Chocolate Tofu Cake

Chocolate Tofu Cake

I once made a chocolate truffle cake, with a really dense texture and it was oh so decadently good. I know how rich that cake was and had to keep telling myself not to be greedy. I ended up gifting half of it away because otherwise, I would not be able to stop myself.

This cake though, this one that looks almost exactly like that dense chocolate cake, with the texture that is also almost exactly the same, is another story alltogether.

This cake is healthy! There is no flour, no butter, other than the little tiny amount to grease the pan, and no cream. So what is this magic? This chocolate tofu cake is made of silken tofu, chocolate (use your favorite dark/bittersweet chocolate for this), cocoa powder, eggs, sugar, a bit of milk and rum.

This cake almost has no rise whatsoever. I baked this in a standard 9”x5” loaf pan and it was barely half-filled when the baking was done. So if you have a smaller pan, like the 8”x4” loaf pan, I think it will work much better in terms of filling the pan. But no matter, although my cake is rather short looking, they taste amazing, and it is alright to eat a couple of these in one seating without feeling any guilt :)
