A very easy to make vegan chocolate cake

I made this vegan chocolate cake for Jane's fifth birthday. It was a really big success and not too much work! Truly chocolate heaven!

You can make a vegan chocolate cake with vegan soft cheese. Nowadays you can buy it everywhere, but I think it gives you a too savory cheese-like taste. Instead, I use silk tofu in this vegan birthday cake for the creamy, silky texture!

Ps: make sure to use coconut oil that is "deodorized" to avoid the coconut flavor.


Serves 8

Ingredients for the base:

  • pack of Oreo cookies

  • 30 grams of vegan butter, melted

Ingredients for the filling:

  • 1 packet of silk tofu (350 grams) (bought at Toko for example)

  • 2 bars of Tony Chocolonely, 70% cacao

  • 60 ml coconut oil

  • 4 tbs icing sugar

  • 2 tbs lemon juice

  • 200 ml of oat milk

  • 2 tbs cacao powder

  • optional: sea salt flakes, strawberries of some extra chocolate flakes

  • juice from ½ small orange + zest, very finely sliced

Necessities:

  • food processor

  • springform (20 cm deep)

  • baking paper


Line the base and sides of a deep 20 cm spring form cake tin (see video below).

Make the base

  1. Roughly crush the Oreos in a food processor. Tip into a bowl, add the melted butter and mix.
  2. Cover the base of the prepared cake tin with the Oreo mixture, pressing to compact. Chill for at least 30 minutes in the fridge.

Make the filling:

  1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, stirring frequently. (see video)
  2. While the chocolate melts, put the silken tofu, sugar, lemon juice, orange juice + zest, oat milk and cocoa powder into a food processor and whizz until completely smooth.
  3. Add the melted chocolate mixture to the food processor and whizz again. Pour the filling mixture on top of the Oreo base and chill for at least 3 hours.
  4. Once set, sprinkle with a few swa salt flakes before slicing and serving or serve with some extra chocolate flakes or strawberries to give the cake a nice color.
