two dozen Oreos, it’s not exactly diet food. But so worth it.

The flavor resembles sweetened, frozen whipped cream. This is not a bad thing! If you like buttercream frosting, real whipped cream or Cool Whip, or sweetened condensed milk, this is the ice cream for you. Since I love all those things, it’s definitely the ice cream for me.

It’s ridiculously creamy and rich. It’s like no ice cream I’ve ever tried. Maybe that’s why I love it. There’s an abundance of cookies and sprinkles in every bite. The sprinkles stay a bit crunchy while the cookies soften just slightly after being soaked in the rich, luscious, cream bath.

Although I used almond and vanilla extract, Golden Oreos, and sprinkles, my wheels are already turning with ideas of chocolate, peanut butter, Nutella, Cookie Butter, and cookie dough.

Cake Batter Ice Cream Ingredients 

For this Golden Oreo ice cream, you’ll need:  

  • Golden Oreos or vanilla-flavored sandwich cookies
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond extract
  • Heavy whipping cream 
  • Sprinkles

How to Make No-Churn Ice Cream 

To make the cake batter ice cream, simply whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Then, fold in a mixture of sweetened condensed milk, along with the almond and vanilla extracts.

Note that fold means be gentle. Don’t stir like you’re mashing potatoes. Take your time so that you don’t deflate the puffiness. If you have an ice cream maker, the machine does this folding step for you.

Gently stir in cookies, sprinkles, and freeze it for at least 6 hours. I dare you not to lick the bowl!

Tips for the Best No-Churn Ice Cream

Normally real vanilla extract is the way to go when making homemade ice cream, but to create that classic, nostalgic, bakery-style cake batter taste, use clear imitation vanilla extract for this recipe. Clear imitation is found next to real vanilla in the grocery store, usually for about one-third of the price. Trust me, it really does make a difference in the flavor of this cake batter ice cream! 

When buying the ingredients for this ice cream, double check that you’re getting sweetened condensed milk and not evaporated milk. They’re two totally different milk products! I just wanted to mention that since I’ve accidentally purchased one instead of the other countless times. 

Lastly, the ice cream freezes solid, but after 5 minutes at room temperature it’s easily scoopable. It’s similar to storebought ice cream and doesn’t turn ridiculously rock hard, an issue that can plague homemade ice cream.

More Frozen Treats: 

  • Chocolate Cake Batter Milkshake — Drinking a whole chocolate cake batter milkshake sure beats the one or two measly licks of the batter that’s on the beaters after making a chocolate cake. This fast, easy, and very satisfying milkshake is perfect for anyone who loves cake batter and always wants one more taste! 
  • No-Churn Bourbon Salted Caramel Ice Cream — It’s ridiculously creamy and subtly flavored with bourbon, and ribbons of salted caramel are woven throughout. The crunchy Nutter Butter cookies add a pop of peanut butter flavor and lots of texture, while the chocolate chunks round out this rich, indulgent treat.
  • Cookies and Cream Mocha Milkshake — Between the little bits of cookies which add texture, the mocha undertones, and the sweet creamy ice cream, my family went nuts for these milkshakes. 
  • Brownie Cookie Dough Ice Cream Sandwiches — Cookie dough ice cream is flanked between two rich and fudgy brownies, creating an enhanced and more decadent version of a classic ice cream sandwich.
  • Copycat Wendy’s Frosty — This Copycat Wendy’s Frosty Recipe is low-fat and so easy to whip up! It tastes like a lighter chocolate milkshake, but it’s still super creamy and delicious.

No-Churn Cake Batter Ice Cream with Golden Oreos

This Cake Batter Ice Cream is packed with sprinkles and Golden Oreos. It’s rich, creamy, and fluffy, but it’s made without an ice cream maker!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Chilling Time 6 hours
Total Time 6 hours 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 24 Golden Oreos or vanilla-flavored sandwich cookies, coarsely chopped
  • one 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream*
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles

Instructions

To Make No-Churn Ice Cream:

