Description

As with a lot of my recipes you can either make all of this from scratch including the brownies and ice cream or if you are short on time you can use this recipe as inspiration for combining your favourite shop bought freeform brownies and ice cream.

If you are making everything using this recipe it will be enough to make about 12 desserts or you can just enjoy the brownies as a cake and keep the ice-cream in the freezer for another day.

Enjoy!

For the brownies:

  • 115g dairy free chocolate chips
  • 115g dairy free spread
  • 3 eggs
  • 200g light brown sugar

For serving:

  • A drizzle of dairy free chocolate sauce, I used Choc Shot
  • Handful of cherries

Method

 

To make the brownies:

  • Line a 13 by 9 inch shallow baking tin with tinfoil leaving the edges over the tin so the brownie can be easily lifted out the pan
  • Preheat the oven to 180 oC
  • In a small pan or in the microwave, melt together the chocolate and the dairy free spread
  • Leave aside to cool
  • Beat together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract
  • Stir the chocolate mixture, flour and xanthan gum
  • Pour into the pan and bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes
  • Leave in the pan to cool
  • Carefully lift out the pan and slice into squares

To make the ice-cream:

  • Whip the egg yolks, vanilla and sugar together until thick and creamy
  • Place the milk and cream into a medium sized saucepan and bring to the boil
  • Add the milk to the eggs and sugar while stirring continuously
  • Return to the pan and cook over a low heat until thickened
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool
  • Chill in the fridge
  • Churn in an ice-cream maker for 20 minutes or place in the freezer for four hours

To assemble:

  • Slice each brownie into small cubes
  • Layer up ice-cream, cherries and cubes of brownie

Gluten and Dairy Free Mint Choc Chip Ice-Cream

I do like my ice-cream and I’m pleased at the increase in availability of dairy free ice-cream I can enjoy both in shops and when eating out. Every so often I bring out my ice-cream churner and go through a phase of making lots of different dairy free ice-cream recipes.

This weekend I made mint choc chip for a little treat after dinner. I used soya cream and almond milk to make this but any kind of dairy free milk and cream should work with this recipe. Next time I think I’ll have a go at making some cinnamon ice-cream.

Enjoy!

Greetings from Iceland!

We’ve had a brilliant day in Reykjavík sightseeing, the backdrop of the snowy mountains make this such a beautiful city. I can also report so far that it has been super easy to find delicious gluten and dairy free food to eat. I had some wonderful fresh baked cod with lemon and sundried tomato for lunch. I’ll make sure I write it all up as a post incase any of you are planning to visit.

Before I left off Iceland I made this super quick and easy cherry chocolate ice-cream using a can of coconut milk.

Enjoy!

Sometimes in life the super simple things turn out to be the best things – and this recipe is one of them. I’ve already got a few recipes on here for ice-cream that are great tasting recipes but they do take a little time to prepare. They also start with a custard style base which means people with an egg allergy can’t enjoy them.

This time I decided to use coconut milk, I’ve been experimenting a lot with it recently both in savoury and sweet recipes. I was really pleased with the creamy texture that it gave the ice-cream. I’ve flavoured mine with coffee because I’m a coffee addict – I’m one of those people that is quite often seen carrying around one of those giant take away cups from Starbucks.

If you don’t have an ice-cream maker then trying freezing this in a small tub for a couple of hours. I have an attachment for my Kenwood Chef mixer than comes with a bowl you put in the freezer and you change the whisk to an ice-cream paddle. It works really well but is definitely something I use in stops and starts, go ice-cream mad for a few weeks and then put it away for a couple of months. That being the case I would probably look out for a few more ice-cream recipes popping up on the website soon.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Gluten and Dairy Free Cookies and Ice-Cream

I have a real sweet tooth – as you probably gathered from the amount of baking I upload onto the website. No matter how big the dinner I always have room for a little sweet treat. This time I’ve made a rich chocolate cookie topped with dairy free ice-cream and chocolate sauce.

The chef also has first choice of the leftover bits once you stamp out the cookie shapes – thats my rule anyway:)

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Salted Caramel Ice-Cream

A few weeks ago I posted my recipe for peanut butter chocolate chip ice cream which sparked a Facebook discussion of what favours of ice-cream you would like me to give the gluten and dairy free treatment to! One of the most popular requested was salted caramel so I’ve had a go at making it. I’ve added 1/4 teaspoon of salt which, for me, gives a nice balance between sweet and salty, depending on your tastes you may want to increase or decrease this.

I’m still working on the other flavours requested including raspberry ripple and mint chocolate chip.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Peanut Butter Choc Chip Ice Cream

peanut ice cream

I do love a big bowl of ice cream after my dinner, dairy free of course! I’ve been a bit lazy when it comes to making my own ice cream, the first recipe I made dairy free was for banana ice cream and I enjoyed it so much I’ve kind of just stuck with making that. Recently I’ve been feeling inspired to branch out and try new flavours. The first of my new dairy and gluten free ice cream recipes features my favourite flavour combination – peanut butter and chocolate.

You can use either smooth or crunchy peanut butter, I used the crunchy one as I liked the tiny bits of peanut through the ice cream. I’ll work on a few more dairy and gluten free ice-cream recipes but if you are after a specific flavour please let me know.

Enjoy!
