This is an amazing vegan ganache recipe that is SUPER easy and works every time. I use this recipe under all my fondant cakes and chocolate cakes. You can use this as a drip icing, cake filling, and frosting.
This dairy-free ganache is made with just two ingredients | image/Sara Kidd
- 600 grams vegan dark chocolate
- 300 mls thick coconut cream
- Heat coconut cream in large heavy bottom pot on low heat until small bubbles appear around the edge right before it's about to start simmering, don't boil. You can also heat in the microwave.
- Remove from stove/microwave and add chocolate making sure it is covered by the cream, cover and let sit for 10 mins.
- Stir through chocolate using a whisk.
- If there are any lumps, put pot back onto stove on very low heat and stir until lumps have melted and the ganache is shiny.
- Transfer to a microwave-friendly bowl and let the ganache thicken enough so it can be used to ice your cake.
- If it sets too hard you can put into the microwave on a low heat until soft enough to use.