  1. Chop the cookies; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add sweetened condensed milk, vanilla, almond extract, and stir to combine; set aside.
  3. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or large mixing bowl and hand mixer; or lots of elbow grease doing it by hand), whip 2 cups heavy cream to very stiff peaks, about 5 minutes on high power.
  4. Gently add about half the whipped cream to the sweetened condensed milk mixture, and fold the cream in gently. Fold means turn the mixture over with a spatula from the bottom of the bowl up, rotate the bowl, repeat until the mixture is homogenous. The goal is to keep all that fluffy cream you just made as fluffy as possible. Take your time and be gentle. When you get the first half of the cream folded in and combined, add the remaining cream, and fold it until until mixture is smooth.
  5. Add the cookies, sprinkles, and gently fold them in to distribute evenly.
  6. Transfer ice cream mixture to a freezer-safe 2-quart container with a lid or freezer-safe bowl that can be covered with plasticwrap. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours, or until solid. Ice cream takes about 5 minutes to come up to room temperature to scoop it out without having to wrestle with a rock. Ice cream will keep airtight in the freezer for up to 3 months.

If Using an Ice Cream Maker:

  1. If you are using an ice cream maker, steps 1, 2, 3 are the same. Skip steps 4 and 5. Instead, add 4 cups heavy cream to the sweetened condensed milk mixture, and stir to combine. Step 6 is the same. For step 7, follow processing directions on your ice cream maker, noting to chill the mixture if necessary before churning.

Notes

*If using an ice cream maker, use 4 cups (1 quart) heavy whipping cream.

  1. I’ve made your Funfetti cake batter ice cream twice now and both times it was delicious!  The only thing I did different was added 2 cups of half and half to the mixture.  I used an ice cream maker to make mine.  YUMMY!

    Rating: 5
    1. Glad to hear you’ve made this twice and it’s been delicious! Great to hear you are able to use your ice cream maker, too!

  2. Sounds. Sooo Yummy! I can’t wait to make it this weekend. Gotta make a imitation vanilla run..along with sprinkles cookies etc…☺️😉👍🏼😋

  3. My hubby is a huge Oreo funfetti fan but he’s very lactose intolerant :/ I wanted to make this for his birthday which is actually on Christmas so it stands out from all the pumpkin and pecan desserts, and I was wondering if you think this could be made with coconut cream instead of the heavy cream (because you can’t buy heavy cream lactose free) and coconut condensed milk? I’m sure t would still taste great, I’m just worried about how it will freeze…Thank you!

    1. I am worried as you said also, about how it will freeze. I feel like there is something in the dairy/lactose/milk proteins that is going to be necessary for it to set up fully and freeze properly but I bet if you googled recipes for coconut milk ice cream and sort of cross referenced those with what I did with the flavors, you can come up with something similar to mine.

  4. Hello Mrs. Averie!!

    I’m a 14 year old girl and an absolute HUGE fan of all your recipes!!! I can’t wait to try this out, but I have a few questions:

    1. Would it be alright to make this without the vanilla and almond extract? I’m currently out and my dad can’t wait for me to make this, so would it be alright if I omitted them? Would the absence of it greatly affect the taste?

    2. Is it ok to use the just the ordinary (dark/black) oreos instead of the golden ones?

    Thank you so much for the amazing recipes!!! 

  5. This lookes sooo amazing I decided to try making double receipe for my Grandaughters 19th birthday, and since my ive cream maker was out of commision it was perfect. It turned out that using 48 cookies made it so sweet we couldn’t eat it. Any ideas on how to tone it down a bit and save all those yummy ingredients? or is it destined for the garbage. (hope not) Thank you for all your great ideas!

    1. I’ve never doubled it but yes, it IS sweet ice cream, but maybe doubling the cookies was just a little much. You could always mix a half scoop of this in with your normal vanilla ice cream, and eat as a combo and that will tone this down a bit for you. Or a sprinkle of salt sometimes can counteract sweetness.

  6. Made this yesterday it is by far the most amazing ice cream I have ever had!!! I can’t believe how fast and easy it was to make either! Thank you Thank you Thank you for this awesome recipe!!!

    1. Thanks for trying it & I agree with you that it’s pretty much the most amazing ice cream I’ve ever had and I’m not even ‘that’ into ice cream. Glad you’re a big fan!

  7. I just saw this on pinterest, and although I don’t have golden oreos, I’m just going to make it with sprinkles. This pregnant lady will be very happy in 6 hours :)

    1. It’s *so good*!!! Enjoy! Do you have any random Xmas cookies laying around? Chop those up and toss them in. Anything you have from graham crackers to old cookies to random candy bar bits leftover from Halloween…just throw it all in. It can’t hurt, can only help :) LMK what you think!

