Delicious Ice Cream Cake!

I have never seen any of the Indiana Jones movies and in order to stop the relentless mocking at work I went over to my friend's house for dinner, dessert, and Indiana Jones. This was a great opportunity to use my awesome Betty Crocker Bake n'Fill pan, my dad got it for me a few years ago and I absolutely love it!

This time I made a Devil's Food Cake with light mint chocolate chip ice cream and a satiny chocolate glaze and absolutely delicious on a hot day! One of the good things about this cake is that if you leave it in the freezer for awhile you can let it sit out for a little bit and it stays cold enough until you cut it. It was delicious and everybody loved it!

Devil's Food Cake Recipe
(Soruce: allrecipes.com)


1 1/2 cups water
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

- In a large saucepan, bring water to a boil. Remove from the heat.
- Stir in sugar and butter until butter is melted.
- Add eggs and vanilla; mix well.
- Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture and mix thoroughly.

The recipe calls for a greased and floured 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan for 30-35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

(Source: allrecipes.com)


3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


The original directions:

- In a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water, combine chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup. Stir until chips are melted and mixture is smooth, then add vanilla.

My directions:

- Melt the chocolate chips and butter in the microwave 45 seconds to a minute and then stirring and then another 20 seconds until melted.

- Add corn syrup and vanilla and stir until smooth.


- The Satiny Chocolate Glaze recipe is originally for a bundt cake but it is delicious and easy so for this recipe I did the chocolate in stages to see how much I actually needed and I used a bag of chocolate chips and basiclaly did the recipe by 1.5. I then covered the whole cake in it and put it back in the frezzer to harden.
