I've had my cousin in town over the Fourth of July and let me tell you it is rough being a DC tourist. I only joined her for maybe half the excursions but it was a VERY tiring week. There is so much to do! To see! To eat!....but mostly you just walk a mile to all of it. So. Much. Walking.

But to make up for it today I have a rather large order for a bake sale to benefit Farm of the Child in Honduras. A former intern from my office will be volunteering with them for two years, and we're holding a little bake sale to help her raise money to pay her way! She's a wonderful person with such a big heart. I'm excited for her to have such a wonderful opportunity.
Be looking forward to lots of cupcake and cookie posts this month about the wonderful treats I made to benefit Farm of the Child! And without further ado:
Cake Batter Ice Cream
2 large eggs
¾ cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup whole milk
1 1/4 cups yellow cake mix
In a stand mixer combine the eggs and sugar. Beat for one minute until light and fluffy. Gently mix in the cream, milk and cake mix. Do not whip!
Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Pour ice cream into a suitable container and freeze until hardened fully.
