Northern Bean Coffee Cake & Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

As you know I've been thoroughly obsessed with my 2 new cookbooks and it seems I'm on a race or rather mission to cook as many of the recipes in them as possible.  As soon as I put the baby down I'm in the kitchen, trying out the next dogeared page. This past week was Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream from Elana's blog and Coffee Cake from The Spunky Coconut's new cookbook.

Here are the fruits of my labor...







 The cake was so good it almost fooled my husband, but I was so excited about it I blew my cover and leaked that it was made of beans.  He usually hates even the yummiest of my alternative baked treats but he gobbled this one up without a stink. 





So creamy and decadent and SPICY!  I love that.  Coconut milk is the only way to make ice cream as far as I'm concerned and the agave nectar made it perfectly sweet.  I didn't miss the sugar at all...
