Tofu Chocolate Cake

Tofu Chocolate Cake

7

"A creamy, rich chocolate cake that can be adapted for vegans by using margarine instead of butter. Do not use the silken tofu for this recipe, as it is too watery, and the cake will not set."

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch springform pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, ground almonds and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar. Knead in the butter to form a dough. Press the dough firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  3. Using a blender, combine the tofu, remaining sugar, oil, orange juice, chocolate liqueur, cocoa, and almond extract. Blend until smooth and creamy. Spread the batter in an even layer over the prepared crust.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cake to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate overnight. This cake must be thoroughly cold to set properly, otherwise it will be runny like a pudding.

This was so good. The almond crust, the creamy chocolate cake. Serve in little pieces. The cocoa makes it not to sweet. No one will know it's tofu. It came out perfect.

This is one of my favourite cakes ever!!! I love surprising people with the fact that it's made of tofu - and thus pretty healthy :). If you skip the bottom, it cooks well in a microwave as we...

I'm sorry, I just did not like this cake. The inside was too soft and runny, even after it sat overnight in the refrigerator. The taste was not palatable either (at least to us).