      1. It is sooo good!!! I have to make sure to limit myself :) I ended up just doing sprinkles and I still loved it…just thinking of how I could add peppermint instead of vanilla/almond and maybe try that too! It’s so easy that any mix in would be fabulous!!! Thanks so much! None of your recipes have disappointed yet!

      2. So glad you like it, even with just sprinkles! Try it with cookies sometime – you will be in heaven! Omg SUCH a huge difference! The texture, flavors, oh You HAVE to! :) And yes to peppermint this time of year, especially!

  8. Just entered for your awesome giveaway with the cute little food processors (perfect for my tiny college apartment!!) & definitely making this for my not only ice cream obsessed but CAKE BATTER ice cream obsessed boyfriend! Can’t wait to get off work and get all of the ingredients! Love that you don’t need an ice cream maker! Definitely on my wish list but not on a college budget! :)

  9. I tried this recipe both ways, and the no-ice cream- maker way was definitely better. The ice cream maker version did not have as much flavor, and it was not as fluffy after freezing. Nonetheless, excellent recipe! So much better than store bought, and with such simple ingredients. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Wow, that’s great to know you tried it both ways and preferred the NON ice cream maker version! More power to all of us who don’t have one (or don’t want to lug it out) to simply make the non-ice cream maker version! Love it when the easier/simpler/cheaper ways or methods or things turn out to be the better one.

      I have another ice cream recipe coming up either this week or next. Can’t decide when I should post it. But it’s crazzzzzy good. Stay tuned :)

  10. ahh summer, let us raise our spoons/cones to ice cream! have you tried making protein fluff ice cream with casein protein powder? love all ur recipes, lookin forward to what else you whip up ;)

  11. Nice bowl ;) And this ice cream looks pretty darn good too! I just had my first golden oreo a few weeks ago. Very tasty!

    1. Thought you might like that bowl :)

      And the Golden Oreos soften slightly over time from the ice cream…oh, so good! :)

  12. Ooh, ooh! I made your ice cream this week!! I didn’t use sprinkles (the men in the house are unfortunately not fans…why?!) and I was a little unsure about it before I put it in the freezer, but once it firmed up?! It really is pretty magical. The almond flavoring balances so well with the imitation vanilla (I felt like an imposter buying that, by the way!). Definitely yummy. :)

    1. I am so glad you made this and your men are crazy for not liking sprinkles, but hey, more for us who do, right :) Anyway, thanks for LMK you tried this and coming back to comment! I appreciate it, Dana!

  13. I love sooo many things about this. The sprinkles, of course, but mostly because it doesn’t require an ice cream maker…totally genius! Looks amazing, my friend!

    1. Girl it’s insanely good. Don’t even make it :) But yea, you should make it! Great to hear from you and hope your job eases up, soon!

  14. Holy shizz. My mouth dropped open in disbelief when I saw that this luscious, insanely creamy treat was made without an ice cream maker (yesssss! Because I have yet to shell out the money for one) and with so few ingredients. I need to try this. I’ve been meaning to make ice cream since last summer but have never gotten around to it. You’re inspiring me to take the plunge. Your photos are gorgeous as always, Averie.

  15. hahahaha i am like your hubby love love love ice cream…thank goodness i don’t have a quick mart by me! i am so going to love the golden oreo cookie crumble pieces…those are the ones I will dig out and not share with the kids..how awful of me. LOL

    1. As mom’s we usually get the leftovers, the stuff no one else wants, the rejects; so every now and then picking out the perfect parts is totally OK!!!

  16. That is so colorful and beautiful! I have never made ice cream with the cream and sweetened condensed milk, though I have seen it before and I NEED to try it. It looks so easy and my husband is also an ice cream addict. In fact that is what he ate for breakfast. Oy. Men.

    Definitely pinning this!

    1. Thanks for pinning and it’s so ridic easy. Perfect for the ice cream addict in your life!

  17. This is a party in a bowl! What a great ice cream. I actually just bought an ice cream maker. But I guess I could have made some great ice cream without it! I’ll have to try this soon. Pinned!

  18. Cake batter, sprinkles and golden oreos together in ice cream?!? It’s a dream come true! Stunning photos!

  19. This looks absolutely insane!! My husband is an ice cream nut too. It’s such a weakness for him. He would LOVE this. We recently had Blue Moon ice cream with the cake batter Oreos in it. SO GOOD! Pinning this!

