Ingredients

STRAWBERRY COULIS:

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, sift cocoa, pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt. In a blender, combine maple syrup, corn oil, tofu, soy milk, vanilla extract and orange juice. Blend until the mixture achieves a smooth and even consistency. Add the wet ingredients to the sifted dry ones. Spoon the batter into oiled a floured star-shaped individual cake pans, filling them no more than 3/4 of the way full. Place about 10 chocolate chips in the center of the batter in the mold to form a "gooey" center. Bake the cakes for 15 to 18 minutes.
  2. Glaze: Sift the cocoa. Whisk it together with maple syrup, corn oil and vanilla. On a low flame, stirring constantly, heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Refrigerate until glaze cools.

STRAWBERRY COULIS:

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
  1. In a food processor combine the strawberries, maple syrup, and apple juice. Process until mixture is smooth, being careful not to over-process the berries or they will discolor. Add more apple juice as necessary if sauce is too thick.
  2. Strain mixture through a fine sieve into a nonreactive bowl. Stir in the liqueur. This coulis will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
