INGREDIENTS

CRUST

  • 16 original oreos or oreo style cookies
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter

FILLING

  • 1 ½ cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 10.5 oz vegan dark chocolate
  • 12.5 oz silken tofu
  • 5.5 oz vegan cream cheese
  • ¼ cup cacao powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange zest

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

  • Vegan dark chocolate mini eggs
  • Orange slices

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Add the freshly squeezed orange juice to a saucepan and bring to a simmer over a medium heat. Continue to simmer for about 10-20 minutes until the mixture has reduced to 150ml. Once reduced, transfer the liquid to a heat resistant jar and it in a cold water bath to bring the orange reduction to room temperature.
  • Meanwhile, to make the crust add the cookies and vegan butter to a food processor and blitz for about 30 seconds until evenly mixed. Line the bottom and sides of a 7.5 or 8" cake tin (with removable base) with some parchment paper. Press the cookie mixture into the base of the cake tin, and smooth it out with a spatula or flat bottomed glass, making sure it is compact. Set aside in the fridge.
  • For the filling, melt the chocolate over a bain-marie (double boiler). Add the orange juice reduction, melted chocolate, silken tofu, vegan cream cheese, cacao powder, vanilla extract and orange zest to a high speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Transfer the filling into the cake tin using a spatula to smooth is out. To get the swirl effect on top, place the cake tin on top of a turntable, and use your spatula to make a swirl print on the surface of the cake whilst spinning the turntable. Place in the fridge to set for 3-4 hours (or overnight if preferred).
  • Once set, remove the cake from the tin. You can use a blow torch to gently heat the sides of the pan to make it easier for the cake to slide out of the tin.
  • Garnish the cake with vegan mini chocolate eggs, chocolate shavings, orange slices or candied oranges.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge and consume within a 3-4 days, alternatively you can freeze any unused slices and defrost as needed.
