Vegan "Flourless" Chocolate Cake Recipe
You can make this cake batter in a Vita-Mix or a food processor, following the method explained in my recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake (the recipe with eggs and butter). Easy. Easy.
Place the chocolate pieces in the Vita-Mix (or a high speed blender container); add the hot coffee and heated hemp milk. Cover tightly- use caution with hot liquids. Turn on the mixer to high. Blend until chocolate pieces are melted. Add the vanilla extract, and pumpkin puree. Cover. Blend a minute.
Add the brown sugar, buckwheat flour, tapioca, egg replacer, xanthan gum, sea salt, baking powder, cinnamon or ginger. Cover. Blend on high for a minute. Turn it off (unplug it for safety if you have kids nearby). Open the top and using a plastic spatula scrape down the sides if any flour is sticking to the sides- if you're using a food processor instead, do the same. Cover. Plug back in.
Chilling creates a dense fudgy cake. I froze some pieces and tried one ice cold from the freezer- it tasted like a Fudgsicle.
