My non-vegan adaptation of the Cherry Cola Ice Cream recipe in Vegan A La Mode. The original recipe calls for a reduction of 8 cups of cola to 1 cup but because I was impatient (and it’s 100 degrees in L.A.) I reduced 6 cups instead. The original recipe also calls for 1/3 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of coconut milk (subbed here with heavy cream) but the result was so intensely sweet that I have ditched the sugar and increased the cream.

3/30/2012: TAKE TWO. I have modified this recipe - much simpler and tastes better! Instead of steeping the cake in the ice cream base as I had done previously (the result was way too rich!), the cake is now tossed with the caramelized pineapple and cherries, and folded later into the ice cream.
P.S. I used Dole canned pineapple like in the original recipe.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATHAN! xox

For his birthday, my friend Jim Cherry requested a “Cherry Nut” flavor so I have made a Walnut Ice Cream with Roasted Cherries. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIM!
P.S. I added 1 tablespoon of brandy to the cherries after roasting.
