Every Christmas, I give my dad some homemade Sucre à la crème as a gift. However, I didn't want to encourage the dairy industry, neither disappoint him. So I veganized my original recipe and here it is!
This recipe is done very quickly. I used to do it with my mom. To be ready, you should prepare:
The pyrex dish with parchment paper and rubber spatula
The milk mixture
Measure brown sugar and powdered sugar in advance
Prepare a station for the powdered sugar step: a pot holder and hand mixer.
Prep : 5 min
Cooking : 10 min
Servings: app 35 cubes
750 ml (3 cups) of light brown sugar
1 000 ml (4 cups) powdered sugar (icing sugar)
160 ml regular coconut milk (not light)
40 ml sugar
5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla
Prepare a pyrex dish with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine the milk mixture ingredients.
In a casserole, melt the margarine.
Add the brown sugar and the milk mixture and stir with a wooden spatula. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and continue stirring continuously the boiling mixture for 5 minutes.
Remove from the burner. Add the powdered sugar and stir quickly with the wooden spatula. Finish mixing until homogeneous with an hand mixer. This step must be done very quickly so that the mixture doesn’t fix.
Empty the mix into the dish with a rubber spatula.
Wait until the mix is fixed but not too cold to cut into pieces.
Storage: In an airtight containe / 2 weeks room temperature / 2 months frozen
