Ingredients

  • Brownie
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 170 g butter room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Ice Cream
  • 2 cans coconut milk 400ml cans chilled
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • No. 1 | Scrape the coconut milk into a blender. Add the maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Blend on high for 10-15 seconds. Line a 9 x 9 inch casserole dish with a single piece of plastic wrap. Pour the liquid into the dish and place in the freezer to set, about 4-6 hours.
  • No. 2 | Preheat your oven to 350°. Grease a 13 x 18 inch baking sheet with butter, and line with parchment paper.
  • No. 3 | In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt.
  • No. 4 | In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. While continuing to beat on medium speed, add the eggs, one at a time until combined. Turn the speed down to low, then slowly add the flour mixture. Once the batter has come together, scrape the sides of the bowl down, a give one last quick mix.
  • No. 5 | Scrape the batter onto the baking sheet and using a spatula, spread it out into a thin even layer, leaving a little bit of space around the edges. The batter should be about ¼ inch thick. Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove and allow to cool completely.
  • No. 6 | To assemble the sandwiches, use a 2 inch round cookie cutter to cut 18 rounds out of the cake. Carefully remove the ice cream from the casserole dish using the plastic wrap. Use the cookie cutter to cut 9 rounds from the ice cream. Place each ice cream round on a cake round then top with additional piece of cake. Return the sandwiches to the freezer to set. Wrap and leftover sandwiches in plastic wrap.

Notes

  • If you’re not up for making the ice cream, then just buy some and place a scoop of ice cream on each cake round and use a knife to smooth out the sides of the sandwiches.
  • If you don’t have a round cookie cutter, then you can just cut the cake into 3 inch squares and do the same with the ice cream.
  • If doing rounds, there will be additional ice cream and cake scraps. They make a great snack while you wait for the sandwiches to set :)
