I am writing this while relishing the last leftovers of the recipe, which I will introduce you to in just a second. Unfortunately, my plate now is not as nice looking as in the photos, with only one piece left, but the taste remains untouched by any aesthetics. So – today I want to introduce you to a cake. And not just any. A raw vegan Chocolate Baileys “Cheese” Cake with an Espresso Chocolates Ganache. Sounds fancy, well, it is! However, it is fairly easy to make.
It was Baileys who gave me the idea for this cake when they sent me their new vegan Baileys Almande and asked if I would develop a recipe with it. As for me the perfect dessert involves chocolate the ground work was already done right away. And it just had to be a cake. Not only for purely aesthetic reasons, but you can really score points if you show up for a homecooked dinner with friends or family and discreetly (or not) take a cake out of your bag, from which everyone can snack before the actual meal.
The cakes base – of course, also in the general chocolate theme – you can eat without hesitation. That’s the beauty of the “raw cakes”. I’ve also planned the quantities so that you can snack a little on the side. You’re welcome!
The filling consists mainly of crushed cashews, which have prevailed in the healthy food blogger universe as a vegan cheesecake. Justified? Ochja, so half. But it actually creates a super delicious, creamy mass, if you let the cashews in advance soak in water in peace. In combination with dark chocolate and the almond Baileys creates an extraordinary triangle of taste, so it is extremely difficult to eat only one piece at a time ..
This blog post was created in cooperation with Baileys.
