Cake Batter Ice Cream

Think back to the time when you were a bit and your mom was making a cake, brownies, or cookies.  What was the best part about mom making these things?  The batter or dough!  What is it about licking every drop of batter off of a spatula?  When no one is looking and I'm in the kitchen, I still do it!  I love when my mom would be making cookies, and my brothers and I would just happen to meander into the kitchen around the time the batter was done to "get a drink."  When she wasn't looking, we'd snag some of whatever was in that bowl.  It's the best.  I'm sur[rised she didn't beat us with the nearest cooking utensil every time we did that.  Anywho... this cake batter ice cream tastes just like cake batter.  It's so wonderful.  I had to to share this ice cream with a few different sets of people because if I didn't, I would have polished it all off myself.  The recipe says that you can use any cake mix.  Oh, the possibilities!  I was thinking of red velvet, funfetti, devil's food, and tons of others.  There are so many possibilities here.  Forget cheese whiz- get crazy with the cake batter!
Cake Batter Ice Cream
source: Worldwide Ward Cookbook- Secret Recipes

1 c whole milk, very cold
3/4 c sugar
2 c heavy cream, very cold
1 t vanilla
2/3 c white cake mix

Place the freezer bowl for your ice cream maker into the freezer.  Whisk together the milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved.  Add the sugar and vanilla.  Mix well.  Add the cake mix.  When I did this, I actually added some of the cream mixture to the cake mix and whisked that together until smooth.  Then I added the whisked cake mixture to the rest of the cream mixture.  I think that will be a better way to prevent lumps from forming after adding the cake mix.  2 cents.

Add the mixture to your freezer bowl and freeze according to the directions for your ice cream maker.  I let mine run for about 30 minutes.  Pour the mixture in a bowl and let it continue to freeze until you're ready to devour, yes devour, it.
