Sundae Sunday - Toffee in a tin!
On to the sundae!
I made Mocha-Maca Rocket Fuel from Vegan a la Mode via Tami's website. This is a cooked recipe, and I usually don't have great success with cooked recipes (except the jam ice cream I made last week). Also, maca has a really weird smell. Frankly, it smells like burning. So I wasn't sure about this one.
I'm really glad I tried it, because it's great. The maca adds a sorta buttery/butterscotch flavour to the mocha. Topped with warm toffee, it was AMAZING. Unfortunately, it didn't get very solid in the ice cream maker, and it didn't freeze much in the quick freeze drawer of the freezer, so it was a bit melty. Once I put the warm toffee on it, it was pretty much a soup of shades of brown - not very attractive. But I assure you it was fantastic.
I really need to get Vegan a la Mode. Maybe I'll ask for it for Xmas.
