orange chocolate cheesecake tart (deliciousness overload)

2016-11-26

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

base:

  • 1 cup ground nuts (almonds or hazelnuts work well)
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

filling:

  • 2 cups cashews, soaked
  • juice of 1,5 oranges
  • zest of 1 orange
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp cacao
  • 1/2 can coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup (or any liquid sweetener)
  1. For the base, first ground the nuts and then mix everything in a food processor until a sticky dough forms.
  2. Lay out a large cake pan with parchment paper and put the dough in there. With a spoon or something similar, press the dough evenly firm, also covering the sides. Put in the fridge or freezer.
  3. For the filling, mix all the ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Should smell and taste super delicious.
  4. Spread the filling evenly on top of the base. Put in the freezer for about 2 hours. After that, your cake is ready to eat!
