Makes: 1 + 1/2 cups or 400ml
200g Carobio Carob Hazel Spread
1 cup of Soya Cream (single)
4 tablespoons of Honey
2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
2 teaspoons Maple Syrup
Mix them all together in a bowl and use straight away.
It’s a handy quick sauce and I used it as a chocolate over ice cream and drizzled over a cake.
Carobio Hazel Spread:
This spread comes from Biona Organic and has a lovely smooth texture and a very strong flavour. It reminds me of dark chocolate with cocoa solids over 70%, My family tasters found it delicious with the additional ingredients which tone down it’s very strong flavour.
Orange Oil Variation & Tip :
The first time I tried this I put orange oil in to see what effect it would have. There was just a hint of the oil and gave an extra dimension which was really nice. I love finding an extra flavour in things that I wasn’t expecting (has to be a nice flavour mind).
Just a word of caution, just add in a couple of drops of the orange oil at a time. It is fairly potent and very little goes a long way. I only used 2 drops in this. Overdo it and you’ll spoil your wonderful creation (which I did a few months back with something else, I can honestly say definitely not worth it).
I’m busy baking today pity the sun has just gone in as baking is so much more enjoyable when it’s shining.
I promised photos from the breakfast last weekend but the natural lighting was so bad (which I tend to rely on a lot being a novice photographer) I wasn’t pleased with the results. So on to this weekend but the forecast isn’t great, maybe the weather forecasters have got it wrong – here’s hoping.
Love to hear how you get on with this sauce. Are you on a baking day today, like to share below what you’re making?
I’m trying to turn this sauce into a mousse, at present it’s in the fridge, will let you know how I get on…
