Raspberry and chocolate cake

3 comments

A delicious cake, with the sweetness of the maple syrup and of the chocolate and the tartness of the raspbarries blending together in a perfect mix!

Ingredients (for a 24 cm cake pan)

Base:

20 gr maple syrup

70 gr soy butter

200 gr digestive biscuits

Chocolate disk:

160 gr dark chocolate (60-70%)

40 gr toasted hazelnuts

Tofu cream:

110 gr water

3 tablespoons agar-agar flakes

450 gr tofu

200 gr maple syrup

Topping:

200 gr fresh or frozen raspberries (plus a few extra ones to decorate)

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoor agar-agar flakes

fresh mint (optional)

Method

Crush the biscuits to make fine crumbs and mix them with melt soy butter and maple syrup. Pour the mixture in a springform cake pan and with your wet hands form a uniform layer. Cook it in the oven at 180° for 15 minutes. When cooked the base becomes more solid and has a slightly toasted aroma, but this step can be skipped… well, you can avoid turning on the oven on a mid-summer day 😉

Grind the hazelnuts finely, add the chocolate and melt in a bain-marie. Pour it on the biscuit base and smooth it, then let it solidify (if possible, avoid putting it in the refrigerator).

Mix the water and the 3 tablespoons of agar flakes and boil until completely melted. Whisk the tofu with the maple syrup until very smooth, then add the agar mix, mix accurately and pour it over the chocolate disk. Smooth out the layer very carefully, then put it in the refrigerator until it becomes firm.

Finally, cook the raspberries with 1 tablespoon of agar-agar flakes, sugar, and some fresh mint leaves, and bring to a boil. As soon as the raspberries are boiling turn off the heat, take out the mint and let cool (you can also filter if you don’t like the little raspberry seeds); pour on top of the tofu cream, decorate with the remaining raspberries and fresh mint, and put back into the refrigerator.
