Ice Cream bread with strawberry compote


A fellow foodie Nithya had posted a dish called Ice Cream bread. Was quite intrigued with the idea and saved the recipe to try later.


Had half a tub of vanilla icecream wasting away in the freezer as all of us were down with the seasonal flu. Made some strawberry compote and was wondering what to pair it with when i remembered this recipe.


Quite an interesting cheat option to a cake with not too much effort.


Strawberry compote
10-15 fresh strawberries
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1) take a pan and heat water and sugar in high
2) when the sugar melts and just starts to thicken, then add the chopped strawberries
3) cook it on low for about 20 mins or till all the juices flow out and the strawberries are soft. Smash half the strawberries
4) add balsamic vinegar and give it a stir. Shut the gas. U will get a thick syrupy consistency.
