VEGAN CHOCOLATE HOT CROSS BUN WITH ICE CREAM 

We have created some delicious vegan alternative hot cross buns with ice cream! This is the ultimate Easter treat to make for the family.

These easy-to-make Buns (watch the video recipe above) are so much tastier than supermarket hot cross buns which are full of sugar and far less fresh.

VEGAN CHOCOLATE HOT CROSS BUN ICE CREAM SANDWICHES

Makes: 6

Dry ingredients:
255g plain flour
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
80g Ecuador 70% Organic Dark Chocolate, finely chopped

Wet ingredients:
4 tbsp vegan butter, melted – or you can use coconut oil
150ml plant-based milk of choice, warmed
7g sachet of yeast
3 tbsp coconut sugar – or you can use brown sugar
Vegan ice cream to serve

For the crosses:
Use more melted chocolate to create the crosses

Method:

  • Heat the milk until it’s slightly warm, but not too hot or it will kill the yeast. Pour into a bowl and mix in the sugar and yeast. Leave to the side for 10 minutes to allow the yeast to grow.
  • In a larger bowl, mix together the flour, spices, salt and chopped chocolate.
  • Fold in the yeast mixture and melted butter/coconut oil. Mix until a dough forms and then kneed for a couple of minutes. Add more milk if needed.
  • Cover with cling film and a towel. Leave in a warm place for 1-2 hours to rise.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, divide into 6 balls and arrange in a lightly oiled tin/baking dish. I used a loaf tin. Cover and leave to rise again for 20 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 190*C (170*C fan assisted) and bake for 25-30 minutes. Leave to cool completely before creating the crosses.
  • Use melted chocolate and a piping bag (or a spoon) to create the crosses.
  • To serve – Halve a hot cross bun and place a scoop of your favourite ice cream (I recommend chocolate!) on the bottom half then sandwich with the top half.

Way too moreish

I bought one of these some time ago and after giving my children a taste I was left disappointed that their was little left for me. They keep bugging me to buy more so have just order the 8 box for their Christmas stockings. Only 2 will make it into the stockings, the rest will be well hidden and will be my secret stash.

The flavour and texture takes me back to my childhood when chocolate was a treat and not filled with additives, now only if you could recreate the "finger of fudge" of old I'd be back in the halcyon days of youth.

I'd recommend the dark gin truffles which I bought in John Lewis, they are heaven, wish I could order those online.

One word of warning, once opened they don't last long, and are not for those on a diet!

Best chocolate ever!

It's really hard to find chocolate that is not only milk free, but also soya free. This chocolate fits the bill perfectly and is absolutely delicious!

Great gift

Sent these as a wee gift to a friend who was having a tough time. She was delighted - they're both pretty AND tasty!!

Love this

Received this for free from O2.
Love it, just gone online and ordered more. If you like dark chocolate, i would definitely recommend this, especially with the sea salt

Excellent service

Excellent service and excellent chocolate
