Its hot out here in Seattle and my teeth are behaving. Yes, they cannot deal with the amount of chocolate and ice cream I throw at them, so I have to pace some. Luckily for them(unluckily for people) Seattle has been on the cooler side all through summer. But the day it gets warm enough, I throw atleast 2-3 scoops of ice cream at my teeth. They usually do fine with slightly soft, not too cold and less chocolate-y ice creams(bummer, coz this is the year of chocolate for me. Maybe we should have some cencepts of year of chocolate, ice cream , kale or something like that ;)
Serve a good portion of the cake, with a dollop of ice cream, topped with caramel, nut crumbs and cherries.
Or serve scoops of the Ice cream, topped with caramel sauce, nuts and thin slices/logs of the Mocha cake.
Heather is hosting the Vegan Sundae challenge , and today is the last day to submit entries. Crazy right. Last minute, thy name is Richa.
Too hot, too hot! Quick, take pictures before I melt away.
The ice cream is simple. This is a single serve because hubbs is allergic to bananas, so that means I get to eat all of this, ha!
No worries, Hubbs "will" get to eat some with a SoDelicious Mocha almond fudge scoop. Yup, he probably will get home after 9, so I cannot really guarantee the existence of the cake, caramel or the ice cream. There are plenty cherries.
I have never really been too fond of Sundaes. In fact, never ate one till I came to the land of chocolate, brownies, and loads of sugar. Same applies to hubbs, We'd rather eat some Chaat(savory Indian snacks with chutneys) than a brownie.
The story goes that this is the year of Chocolate for me. I have developed a sudden liking for it, which was non existent till last year. hmmm. Last year was the year of the Indian Pickle.
And I love all things cardamom and Chai spice. Hence the play with these flavors, and theme for the Sundae challenge.
Its almost a Brownie Sundae with the dark Mocha cake. I just make the cake so often, that I used that instead of a fudgier brownie.:)
Remind me to make more Frozen treats, so they can have a separate album and recipe section. What are you loving this summer?

Take a slice of warm cake, place a scoop of the banana ice cream on the cake.
Drizzle as little or as much of the chai spice caramel.
