Replace The Cookie Layer With Cake For Softer, More Luxurious Ice Cream Sandwiches

Replace the Cookie Layer With Cake For Softer, More Luxurious Ice Cream Sandwiches

Many ice cream sandwiches usually use cookies or wafers as the outer layer. The results are delicious, of course, but Food52 shows us that using a thin layer of cake instead can make a just-as-tasty ice cream sandwich that will remind you a lot of those store-bought (but incredible) ones from your childhood.

There's just something about the way the soft, chocolate-y out layer of those generic ice cream sandwiches clings to your fingers, and how biting into doesn't cause the ice cream to gush out the other end. The secret, according to Food52, is to pour a thin layer (no more than 1/2-inch) of chocolate cake batter into two sheet pans and bake them at 180 degrees Celsius for 10-15 minutes. The full recipe for the cake batter is found at the link below (though we assume that a quick chocolate cake mix would be ok, too).

To fully recreate the store-bought ice cream sandwiches of your childhood, Food52 suggests going with the generic vanilla ice cream for the lighter, airy texture.
