Chocolate Fig Cake Recipe INGREDIENTS
The chocolate mousse filling-
- -500 g silken tofu
- -2 dl or 3/4 cups caster sugar
- - 7 tbls agar-agar
- - 2 dl or 3/4 cups water
- -300 grams semi-sweet chocolate or sweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate will give this cake a richer taste
- -2 tsp of vanilla extract
- -280 grams of (fig) jam
- -200 grams of semi-sweet chocolate
Melt your cake base chocolate and then pour it into your cake pan. Put it in your fridge so that it settles. Meanwhile you can make your chocolate mousse filling.
Melt the filling chocolate and pour it into a mixing bowl together with your silken tofu, vanilla extract and caster sugar, mix everything together.
Pour the water into a saucepan and add your agar-agar, let them boil together for about 5 minutes stirring constantly. Use the agar-agar flakes, which are prepared a bit differently than agar-agar powder for example so it is important to check the instructions on your agar-agar packet and follow them. Pour the agar-agar mixture into your mixing bowl and mix it together with the silken tofu and chocolate, be fast and thorough.
By now your cake base should have settled, if it has settled pour the filling on top of it. Put the cake in the fridge again and let it sit for a couple of hours or overnight. After you have let it sit you can spread the jam on top of it carefully, don´t break the mousse. Then melt your topping chocolate and pour it on top of the cake, be careful once again and try to make the layer as thin as possible. Let it sit in the fridge until the topping sets.
Decorate the cake before serving with some chocolate decorations or figs. The chocolate fig cake recipe is ready...nice one !
