Milk Chocolate Pannacotta, Chocolate Brownie, Coconut Crumble, Jasmine Tea Poached Pear
Milk chocolate pannacotta
500ml Coconut milk (the drinking kind not those that come in tins)
2g Agar powder
200g Milk chocolate (vegan)
Pour coconut milk into saucepan & heat over medium heat. Whisk in the agar powder & bring to a boil whilst continuously mixing. It is important to boil the milk with the agar to activate it so it can set the pannacotta. Once the milk boils, pour it onto your chocolate and let sit for a minute, this will help melt your chocolate and combine easily. Then using a whisk combine the mixture together to get a smooth mixture which you can pour into individual dessert glasses. Because we are using agar, the pannacotta will start setting at room temperature. You can refrigerate it if you are in a hurry.
320g Vegan butter
300g Apple sauce
2tsp Vanilla paste
1tsp Sea salt
400g Brown sugar (can replace with your preference of sugar)
120g Cocoa powder (important you get good quality)
400g Self raising flour gluten-free
150g Dark chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl combine salt, sugar, cocoa powder and self-raising flour. Melt the vegan butter & mix in the apple sauce & vanilla paste. Combine well & pour onto the dry ingredients. Combine well, but no need to overmix it. Fold in the chocolate chips & pour into a lined 10 inch square baking tin. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160”C for approximately 30 – 40 minutes. Check with a skewer inserted in the middle, if it comes out clean then its ready to take out & let cool.
This is a large recipe, but no harm in having some chocolate cake through the week 😊
