Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Unbelievable Triple-Layer Chocolate Mousse Fudge Cake
For the cake layer:
■3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
■2 tablespoons cocoa powder
■tiny bit over 1/4
■1/3 cup sugar
■1 tsp vanilla extract
■1 tsp cider vinegar
■1/3 cup cold water
Mix dry ingredients. Then add wet. Mix with a fork (not
beaters). Pour into an oiled, lined cake pan, and bake in a
preheated oven at 355 F for about thirty minutes. Cool before
removing from the pan.
For the mousse layer:
silk-firm tofu (such as Mori-Nu or Mori-Nu lite)
■1 tsp cocoa
■1 tsp pure vanilla extract
■2 tablespoons nondairy
■scant 1/8 tsp salt
■8 to 10 oz chocolate chips (a
little over 1 and 1/3c)
■2-3 tablespoons agave or other
sweetener (if you like really dark chocolate, you can omit).
Melt the chocolate (either on the stove or in the microwave), then
throw everything into a food processor and blend until super-smooth.
Assembling: Transfer the cake layer to an eight inch springform pan.
This next step is optional, but it adds an elegant touch: stand
sliced strawberries up along the side of the springform, facing
outwards. Then layer the mousse on top of the cake layer, as shown
in the photo. Either serve immediately, or refrigerate for a few
hours to allow the mousse to firm up. Apply the whipped cream
topping mentioned below just before serving.
with store bought whipped cream (such as Soyatoo and MimiCreme).
