cheesecake and the love for it….


I think it doesn’t need any introduction. This cake I served on my birthday and really everybody loved it, and the cake was soon finished only the cashews take a long time to soak. This cake is with chocolate and bananas, sweet and sticky. Enjoy while making it and put on some nice music during your baking.
Thank you Martine for posting this on vegetus.nl!

1/2 cup of smashed banana
400 grams of silken tofu
!1/2 cup of sugar (or rice syrup)
!16 grams of vanilla Sugar  (a fresh vanillia stick)
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
4 tablespoons of cornstarch
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon of almond extract
a dash of salt
100 gram of pure chocolate

Kitchentools
a saucepan for melting the chocolate and coconut oil
a bowl or 2
a spring form pan 24 centimetres
a food processor

How to make…….

Making first the bottom, get a food processor and crunch the cookies, poor in the oil and the milk. Now you will see the cookies are a little wet and you see a crumbled dough.
Now take the spring and rub it full with some oil, and place the bottom on the bottom 😉

Time for the filling!
Put all the ingredients together except for the chocolate, mix this very well without lumps. Leave this in the bowl of the food processor. Get the chocolate and another bowl, melt the chocolate au bain marie poor in also one cup of the mixture you have left in the food processor. Now you have the dark colour of the cheesecake.

Get the bottom and poor in the white mixture you have left in the food processor spread it equal on the bottom so the bottom is totally covered, in the middle of the cake above the white mixture you poor the chocolate mixture, and now spread it over all the area, get a chopstick and make circles or other shapes in the filling, just practise and you see nice lines.

Time for the finishing touch, put the spring form in the oven (on 175 degrees Celsius) till the top of the pie bulges and the sides of the pie are a little tanned. (like 50 minutes).
Get the pie and cool down for 20 minutes. After, you make place in your fridge for the pie and set aside for 3 hours at least, but for one night is much better 🙂

Yes it’s ready for serving, nice with some whipped cream from coconut milk!
Enjoy………don’t eat the pie at once you will get sick
