For Vegan Month of Food 2014 I am adapting recipes from the first book I ever learnt to bake from: Chocolat: Fondre de Plaisir by Camille and Nathalie Le Foll. Join me as I veganise 20 recipes from this book – it’s going to be a month of total chocolate decadence!
You may look at this Sundae and think, ‘I’ll never be able to finish this all by myself.’ You are capable of so much more than you think, so dig in, and see if you don’t end up scraping the bottom of the glass when you’re done 😉
I was particularly eager to create this recipe because, aside from containing nothing but heavenly ingredients, it’s connected to the city of Liège, where my late paternal grandmother lived. We used to drive the long 2 hours from Ursel to Liège, across the country, to visit my grandmother. Mum always prepared her a large crate of books – mostly thrillers and crime novels – which she then exchanged for the books my grandmother had read. We’d go eat at a nice restaurant and usually have ice cream for dessert. She was a lovely woman; I wish I could have known her better.
Double Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Cream Sundae
1 scoop vegan vanilla ice cream
1 scoop vegan chocolate ice cream
1 vegan wafer or ice cream cone
For the chocolate sauce:
30g dark chocolate, chopped
1 tbsp non-dairy milk
1 tsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla sugar or vanilla extract
For the whipped cream:
125ml (1/2 cup) coconut cream
1/2 tsp stevia powder (or 1 tbsp icing sugar)
1. Prepare the coconut whipped cream: in a small bowl, whip the sweetener and coconut cream into stiff peaks. Keep in the fridge until needed.
2. For the chocolate sauce: place all the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir regularly until melted. Remove fro the heat.
3. Assemble the sundae: add one scoop of chocolate ice cream to a sundae glass, then a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Top with the whipped cream and plant your wafer or cone into the ice cream. Top with the hot chocolate sauce and enjoy immediately.
Do you think you could finish this all by yourself? 😉
