Vegan And Gluten-Free Pink Chai Chocolate Cake

While the pink chai frosting was quickly created, it took me quite some time to get the texture of the chocolate cake right. Like a loong time. In other words, I don’t think I ever had that much chocolate cake in my life 😉

Course Baked Sweet, Cake
Cuisine New Zealand
Servings 1 cake (18 cm)

Equipment

  • 18cm spring-from
  • Blender

Ingredients
  

For the chocolate cake:

  • 200 ml coconut milk preferably with high-fat content
  • 125 ml water
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium fiber husk
  • 90 g coconut sugar
  • 110 g rice flour
  • 75 g FAIR-TRADE cocoa powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

For the pink chai frosting:

  • 140 g cashews soak them in water for at least 3 hours, then rinse and drain
  • 1 heaped tablespoon coconut sugar or more if you like it sweet
  • 30 g cacao butter melted
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon beetroot powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoon water if needed
  • Some extra beetroot powder and chopped pistachios for garnish if desired.

Instructions
 

  • First blend the coconut milk, water, psyllium fiber husk and coconut sugar in a blender. Set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C (top-/bottom heat). Line bottom of spring-form with baking paper and grease the sides lightly (I used coconut oil for this step).
  • Sift rice flour, cocoa powder and baking powder into a bowl and mix it. Add the coconut cream mixture and quickly stir to combine. Don’t over stir.
  • Scoop the dough into the spring-form and spread it evenly.
  • Bake in oven covered* for approx. 35 to 45 minutes, or until an inserted wooden skewer comes out of the dough just slightly sticky. Let cool down a little before taking it out of the form. Then let cool down completely before applying the frosting.
  • For the frosting, blend all ingredients but the beetroot powder and cinnamon in a powerful mini-blender. It helps if the ingredients are at room temperature to stop the cacao butter from setting too early. Add a few tablespoons of water if necessary.
  • Once the mixture is blended to a smooth, creamy texture, add the beetroot powder and ground cinnamon and blend once more. If it is too hard to blend it, mix it manually instead of adding more water. Let cool down a little until the mixture gets a little thick.
  • If you’d like to make some decorative frosting dollops, take a few tablespoons of it aside. Spread the frosting evenly over the cake. Garnish with a little more beetroot powder if you wish. Transfer the remaining frosting into an icing bag to add dollops. Garnish with chopped pistachios if desired.
  • Chill for 1 to 2 hours until the frosting is set. Then keep covered until serving (the frosting tends to dry out after a while).

Notes

Enjoy! 🙂
*I insert an empty baking tray in the rack above the cake to shield it from direct heat.
