12
flat-bottom ice-cream cones
1 1/4
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
3/4
cup sugar
1/3
cup malted milk powder, if desired
1/4
cup baking cocoa
1
teaspoon baking soda
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup vegetable oil
1
teaspoon white vinegar
1/2
teaspoon vanilla
2/3
cup cold water
1
quart chocolate or vanilla ice cream
6
candy or plastic straws
Frozen (thawed) whipped topping, if desired
12
maraschino cherries, if desired

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place cones upright in medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches, or rectangular pan, 13x9x2 inches. Mix flour, sugar, malted milk powder, cocoa, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat oil, vinegar and vanilla with wire whisk. Stir oil mixture and water into flour mixture about 1 minute or until well mixed. Pour batter into cones, filling each to within about 1 inch of top.
  • 2 Bake about 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Remove cones from muffin cups to wire rack; cool completely.
  • 3 Top each cake with a small scoop of ice cream; freeze until ready to serve but no longer than 1 hour. Just before serving, cut straws in half and insert into ice cream. Garnish each with a dollop of whipped topping; top with cherry.

Expert Tips

Make your next party a '50s theme, and here's the perfect dessert! For a clever serving tray, loosely cover a muffin pan with colorful napkins, and nestle the cones into the cups. Turn up the bebop and party!

You can use Betty Crocker® SuperMoist® devil's food or chocolate fudge cake mix instead of the cake batter recipe. You'll get about twice as many cake cones as with the Ice-Cream Cone Cakes recipe (or bake cupcakes with the extra batter). Bake cupcakes 20 to 25 minutes.
