Sweet Treats

Mango yogurt cake

 

I love those vegan cakes. They are so full of flavor and everyone is surprised how delicious they are!

It's such a great thing how something healthy can be so good! Whoever thought that eating a vegan diet is boring or very restrictive can be convinced of the contrary with cakes like this one.

I like the raw cakes with a date and nut crust the most. This crust is so super crunchy, sweet and combined with the filling of the cake just amazing! Also my mother who is really skeptical with vegan cakes likes this one a lot!

So for mother's day we made a mango yogurt cake with such a crust. And my mother liked it and we even more!

I've never thought of something like this, but my sister came up with a great idea!

The filling of this cake actually corresponds to her favorite breakfast smoothie. Mango, banana and orange is the combination she likes the best, especially in summer, because this is really refreshing.

So when she made her morning smoothie, she suddenly thought of making a cake out of her smoothie. A cake which would be as refreshing and delicious as this smoothie. And as healthy and full of good stuff.

With a little agar agar, a bit of vanilla powder and orange soy yogurt, we made this cake's filling. We cooked everything in a pot, then placed it on the nutty crust and it became a wonderful yogurt cake when cooling down. The consistency was perfect and we had our new favorite vegan cake and also something yummy for mother's day!

 

Mango yogurt cake

 

Ingredients:

 

The crust:

 

- 1 1/2 cup almond meal (or processed almonds)

- 1/3 cup coconut flakes

- 1 cup dates

- 2 tbsp maple syrup

- a pinch of cinnamon

 

The filling:

- 1 mango

- 1 banana

- 1 orange

- 3/4 cup orange soy yogurt (Provamel)

- 1/2 tsp vanilla powder

- 1 tsp agar agar

 

Procedure:

 

1. Soak the dates in hot water for some minutes.

2. If you are using almonds in a whole, put them in your food processor and process until you get a nice flour. It doesn't matter if there are still some bigger pieces.

3. Drain the dates and add them together with the coconut flakes, the maple syrup and the cinnamon to your food processor. Process until you get a nice sticky dough.

4. Place a baking paper on your baking pan and evenly press the dough with your fingers on the bottom of the baking pan.

5. Place the ingredients for the filling except the agar agar in your food processor and process until it has reached a smoothie like consistency.

6. Now add everything to a small pot and slowly start heating it, constantly stirring.

7. Stir in the  agar agar, bring it to a boil, then switch off the heat and pour everything in the baking pan on top of the dough.

8. Let it cool down, when it is cool enough, place it in the fridge. The filling will become solid now.

9. Leave it in the fridge for at least two hours before serving.
