Not overly sweet, not overly rich, dairy free and gluten free..... WIN WIN WIN!!
As we're heavily reducing our dairy and gluten intake it's great to have a dish that satisfies those sweet naughty little cravings while keeping us on track with our dietary requirements.
My mum shared this recipe with me..... here's the Thermomix conversion:
DAIRY FREE GLUTEN FREE CHOCOLATE TORTE
60g cashew nuts
90g rice flour
45g rapadura sugar
300 ml coconut milk
225g dark 70% or higher chocolate
Pop cashew nuts in TM bowl and blitz on speed 9 for 5-8 secs until finely chopped. Add rice flour, rapadura sugar and salt and mix on speed 5 until combined (about 3 secs). Add softened butter and mix on speed 5 for about 8 seconds or until fully combined and mixture is holding together. Press into lined and greased springform cake pan and bake in moderate oven for 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
Once base is cool and your TM bowl is cleaned and dried add chocolate and chop for 7 seconds on speed 8 then add your coconut milk and cook for 2 mins speed 2 at 50 degrees. Pour over base and leave in fridge overnight to set. Before serving sprinkle with desiccated coconut and enjoy!!
Would love to hear what you all think of this one, it's definitely one I'll be making over and over..... (we'll soon be sick of it here!)
