VeganMoFo – IRON CHEF CHALLENGE!

It’s the weekend, and it’s VeganMoFo, which means, it’s IRON CHEF WEEKEND! I missed the last one because I was camping, but, this is my favourite VeganMoFo event. I love a good food challenge.

 

This weekend’s ingredients – coffee and bananas.

My dish – Mocha Banana Bread Pudding

Happily, this dish has enough coffee in it to please coffee lovers, but not so much that it’ll scare away coffee haters. If you want it to taste more like coffee, it’ll taste great with more added.

Ingredients:

1Loaf Sweet French bread

2 cups of your favourite vegan creamer (I actually used some Rich’s vegan whipped topping, un-whipped. If you like Soyatoo or can get your hands on Rich’s use it)

2 of your favourite plant milk

1C sugar

1/4C Earth Balance, melted

2T EnerG + 1/2C water (mixed)

3tsp instant espresso, dissolved in 1/2C water

2 bananas, sliced into coins

1 scant cup of vegan chocolate chips

Cut french bread into cubes. Put them into a bowl and keep overnight to get a bit stale.

The next day – put bread into 6qt crock pot.

In a separate bowl, mix creamer, milk, sugar, Earth Balance, EnerG mix, and espresso. Pour over bread and let sit for about 15 minutes. Gently mix in bananas and chocolate chips.

Cook on high for 2-3 hours. Low for 4-6.

Try not to sneak too much of the bread while it cooks. :)