  20. Isn’t this such an easy way to make ice cream?! I was floored at the ease when I first tried it myself. And here I thought I needed to drop some serious cash on an ice cream maker and rock salt! I mean, making this ice cream is basically like saving your money.

  21. Oh how I wish I didn’t LOVE ice cream with a passion that borders on obsession. My thighs would be much happier in their skinny jeans haha. But I do love it, and I could eat 5 bowls of this amazing version you came up with!

  22. This sounds so good. I’m a sucker for anything with almond extract. P.S. I just got your cookbook. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. You did an amazing job and I can’t decide what to make first? I’m thinking the peanut butter cupcakes with some chocolate frosting?

  23. My weakness! On one hand, I applaud you for sharing such a delicious sounding treat, but on the other hand, I am totally going to make this and eat it all up in seconds! Haha- but seriously!

  24. we’ve got two things in common: men who love ice cream and a commitment to not keep it in the house :)
    Awesome recipe, can’t wait to try it!!

  25. A neat trick my grandmother used when making no-churn ice cream was adding 1 tablespoon of bourbon to the condensed milk mixture. The alcohol stops it from freezing so hard.

  26. I am so excited about this recipe!!! I’m totally going to try it gluten free :-) Oh and I about died laughing that your hubby goes on 3AM ice cream runs!! Best friends with the graveyard shift workers…hilarious!

      1. I still haven’t made this… and miraculously, I still have most of two packages of Golden Oreos left. (Yep, I bought two… I knew if I bought only one package, I might not end up with enough cookies for the recipe). Hoping to get to it over the long weekend!

    1. You could and it would be lower in fat, but it wouldn’t taste like ice cream in the real, whipped cream, creamy luscious ice cream way. It would taste like Cool Whip. I would make it as I wrote it and just realize it’s a treat and savor it :)

      1. FYI, I used the two cups of whipping cream and then folded in two tubs of cool whip lite, it is still VERY good and went further, meaning less calories per serving…

  27. I’m like you, generally I prefer a cookie or brownie or some such over ice cream (and the boyfriend LOOOVES it and pretty much requires that I always have some in the freezer for him, and I use this same method of making ice cream for him :P) This totally looks bonkers, crazy, delicious, amazing!

    1. Girl it’s the best ice cream Ive ever had and if your BF already likes ice cream, this will win you major brownie points and it’s as simple as whipping some cream!

  28. Yeah I am pretty much crying because that funfetti cake batter looks like something I would like to dive head first into, right now!

  29. I love sprinkles! This is looks so good! I just made funfetti cookies today for my kids but really is there an adult that doesn’t love sprinkles :).

    1. I’ve been wanting to make funfetti cookies – there are so many recipes online and I have some ideas of my own. But I really want to make your soft-frosted sugar cookies! The pink frosting ones. They always catch my eye!

  30. Averie your pictures get me every time. AMAZING colors
    oh, and I WISH I didn’t like ice cream :)

  31. A dream come true ice cream recipe, Averie! Just beautiful. I adore Golden Oreos. The perfect mix-in for ice cream! Totally fabulous that you paired them with a quick and easy recipe for peeps. BRAVO! Already pinned to group boards at Pinterest! xo

  32. There are so many awesome things about this recipe, how do I list them all? I love that this is hardly any ingredients and is so incredibly easy to whip together. My family is so into ice cream right now and everyone loves different flavors and things so throwing different things into this would be a breeze! I am totally going to make this for them. Love that your hubby has an intimate relationship with the graveyard shift peeps at the local ice cream spot! :-)

    1. and it’s not even an ice cream ‘spot’ – it’s…RiteAid. You know, what everyone thinks of when they think of ice cream :)

      hardly any ingredients and is so incredibly easy to whip together = YES! And since you guys already like ice cream, you have to LMK if you make this what you think!

  33. Ohmygosh. This is such a great recipe, especially for college kids (like me!) who are still stuck in dorms! SO easy to make and SO good!

  34. This looks absolutely delicious Averie! I am so glad it doesnt involve an ice cream maker! I would have hated not being able to make it ASAP!

  35. Thanks to the good intentions of a non-baking friend, I happen to have a HUGE bottle of clear, imitation vanilla!! :D Maybe I can put it to use after all!

    p.s. These ice cream photos make me happy!!

    1. Anything funfetti or cake batter-flavored, use imitation. A little trick I learned from reading Christina Tosi/Momofuku!

