This Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake is perfect for summer potlucks and get-togethers! When you show up with this fun cake, people will want to devour dessert first! It’s an easy to make recipe!
For the past few weeks, my family has been taking turns being sick. Lemme tell you, it is NOT fun. With six of us, I almost wanted to start sending the sick-o’s into quarantine so we would stop spreading germs around. Geesh! Of course, I caught what my family had and for about 3 days I thought my head was going to explode! It was not fun and I am sure I was not the most pleasant person to be around. My gosh, I couldn’t wait for everyone to finally be over whatever mess was going around our house. With everyone being sick, I didn’t do any baking. And, if you know me, you know I bake … it’s my therapy. Part of the not baking was due to lack of motivation from dealing with everyone’s germs (an my own!) and part of it was no one really likes to eat much when they’re sick. At least I don’t. I just want to sleep and be left alone.
This past weekend, the whole family seemed to be feeling better so Brian and I planned a small little shindig for just our little family of six. We decided to grill some burgers and I knew I wanted to get back into the kitchen and bake something! Since the temperatures are sizzling here in Phoenix, I knew I wanted to make my Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake. Seriously! You use melted ice cream as the liquid in the cake and it is the bomb(dot)com. Personally, I love the fun flavors that Ben & Jerry’s has. My two favorites are Chunky Monkey and Cherry Garcia. For this cake, I used Cherry Garcia – but you can use any flavor you like! You will need 1 pint (or 2 cups) for this recipe!

Melted Ice Cream Bundt Cake
For the cake:
- 1 box 16.5 oz. plain white cake mix

For the frosting:
