Instructions
Base
  1. Mix the dates and the chestnut flour in a blender to a sticky mass and press into your springform.
Chocolate layer
  1. Mix the almonds in your blender/mixer to medium-sized pieaces and set apart for the moment.
  2. Melt the coconut oil and mix with the other ingredients to a smooth mass. Then add the almonds and distribute these evenly over your mixture.
  3. Add ingredients to taste in case needed. Then pour/press the mixture onto your base.
Chestnut almond layer
  1. Mix the chestnut flour in a cup or blender/mixer with the almond milk and xylitol. Heat and when boiling add the agar. Let it boil for about 2 minutes while continuously stirring.
  2. Pour the layer onto the rest of the cake and set in the fridge to stiffen up for an hour or so.

Base and hearts
White layer
Black layer
Servings: people
Instructions
Base
  1. Grind the figs and almonds in a blender or mixer to a sticky mass. In case they are not sticky enough, add some figs.
  2. Save some of the "dough" for the hearts. Press the rest into a spring form lined with baking paper so that it forms a firm base. Put your spring form while you work on the rest.
White and black layers
  1. Bring the ingredients for the two layers to boil in two separate pots. Wash the millet before boiling. Personally I tend to add the xylitol and coconut sugar during the blender, but you can also choose to boil them with the other ingredients.
  2. Boil until the millet is soft and like porridge. Be careful that your millet isn't too dry and burns. In that case, add some milk or water.
  3. First blend one of the layers to a smooth mass. Taste to check if it needs any extra sweeteners or other ingredients. Your mixture should be liquid enough to pour it into the spring form but not so liquid that it won't stiffen up in the fridge. Keep the mixture of the first layer in a container that's easy to pour it out off later.
  4. After cleaning your blender, blend the other layer. The same advice goes for this layer.
  5. Now the magic. Pour some of the white mixture onto your base, more or less the amount to make it touch the edges of the cake form. Then pour some of the black mixture right in the middle of the white mixture, and let gravity do its work so that it floats a little towards the sides. Then pour some of the white mixture right in the middle, then black, until everything's finished or the spring form is full. I had enough to make two extra little cakes. Your cake is now ready. Put it in the fridge.
Hearts
  1. Juice or buy some beet juice and add this to the remaining almond/fig mixture. Also add some melted coconut oil which will help the now rather wet "dough" to stiffen up in the fridge.
  2. Mix everything and form hearts with your hands. Put them on saucers lined with baking paper to stiffen up in the fridge.
  3. Your cake should be hard and edible after about 2 hours in the fridge. Otherwise put in the freezer for a bit. Put the hearts on top of the cake before serving.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup millet
  • 7 cups vegetable milk for example oat, soy, almond or coconut milk
  • 8-20 dates the number depends on the sweetness of your dates and how sweet you like it
  • 3-4 tbsp cocoa or use carob powder if you don't want cocoa
  • 1 dash salt
  • red fruit
  • almonds
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Put the millet, vegetable milk, salt, pitted dates and cocoa powder in a small pot.
  2. Heat on a low fire for about 25 minutes until the mixture is thickish. Stir frequently.
  3. Blend with a stick blender or normal blender until it's become a pudding. Not thick enough? Add some dates or cook for a while longer until thick. Too thick? Add some milk.
  4. Sprinkle with red fruit and almonds. For taste, I would advise to let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, but it can also be eaten straight away!