  36. Oh Averie, this ice cream looks phenomenal! Hehe that is too funny about your hubby and his 3 am runs to Rite Aid!
    My ice cream maker works great but it is heavy to lug out and there are so many times I forget to take it out the night before.
    I love ice cream and your photos are making me wish I could have a scoop of this:) Thank you so much for sharing a new no cook recipe that doesn’t require an ice cream maker, I think I’ll be trying this method out soon:)

  37. I am so happy my boyfriend left the room before I opened this post or I would be in the kitchen making this. He is a die hard funfetti cake fan, and I don’t eat icecream, but this looks incredible!

    1. Lol too funny! Well, even if he had, it’s a 10 min recipe, tops, just whip the cream, fold things in, freeze!

  38. Oh man – this looks sooooo good! You hit it right with the golden oreos & sprinkles…. yum yum yum.

    You’re pictures have the ability, more than any other food blog I’ve been to, to want to eat! And I am a healthy eater so it’s a crazy thing.

    1. I take that as a huge compliment and it means I’ve done my job :) Thanks for saying that!

  39. I love that you don’t need an ice cream maker for this recipe – I have no place for another kitchen gadget. This ice cream looks awesome – I’ll be keeping the recipe handy!

  40. Yum, what’s not to like?! I sure could go for a big ‘ol bowl of this right now!

  41. WOW! Talk about an inviting dessert. Like you, I am not a huge ice cream fan, but I don’t think I could stop myself from inhaling this. Bonus for not needing an ice cream maker, which I don’t have and don’t have room for.

  42. Your husband is too cute – being friends with the graveyard shift employees at Rite-Aid. Their ice cream is pretty damn good. And so does this. There’s so many goodies in this – Jason would love it. He’s a huge ice cream lover like your hubby!

    1. Scott tells me that the Rite Aid ice cream is good. He could go there and buy a little pint of Haggen Daaz or whatever but he gets the RiteAid stuff!

  43. I have been mourning the loss of my ice cream maker all week. I am so glad to see an ice cream recipe in which I don’t have to use it!

  44. Averie, that looks so yum.

    I often see this marvelous looking flecked bowl in your fantastic food photos; what is that?

    1. I have a few of them from Anthropologie. I love the bowls for photography. A great size and shape. Thanks for noticing!

  45. I love using this base for no-machine ice cream–it’s getting so toasty here in Southern California these days! Sounds like a splendid excuse for this :) thanks, Averie!

    1. It’s still chill in metro San Diego but I know if I was in other parts of the county or inland, it wouldn’t be so coastal breezy :)

  46. Sounds amazing! Now, I’m totally the ice cream/froyo girl in the house. My fiance doesn’t like it and doesn’t eat it (except when he is mindlessly grazing), so when I make ice cream, I usually end up eating it all. Very dangerous. But sprinkles are always my topping of choice, and I much prefer the golden Oreos, so this looks like perfection to me.
    Oh, and your husband is friends with the ice cream counter? Last week when I walked into TCBY the girl looked at me and said “Cookie dough?!” and then turned to the girl scooping and said “put an extra piece of cookie dough on top for her, she loves it” … yup!

    1. The employees there know him by name! We walked in there together last week for some chapstick for me and everyone knows him…I’m like…whoa :) I love that story you just told. CLASSIC!!! I love my cookie dough, too. Making cookie dough ice cream may need to happen :)

  47. Hi Averie! We love making ice cream (we finally bought the ice cream maker 2 years ago)! This sounds like something whole family will enjoy (especially funfetti loving kids!). The colorful ice cream definitely makes everyone happy and cheerful. I really like your detailed explanations and tips on each step. They make a huge difference in result at the end. Thanks for sharing – pinned! :)

    1. Thanks for pinning and glad you like the descriptions! And I am still in love with those cherry bars of yours. So gorgeous! :) Thanks for stopping by!

  48. If it has funfetti cake batter in the title, I’m all ears! Going to save this to the Confetti recipes – never can have enough!

    I made some frozen cake batter squares last week with golden oreo’s and I was really surprised by how well it froze and how good it tasted.

    Thanks for sharing this!

    1. frozen cake batter squares last week with golden oreo’s = that sounds creative and wonderful!

      If you like flavors like that, you’re gonna love this ice cream!

  49. Love it. It’s like Cookies and Cream, Vanilla-style. I haven’t ever seen that beast of a compressor, nor do I actually know what the difference is between it and an ice cream maker, but if it makes ice cream that looks like that, DANG.

