Do you ever suddenly remember something you ate as a kid and have to have it again? It happens to me often — usually with cereal. But this time, it was ice cream cake…a sweet Strawberry Ice Cream Cake to be specific.

Growing up I had an ice cream cake from TCBY for every single birthday. I am not sure when it stopped, but I miss them immensely. Who wouldn’t love ice cream and cake combined?? We don’t have any TCBY’s around where I live these days and so I decided to make my own ice cream cake.

I used a store bought Sara Lee pound cake, strawberry ice cream, fresh strawberries and chocolate shell topping to finish it off. The cake takes about 10 minutes to toss together and needs about an hour to harden before you serve it.

I almost skipped the chocolate topping on top, but I am so glad I included it. Getting a bite of chocolate, pound cake, strawberry and ice cream all in one cold bite is perfection.

If you aren’t a fan of frozen strawberries (I love them if they are sliced super thin), you can also substitute the strawberries for Strawberry Ice Cream Topping — you can find it in the grocery store next to all the other ice cream toppings.  It adds plenty of strawberry flavor and you won’t have any frozen berry texture.

Also, if you are up to the extra work, you can absolutely make your own Dark Chocolate Magic Shell topping. All you need is chocolate and coconut oil to make your own!

Strawberry Ice Cream Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 family size sara lee pound cake (found in the frozen dessert department)
  • 4 cups strawberry ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup very thinly sliced fresh strawberries (or strawberry ice cream topping)
  • chocolate shell ice cream topping

Directions:

  1. Slice pound cake into three even slices. Line pound cake metal container with saran wrap.
  2. Place first layer of pound cake back into prepared container. Add two cups ice cream and spread into an even layer. Top with sliced strawberries (or strawberry ice cream topping).
  3. Repeat layers again, then top with remaining slice of pound cake. Wrap tightly in saran wrap and freeze for at least 1 hour.
  4. Remove from freezer and remove saran wrap. Drizzle cake with chocolate shell ice cream topping and quickly top with fresh strawberries as the chocolate shell hardens quickly.
  5. Slice and serve!
Recipe note: to soften your ice cream, I just allow it to rest on the counter for about 15 minutes before I start making my cake!
