I too love Coldstone's and Maggie Moo's cake batter ice cream. I used skim milk in place of whole milk and fat free half & half in place of the cream. I also used 1.5 cups of cake mix and only 1/2 cup sugar. Awesome :)

My DH said this is better than Cold Stone (and I agree!) We didn't do anything fancy - we used 2% milk instead of whole milk and vanilla cake mix. Thanks, SStemp! UPDATE - we've made this several times, and it's good with both vanilla or chocolate cake mix, Oatmeal Cookie mix (just like Cold Stone's version) or brownie mix. It's fun to mix it up and try different mixes, and we've never been disappointed! We've also used both 1% and 2% milk with no difference in taste.

Quick, easy, delicious. This was very sweet as written, but I have a crazy sweet tooth! The second time I made it I used lower fat ingredients - 1 cup of half and half, two cups of So Delicious brand coconut milk (much lower fat than canned). I also added two teaspoons of vodka, which worked well. With a lower fat content, the alcohol helps keep it from freezing into a solid brick once you place it in the freezer.

WOW! This is better than cold stone! I made it with skim milk and heavy cream. Next time I think I am going to try skim milk and half and half and using the blueberry mix that someone else suggested. I think I will cut the sugar down a little also. It was very sweet.

Update: I used half n half and whole milk and 2 pkgs of carnation instant breakfast and about 2 c of strawberries pureed to make strawberry ice cream. It was delicious!

Used only and only 1% milk (instead of milk AND cream) Turned out just great. I made this recipe twice. Once for company, following sugar amount exactly and it was overly sweet. Second time I used Splenda instead of sugar - only to taste, not full amount. It turned out fine.
It is great idea to use cake mixes, I used carrot cake mix for Thanksgiving to serve with Pumpkin pie and it was winning combination.

Oh My! This Ice Cream is my favorite. I love Coldstone's Cake Batter Ice Cream, and this is better! I have made several versions of this recipe and there have been none as good as this! I changed it up a little bit. I am not a big fan of heavy cream so I used 2 cups of 2% cold milk and 1 Cup of Heavy Cream. I also used 2 tbsp. of Vanilla extract instead of 1. This will be my new go to Ice Cream. I will never buy Ice Cream again! And it is so fun for the kids too. Thank you for this delicious Ice Cream!

Awesome! And easy! I made this with coconut milk and soy creamer--and even managed to find a vegan cake mix, so we ended up with an outstanding vegan ice cream. Thanks for posting this!

I used 3 cups fat free half & half, as I did not have any heavy cream.As suggested by another member, I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, and used Duncan Heinz Yellow cake mix. This was the best ice cream I have ever !

I did 2 cups of cake mix as others suggested, plus 1/4 cup sugar, and I thought it was quite strong. Next time I will do 1/4 cup sugar and only 1 or 1 1/2 cups cake mix. Easy recipe though, and worked great with 1 cup whole milk and 2 cups half and half. Also, tastes better after it has ripened in the freezer. It's worth waiting.
