Can you bake ice cream?

Now here is an interesting proposition for a science project. Can you bake an ice cream? Of the first response is likely to be of course not. Ice cream belongs in the freezer and not in the oven. Put it in the oven to bake and you would not have any ice cream left but just some flavored milk in the bowl.

But humor me and think about it for a second. If you could actually bake ice cream wouldn’t it make an amazing experiment? Guess what? I am not kidding, you can actually bale ice cream in the oven. Want to know how? Just read on and who knows you may be able to try it out on your own to show how air bubbles can slow the penetration of hot air, resulting in a delicious baked ice-cream cookie treat.

Place some cookies on a baking sheet. Take about 4 eggs and separate the egg whites from the yolks, get your mom to help with this step. Now whisk the egg whites with Castor sugarĀ  till you have mixed them well and stiff. Preheat the oven while you do the egg whisking. Now add a scoop of ice cream into the egg and sugar mix and coat it well.

Place it on top of the cookie in the baking sheet. Bake the ice cream for five minutes and remove the baking sheet from the oven. The ice cream would not have melted and the coating on it would give a nice crunchy outer casing to it. Here’s one tasty science project that you can dig into.
