Raw vegan chocolate cake / Sirova veganska torta od čokolade

This cake is da bomb! It’s super scrumptious and rich, but also pretty healthy for you. So you have a win-win situation here. It also mostly comes together in a food processor so you won’t have to wash a mountain of dishes. I made this for my birthday and it was a big hit as pretty much everyone loved it – vegans, omnivores and everyone in between.

METHOD:

Before starting, soak the pitted dates in warm water for about 20 minutes so they soften up a bit, then drain. Lightly grease a baking tray with coconut oil and line it with parchment paper. In a food processor, grind the sunflower seeds into a fine powder. Add in drained dates, peanut butter, cacao powder, stevia, vanilla and salt, then pulse until a uniform dough forms. Add in milk as needed, a tablespoon at the time. Finally, throw in the cashews and pulse a few times so there is still some crunch left to the dough.

Press the dough into a prepared baking tray and even it out. Throw it in a freezer for about 15 minutes before adding ganache. To prepare the ganache, simply melt the chocolate with coconut oil, stevia and milk. Stir until silky and smooth, then pour over the cake base and quickly even out with a spatula. Sprinkle crushed cashews on top of the ganache. Melt the white chocolate with half a teaspoon of coconut oil and transfer into a freezer bag. Cut the end of the bag and drizzle the white chocolate over the cake. Return everything to a freezer for a couple of hours to firm up and set.

Let the cake sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before cutting it into small squares. Store it in a refrigerator and serve chilled.

Ova torta je totalna bomba! Apsolutno je fantastična i bogata, no ujedno je i poprilično zdrava, tako da imate idealnu situaciju. Većinu posla možete odraditi sa multipraktikom pa vas na kraju svega neće čekati planina od suđa. Ja sam ju radila za svoj rođendan i oduševila je sve po redu – vegane, svejede i sve one između.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 1 tortu / 78,71 kn)

Za tijesto:

3 šalice odkoštenih datulja (22,50 kn)

2 šalice suncokretovih sjemenki (4,00 kn)

2 žlice kikiriki maslaca (2,00 kn)

3 žlice sirovog kakao praha (3,00 kn)

1 žličica prirodne stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

3-4 žlice sojinog ili kojeg drugog biljnog mlijeka (0,50 kn)

1 šalica neslanih indijskih oraščića (15,00 kn)

Za čokoladnu glazuru:

200 g dobre tamne čokolade (20,00 kn)

1 žličica kokosovog ulja (0,50 kn)

1 žličica prirodne stevije u prahu (0,50 kn)

¼ šalice sojinog ili kojeg drugog biljnog mlijeka (0,75 kn)

Za ukrašavanje:

¼ šalice drobljenih neslanih indijskih oraščića (3,75 kn)

2-3 reda bijele čokolade (5,00 kn)

½ žličice kokosovog ulja (0,25 kn)

Dodatno:

Kokosovo ulje za namastiti protvan (0,25 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Dvadesetak minuta prije nego počnete namočite datulje u toploj vodi da malo omekšaju, pa ih ocijedite. Malo namastite protvan kokosovim uljem i obložite ga papirom za pečenje. U multipraktiku sameljite suncokretove sjemenke u fini prah. Dodajte ocijeđene datulje, kakao prah, steviju, vaniliju i sol, pa pulsirajte dok ne dobijete jednolično tijesto. Po potrebi nadodajte i mrvicu mlijeka, žlicu po žlicu. Na kraju ubacite indijske oraščiće i par puta sve skupa propulsirajte da ih usitnite, ali da vam tijesto i dalje ima nešto hrskavoće.

Tijesto rukama utisnite u pripremljeni kalup i poravnajte. Stavite u zamrzivač na petnaestak minuta prije nego zalijete glazurom. Glazuru pripremite tako da otopite čokoladu sa kokosovim uljem, stevijom i mlijekom. Miješajte glazuru dok ne bude svilenkasta i glatka, pa ju prelijte preko tijesta i brzo poravnajte špatulom. Po glazuri sada posipajte drobljene indijske oraščiće. Bijelu čokoladu rastopite sa pola žličice kokosovog ulja i preselite u malu vrećicu za smrzavanje. Odrežite kut vrećice i prošarajte kolač sa bijelom čokoladom. Sada tortu vratite u zamrzivač i ostavite ju na par sati da se stisne.

Petnaestak minuta prije rezanja izvadite tortu iz zamrzivača i ostavite ju na sobnoj temperaturi. Razrežite ju na male kockice, te čuvajte u hladnjaku, a poslužite ohlađenu.
