If someone tells me someday to choose between an ice-cream and a birthday cake, I don’t think I will ever be able to make that decision! I love ice-cream as much as I love a good birthday cake. That is when I came up with this idea to create a no-churn birthday cake ice-cream. It has the creaminess of a good ice-cream and the colorful cake and confetti sprinkles added to it, give it a birthday cake vibe. This no churn ice-cream is for people who do not own an ice-cream maker and simply wants to make ice-cream at home with no fuss and no time actually. It is a compilation of simple ingredients which you can find in your home or can get from any grocery store near you! This birthday cake ice-cream is perfect for a birthday celebration or just to have it for your mid-night cravings!
WHAT MAKES THIS NO CHURN BIRTHDAY CAKE ICE-CREAM TASTES LIKE A YUMMY BIRTHDAY CAKE BATTER?
Whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk is basis of any no churn ice-cream, whether it is something as simple as chocolate cake ice-cream or as fancy as cherry chocolate ice-cream . Whipping cream is whipped to stiff peaks and sweetened condensed milk is folded in to give you an ice-cream base that doesn’t require any cooking or churning in an ice-cream maker. But it’s those extra ingredients that make it taste like a funfetti cake batter without a cake mix – britannia cake and confetti sprinkles.
INGREDIENTS NEEDED FOR NO CHURN BIRTHDAY CAKE ICE-CREAM
The ingredients for this no churn birthday cake ice-cream cannot be more simplified.
For my no churn, you need to use heavy cream/whipping cream. This means that the cream should have 30% fat content in it. Non-dairy whipping cream is what is easily available in India and that’s why I am using rich’s whipping cream.
Condensed milk or milkmaid is what makes this birthday cake ice-cream sweet. It also helps give this no churn birthday cake ice-cream a smooth texture. The brand I have used is Nestle. It is easily available anywhere and everywhere.
TUTTI FRUTTI CAKE CUBES
For the cake part for this no churn birthday cake ice-cream, I have used britannia’s ready-made tutti frutti cake which I used to love as a kid! I have taken 3 small packets and cubed them and spread it across my ice-cream.
To give this birthday cake ice-cream, more birthday vibe, I have added confetti sprinkles for that colorful rainbow color and also they add a little crunch to this ice-cream. You can also use any other colorful sprinkles if you like!
HOW TO STORE THIS NO CHURN BIRTHDAY CAKE ICE-CREAM
This no churn ice-cream is perfect to make before time, as it can stay in the freezer for 4-5 days. It just needs to be cling film wrapped properly to avoid crystallization. Whenever you need to consume it, make sure to take out from the freezer 5 minutes before, for it to settle in the temperature and to give you a nice and pretty scoop of ice-cream.
