If I have to pick only one cake for a special occasion it has to be ‘chocolatemousse. In this Christmas period, when we get together with our families and share the most beautiful moments, a dessert like this is perfect to end a dinner: chocolatey, sweet but not too much, melting in the mouth allthough it is dairy-, gluten- and sugarfree. I made this cake when my cousins family came to us and it turned out to be the most popular dessert, even more than other traditional cakes. This will be also on our table on New Year’s Eve ;).
Serving: 10-12 persons
1 cup walnuts
1 cup dried plums
2 TbSp carob/cocoa powder
a little bit of water, if needed
6 TbSp chia seeds
1/2 cup water
170 gr cocoa mass, melted
2 TbSp lucuma powder
2 TbSp carob powder
1 tSp vanilla powder
2 TbSt Tahini
2 cups almond milk
To make the base:
Process the walnuts and the plums in a mixer until finely chopped. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Press the mixture into the bottom of a mold lined with parchment paper, and set aside in the fridge.
To make the cream:
Mix the chia seeds and the water. Will thicken in about 10 min. Using a high blender, mix all the ingredients + the chia seeds until you get a smooth cream. Pour it over the base and decorate. Let the tart in the fridge to set for some hours or overnight.
Decorated with shredded coconut
With this cake I want to thank every one who stopped by at my blog during this year! May 2016 year be a better one, full of love and gratitude!
