(2016-11-14 14:52:10)

You will need

Chocolate sponge:
100g white spelt flour
100g plain wholegrain flour
50g buckwheat flour
50g soy flour
140g almond butter
100g dark muscovado
3 cups soy milk
2 tsp baking powder

Cherry and chia "custard":
2 cans cherry in light juice
2 tbsp cornflour
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp chia seeds

Coconut whipped cream:
2 cans coconut milk
3 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp icing sugar


Chocolate sponge:
Preheat oven to 170 C. In a large bowl mix all types of flours with banking powder and dark muscovado. Add almond butter and soy milk and stir through until just well combined. Pour batter into a cake tin with baking paper and bake about 30-40 minutes until skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Leave to cool.

Cherry and chia "custard":
Stone all cherries and drain the juice. Pour juice into the saucepan, add lemon juice and cornflour and cook until thick. Mix the cherries and chia seeds and leave to cool.

Coconut whipped cream:
Chill your coconut milk in the fridge overnight. Then remove the can from the fridge (without tipping or shaking) and remove the lid. Scrape out the top, thickened cream and leave the liquid behind. Place cream in mixing bowl, add lemon juice and icing sugar and beat with a mixer about 30 second or until creamy. Then add chia seeds and mix about 1 minute. Leave the cool in the fridge about 10 minutes.

Cut off the upper part of the sponge, return it back into the cake tin, pour the cherry "custard" and then coconut whipped cream. Sprinkle with the rest of the crumbled chocolate sponge and leave the cool in the fridge about 30 minutes. Take out from the cake tin and serve.
