orange & matcha truffles
“Come celebrate with us”, the fairies whisper. you’re not sure…
Today was (and still is) a pretty lazy day. What i primarily did was – food. I made chocolate and ice cream (recipe coming soon). My first self made vegan ice cream. And i was amazed at how good it worked. Vegan food can be soo awesome. Especially sweets, haha.
This chocolate tart is not today’s creation, i made it a few weeks ago. But it tastes soo good. I don’t know, i think i ate about 3 pieces. Orange and chocolate are such a good match. I reused the filling in my mum’s birthday cake last week, but this one focuses only on the orange and chocolate flavor. So it’s probably a good idea for christmas… Maybe i’ll make it again then. Or maybe i’ll create something new, cause i usually can’t get myself to making the same new recipe twice, because there are still so many other things i want to try!
As mentioned in the recipe for mum’s birthday cake, the secret of the out-of-this-world orange flavor of the filling, but also the base, is the orange zest. It makes the whole thing taste way more orange-like than it would if you only used orange juice.
I gave some of this tart to my anti-vegan friends who always mock me for being vegan… Their reaction: ‘Wow, this is good… this is really good! What did you put in there?’ Mission accomplished, i’d say!
That’s was the making of, and here comes the recipe:
orange chocolate cheesecake tart
Have fun ‘baking’, and, more important, eating!
