It’s sure looking funky alright… but I love it!

O.K. this is the most ridiculously simple recipe. But it’s so good. So even though there are four other gluten-free desserts in this book I decided to go with something very easy that I think many people know already and like.

I think this might also be called a Brown Cow. Funky Coke Float definitely sounds better though. A small change here is that it’s topped with sugar encrusted pecans and almonds.

Ingredients for brown cow
Coke, vanilla ice cream and candied nuts.

Ingredients

  • vanilla ice cream
  • coke
  • handful of pecans and almonds
  • icing sugar

Instructions

  1. To sugar coat the nuts, rinse them in water, shake off the excess, mix with plenty of icing sugar until they are sticky. Line a baking sheet with oiled baking paper and then bake the sticky nuts at 180 C for 15 minutes until golden and crusty. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  2. Add a couple of scoops of icecream into a glass, top with coke and sprinkle over some sugar coated nuts.

For a more grown up version replace the coke with espresso.

Vanilla ice-cream in espresso topped with candied nuts
It’s so simple but a scoop of vanilla ice-cream in a hot shot of espresso is a great dessert.
