Cake Batter Ice Cream

Soooo…remember when my husband and I made a list of people we would want to see on The Nerdist? Well, the higher-ups at BBC America and The Nerdist must have been reading our minds because here are the guests that are scheduled to appear on the Christmas Eve episode of the show: Wil Wheaton, Nathan FillionKumail NanjianiSimon Pegg, and David Tennant.


Now If they could somehow get Catherine Tate on the show, that would make it an 11.

You know what else is an 11? Ice cream.

Funfetti cake batter ice cream.

    • Hi! No, you don’t cook this at all. If you are hesitant about using regular raw eggs, feel free to use pasteurized eggs. This recipe is based on the Ben & Jerry’s method of making ice cream. Have a lovely day!
