orange & matcha truffles
“Come celebrate with us”, the fairies whisper. you’re not sure…
I made this layer cake today because i am currently studying for my A level exams and i needed to do something beautiful, or at least something that makes me happy. (Cause this cake went out to be slightly messy…) I know there has been a cake overdose in the food section lately and i’m not sorry. Cake is awesome, and when i’m stressed, i make cake. Yup. But don’t worry, i think i will be doing something tomorrow that includes vegetables (i’m serious!). Need to remember to take photos.
So about this cake. Yes, it does contain chocolate. Yes, it’s a bit messy, and yes, it’s decadent. But it’s damn delicious. Just believe me. I think it would have turned out even more delicious if i had left out the raspberry layer and the maca drizzle on top. The crust and the chocolate cream are already perfection on themselves. If you are as much into chocolate as i am, try leaving out the raspberry cream. If you’re not, try leaving out the chocolate cream. Or make the layer cake, well, a layer cake, by not leaving out anything. It will still be delicious.
The crust contains almonds, coconut flour, sesame seeds and cacao. I was surprised how *searching for a word* the texture was. It was firm just like cookie dough that has been put in the fridge for an hour. The sesame seeds make it somehow special and it tastes really good. And we’re talking about the crust here.
The chocolate layer is soo delicious. Probably the tahini is what makes it perfect. I think i have been overusing canned coconut milk and am trying to slow down a bit on that, but i couldn’t stop myself from including it in here to add some extra creaminess…
The raspberry layer is pretty amazing too, i think it would make an awesome cookie filling. It’s just cashews, raspberries and some other stuff. Oh and then there’s the maca drizzle on top. Just wanted to add something special on top and decided to go for maca…
