  • Large Mixing Bowl


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 cups half and half (or heavy cream)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup yellow cake mix (heat treated)**
  • 6 TBS rainbow jimmie sprinkles (optional)


  • Combine the milk and sugar in a small pot and heat over medium.
  • Heat it for a few minutes, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved. Let it cool for a few minutes.
  • Add the sugar milk, half and half, vanilla extract, salt and cake mix to a large bowl. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker (make sure you prepared your bowl in the freezer ahead of time). and let it churn until it's thickened like a soft serve ice cream, according to your manufactures instructions. (I mixed mine for 30 minutes.)
  • Add sprinkles and let the ice cream churn for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Scoop the ice cream into a 3QT container, and cover it tightly with a lid, or plastic wrap and foil. Freeze for 6 hours to overnight to make the ice cream scoopable.


**You can heat treat your cake mix by spreading it out on a baking sheet and baking it at 350 for about 5 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 F.