    My niece, who LOVES ice cream, is thinking about getting a job at Dairy Queen. I couldn’t resist and I have a feeling she won’t either. I think she’ll end up hating ice cream.

  50. I love ice cream! I have been thinking about buying an ice cream maker but there really is just no room in my NYC kitchen! This recipe looks simply amazing!

  51. See, I’d take ice cream and cookies (even better when combined) over cake or pie or brownies. I was in heaven when my sister worked for Baskin Robbins! I’ve never made my own ice cream though. I do recall my grandparents making peach all the time when I was a kid.

  52. Averie, love this! The recipe is simple! I’ve already have everything…always keep heavy cream in the fridge, and the oreos were on a massive sale yesterday…so I’m set!
    Too funny what your husband does in the middle of the night. I don’t know what it is about the husbands getting up in the middle of the night…mine will have a full on meal! Usually, 3 hot dogs with the works! (I’m surprised he’s not a chubby hubby!) Pinning this and printing out right now! So pretty too. I just had an idea…I definitely want to make this for my annual ice cream social I host every year! Thanks Averie!

    1. I love that you keep a well-stocked fridge and pantry. Me too :) And I can put away my own fair share of midnight snacks but they’re usually cookies or brownies; never hot dogs or even ice cream. Although this one will be dangerous to have around! LMK if you try it!

  53. the photos alone are heavenly! i just made a lemon buttermilk ice cream for my mister…this is an ice cream for me…i think i may need to make this and soon, thank you for sharing1

  54. Thank you for making an ice cream that doesn’t require an ice cream maker! I don’t have one yet. It’s on my list. I love ice cream any time, anywhere.

  55. Great job Averie, this sounds awesome! Cake batter seems to be all the rage lately (I just had a drumstick yesterday that was birthday cake flavored and it was awesome). Definitely a must try recipe!

    1. Oh wow, that’s interesting! I never buy ice cream and it’s the one dessert-ey item I am pretty unaware of the flavors, offerings, etc. It’s usually my husband’s domain :) Your drumstick sounds amazing!

  56. I have an ice cream maker but it’s a pain to get out and use at times. I always appreciate ice cream recipes that are super easy and don’t require the machine. What a great early Father’s Day present!

    1. What you said about your machine seems to be what so many people say – this is so fast and easy. Way too easy :)

  57. I loveee cake batter ice cream – in fact I have an unopened carton in the freezer right now. I’m waiting to open it because I know I’ll eat it all right away. And I’m not talking a pint, I’m talking the used to be a half gallon but it’s shrinking size carton.

    I’ve made cake batter ice cream but not with the sweetened condensed/whipped cream base and I simply added cake mix and sprinkles. Would love to try your version – perhaps with birthday cake oreos???

    1. I never buy ice cream and it’s the one dessert item I am pretty unaware of the flavors, offerings, etc and had no idea that it even existed…seriously! I could have eaten a half gallon of this stuff at once. It was that good. My hubs did about a pint and a half in a sitting :)

  58. This looks like so much fun! I totally can’t trust myself with ice cream either. It’s my absolute favourite summer dessert. I wonder if I could make a dairy-free version of this by whipping coconut cream.

    1. Wow – I bet you could! If you whipped the coconut cream to stiff peaks. Then there’s the sweet cond milk issue – you could likely skip that and whisk together eggs and sugar or doctor up more coconut cream and make some of it really sweet to mimic SCM. Lots of ways to go with it though! Lmk if you try anything!

  59. That is so funny about your husband running out at 3 am for ice cream – that’s dedication! :) We’re the same way around here – my husband loves it, I usually take or leave it. But this one sounds so good, and you know I love anything with sprinkles! :) And I LOVE that it doesn’t require an ice cream maker, because we don’t have one! I’ll have to make this for my husband for a summer treat!!

    1. Since you dont have an ice cream maker and your hubs loves ice cream, you will score major brownie points for making this for him!

  60. I’m not typically much of an ice cream fan either but sometimes I get an intense craving. This ice cream looks so cravable with the Oreos and sprinkles.

  61. Mmmmm…this sounds and looks wonderful! I love recipes that don’t require the use of an ice-cream maker. I really don’t want to buy one because it’ll just be another awkward kitchen applicance that has to be stored, so this recipe will be perfect!

  62. Looks delicious and I love that it can be made with or without an ice cream maker.

  63. I can’t be trusted around ice cream either. I keep it out of the house just to be on the safe side. I love the stuff! There’s no way I could resisit this creamy treasure. Yum!

