CHOCOLATE-SOUR CHERRY CAKE

Preparation time: 40+ min

Difficulty: medium

For 20 cm cake pan

For the crust

Ingredients:

  • 200 g raw almonds

  • few tbs coconut blossom syrup

  • 3 tbs cacao

Soak almonds overnight.


Drain them the next day, add to a blender, add 750 ml of water and blend until smooth. Sieve almonds through a nut milk bag or through a cheesecloth. Put the almond batter into a bigger bowl, add sweetener, a few tablespoons of almond milk and cacao, and mix well.


Use the rest of the milk for cereals, breakfast, or various drinks. The moisture of the batter needs to be just right. Place the batter into a cake pan and press it against the bottom. Place the pan in the fridge and prepare the filling.

For chocolate ganache

  • tin of coconut milk

  • 300 g dark chocolate (at least 70%)

  • pinch of salt

  • 3 tbs coarsely ground cacao nibs

Bring coconut milk to a boil and pour it over crushed dark chocolate with a pinch of salt. Wait for about a minute and stir until you get a smooth mixture. First, sprinkle cacao nibs onto the crust, then pour over the lukewarm ganache. Place in the fridge overnight. Prepare sour cherry cream.


For sour cherry marmalade

Ingredients:

  • 200 g frozen sour cherries (you can also use cherries)

  • sweetener to taste

  • lemon zest of one lemon

  • marrant or any other thickener (e.g. starch)

Add sour cherries to a saucepan, pour over a few spoons of water, add sweetener, and lemon zest. Simmer at a low temperature until sour cherries defrost. Add marrant or starch to thicken the mixture. Let it cool and place it in the fridge overnight.

Topping

Ingredients:

  • 200 ml whipping coconut cream

  • few tbs sour cherry marmalade

While whipping the coconut cream, add a few spoons of sour cherry marmalade to it. This will color the cream pink. Decorate the cake with it and place the cake in the fridge for a few hours. Serve with the rest of sour cherry marmalade.
