Vegan Chocolate & Raspberry Mousse Cake
 
Serves 8-10
Ingredients
  • Biscuit base:
  • 1 cup raw buckwheat
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • 1 cup medjool dates, seeds removed (about 8 dates)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Mousse filling:
  • 375g Organic Firm Tofu
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate (can use a block broken up or choc chips)
  • 1 Tbsp. cacao powder
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup plant-based milk of choice
  • ½ tsp. vanilla bean powder
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries (you can use frozen but they will become a little watery in the fridge but still tastes delicious)
  • Chocolate sauce (this is optional):
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • ½ tsp. vanilla bean powder
  • Topping suggestions:
  • Fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Cacao nibs
  • Edible flowers
Instructions
  1. Start by placing the chocolate for the filling in a bowl and melt by place bowl in saucepan with water on a low heat or in microwave. While this is melting you can start making the rest of the cake.
  2. Add all crust ingredients into a high speed blender or food processor and blend until combined (it will be a bit crumbly like a biscuit). Line the bottom of a spring-form cake tin (I used a 22cm tin) with baking paper and transfer the base into the tin. Press down with fingers until its even and place in freezer.
  3. Place all filling ingredients into blender (except raspberries) and pour in the melted chocolate, blend until smooth and creamy. Add in the raspberries and stir into the mixture with a spoon. Pour onto the crust and even out with the back of a spoon. Place in fridge to set for at least 4 hours (overnight for the best result) and it will become firm.
  4. When you're ready to serve, using a butter knife carefully go around the edges separating the mousse from the side of the tin and take out of the tin.
  5. Make the chocolate sauce by mixing all ingredients together in a bowl until it becomes smooth then pour over cake (you could also use melted chocolate if you didn't want to make this).
  6. Top with fresh or frozen raspberries, cacao nibs and edible flowers for decoration!
  7. Store any left overs in fridge.
