Vegan Crème Au Café (Vegan Coffee Blanc-Mange)
from Mad Maryno

Really economical dessert that is veganized from La Cuisine Raisonnée, the most valued cookbook in Quebec's pop culture.


  • 1 1/2 cups soymilk
  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso or strong coffee, cold
  • 5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 5 tablespoons cold water
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt

In a pot over medium-low heat, put the soymilk, the coffee, the sugar and the pinch of salt.

In a small bowl, whisk the cornstarch with the cold water. Add to the pot.

Cook, stirring constantly for 15 to 20 minutes.

Add the vanilla.

Lightly oil a mold in a fancy shape or simply use a loaf pan, or 6 individual molds.

Put the mixture in the mold. Let cool then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Serve with "whipped cream" and chocolate shavings.
