Vanillabrite's Delights

Vegan Chocolate Raspberry Torte

1 Cup Almonds, finely ground
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder, sifted
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Tablespoons Safflower Oil
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Salt
4 oz Broken Chocolate Pieces, 70+% Dark, Semi Sweet or mixed (check for absence of milk)
1/2 Package Firm Silken Tofu
3/4 Cups Frozen Raspberries

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Lightly spray or grease an 8″ cake or spring form pan, dusting it lightly with cocoa and removing any excess.
Finely grind the almonds in a food processor, adding a spoonful of the sugar, as necessary to keep it from clumping.

Transfer the ground almonds to a bowl.

Purée the tofu in the food processor, until very smooth, add the remaining sugar, cocoa, vanilla, oil and salt.
Using a glass bowl or a double boiler, heat water to a simmer in the lower pan to gently melt the chocolate above.

Pour the melted chocolate into the tofu, mixing to incorporate.

Add the ground almonds, pulsing just to combine.

Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan then evenly sprinkle the raspberries over the top.

Cover the raspberries with the remaining batter.

Bake for 45 – 50 minutes or until the sides have crackled and the center is firm.

Cool the cake completely in the pan or refrigerate until serving.

Run a knife around the edge and release the sides of the pan.

Dust with confectioners sugar and serve with a raspberry emulsion, if desired.