  64. Averie, it looks so good!! And I have to tell ya, I love how creamy this ice cream turned out. And the golden oreos inside add much more creaminess (well, the filling does!). I loved the extra sweetness from the Oreos. And the sprinkles! Nice touch. This is the happiest looking ice cream I’ve ever seen. I honestly couldn’t believe how easy this was to make or why I’ve waited so long to make it! I think my next batch will be peanut butter ;)

    1. PB would just take this stuff over the edge. My wheels were and are turning. I have quite a few ideas from cookie butter to PB to Nutella to salted caramel…I mean, limitless, really :)

  65. Oh my!! You know I love ice cream and especially on that requiers no whisking of eggs! Hooray!

    This look incredible! The sprinkles and the oreos. Whoa baby! I love it!

    1. you have so many ice cream posts and if you ever try this type of ice cream base, LMK what you think of it compared to the full whisking, cooking, etc routine!

  66. I think I’m in the middle on the ice cream vs. cookies/bars debate — I’ll take either, depending on my mood. :) Love that you can make this ice cream without an ice cream maker! I’ve done this sort of version before — whipped cream, fold in the other ingredients — and I honestly prefer it over the ice cream maker! It always seems creamier.

    1. Creamy wasn’t even the word for this. It was heaven-sent, out of this world creamy. Like nothing I’ve ever even had! Glad to know you’ve done the same and get the same results!

  67. Oh my goodness…YUM! Golden Oreos are pretty much the only cookie I actually buy. Breyer’s makes a Golden Oreo flavor but I’m not a fan of their ice cream, so I will definitely be making this one instead. I was actually going to make a Golden Oreo milkshake this evening, but I hear this ice cream calling my name instead!!

    1. MAKE THIS! I never buy ice cream and so didn’t even know that Breyer’s had a flavor similar. If you at all like golden oreos and ice cream, this is going to put you over the edge. I am not even a big fan and it’s the best ice cream Ive ever had!

  68. YAY!!! I have yet to buy an ice cream maker…. I know I know.. I’ll get to it… but in the mean time…

  69. Wow, wow, wow is about all I can say to this! Love homemade ice cream, but I love eeeeasy homemade ice creams like this one the best! I just love how simple it is. :)

    1. Too easy. Now that I have this little whipped cream method in my back pocket, it’s almost too dangerous that I know it! :)

  70. I am a big ice cream lover (I know I mention banana soft serve often) so anything creamy and frozen is appealing year around. I don’t have an ice cream maker, but I freeze just about anything and then grind it up in the vita mix. This looks so easy and rich— with lots of flavor options! I do get interested in ice cream makers every now and then–what do you think of your Breville?

    1. If you love ice cream, you have to try this! It’s like taking banana softserve and improving upon it by a hundred fold. I cannot even tell you how good this stuff is, Paula! And like I said in the post, I’m not even a big ice cream person normally!

  71. Love, love, love this recipe! I need some Golden Oreos immediately. Dream. Come. True.

    1. Or any kind of Oreo, Nilla wafers, graham crackers, leftover cookies – there is nothing ‘wrong’ to put in the mix!

  72. I’ve never made ice-cream myself but this seems to be relatively easy and so good so I may give it a try :D

    1. It’s the easiest thing ever. Whip some cream, stir in sweet cond milk, add-ins, and freeze!

  73. I’ve had this type of ice cream before but without the oreos- it’s delicious!

  74. I’ve been secretly avoiding pulling out my ice cream maker because it’s so much darn work to go through all the steps of cooking and whisking, etc. I love ice cream, but the time it takes to make it is a bit discouraging. I cannot believe how simple this recipe is, and with so many delicious treats mixed in! This is just the motivation I needed, Averie!

    1. I know…so many steps. Whisking, cooking, cooling, then all the pieces and parts to wash; kettles to clean. You have really got to want it. This is so easy! Lmk if you try it!

  75. Awesome dessert, Averie. Gald your husband likes ice cream so your readers get the benefit of the recipe =)

  76. Thank you thank you thank you for this recipe. We made a frozen yogurt with my friend Erin and now I see beautiful ice creams on her blog, but she has an ice cream maker. I don’t and it made me sad. But now I can make something icy and delicious without it :)

    1. It’s insanely good and you can be eating ice cream in a matter of hours. LMK if you try it!
