  2. Mix self-rising flour and vanilla ice cream together until smooth. Spoon batter in muffin cups, filling them 3/4 full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

when i mixed this recipe it seemed too dry.more like biscuit mix. i used: 2c self rise 1 pint ic 1/3 c milk this made the dough more like a cake. as for axtras i added some of those big soft sprinkles and it turned the cupcakes into a party! fun! warning: these taste kinda like biscuit/scone more than cupcake but if you dont like things super sweet they are awesome! definatelly using these next time i make strawberry shortcake!

Really cool! Absolutely scrumptious, except for one problem: too hard to make. It took me so long to get this right. I would only suggest trying this recipe if you're professional.

This is a simple, delicious recipe that the kids can help with. I add all kinds of different fruit or chocolate chips to offer a variety. YUMMY!!!!

Only 2 ingredients.. this is amazing! I've made these muffins exactly as the recipe says 3 times, and every time they turn out perfectly.. perfectly browned and crunchy on the outside, and very moist on the inside. They're great when you want a really good plain muffin without the sweetness of other muffins.

This is a really quick, easy recipe. Note: These muffins aren't fluffy. They're pretty dense. They are tasty though.

Hmm. I'm not sure about these. They are only 2 ingredients (well, if u have self rising flour; of course I didn't. The sub is 1 1/2 tspns baking powder & 1/2 tspn salt per 1 cup of flour.)so I have no intention of being too critical. They did remind me of scones in appearance although not in taste (& there is actually a very similar recipe on here for ice cream scones) as they were soft and chewy on the inside. I'm wondering if it was the ice cream I used; its homemade and perhaps not even ice cream (I forgot to check what id labeled it b4 dumping it out of my container--its either ice cream or frozen yogurt) or just how they are supposed to turn out. Would be good with jelly or peanut butter--or both! Thanks for the recipe!
