Ingredients

For the base

80g cashews

80g macadamias

50g almonds

45g buckwheat

45g desiccated coconut

45g rice malt or maple syrup

80g Medjool dates, pitted

Pinch of Himalayan salt

For the caramel centre

200g Medjool dates, pitted

60ml coconut oil, melted

110g almond butter

125ml maple syrup

¼ tsp vanilla powder

1/8 tsp Himalayan salt

For the chocolate topping

60g cacao butter

40g cacao powder

50ml maple syrup

Topping

¼ tsp flaked sea salt

 

Method

  1. Place the cashews, macadamias and almonds in a food processor then blitz to small pieces. Add the buckwheat, coconut, syrup and dates then continue to process. The mixture will start to combine; when that happens transfer it into a round 20cm cake tin lined with baking paper. Press the base evenly into the base of the tin and place in the freezer to firm up.
  2. Blend the dates, coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla powder and salt in the food processor. The mixture needs to be completely smooth so continue blending until all the lumps have disappeared. Spread the caramel over the set base and put the tin back into the freezer while you make the chocolate topping.
  3. Melt the cacao butter in a saucepan over a very low heat. Ensure it has completely melted, then combine the cacao butter with the cacao powder, maple syrup in a bowl. Whisk until you have a glossy mixture. Be careful not to allow it to seize. If you are in a cold environment, you must be very quick at this stage.
  4. Pour the chocolate topping over the caramel in the tin and push it around quickly with a silicone spatula to spread it well and leave swirls on the top. Place the cake into the freezer to set overnight.
  5. Remove from the freezer 10 minutes before you wish to serve the cake, to allow it ample time to thaw and be easy to cut. Sprinkle the flaked sea salt on top before serving.

Ingredients

For the meringues:

4  Dr. Oetker Free Range Egg White Powder Sachets
200g  Caster Sugar
Dr. Oetker Pink Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr. Oetker Yellow Extra Strong Food Colour Gel
Dr.Oetker Blue Extra Strong Food Colour Gel

To decorate:

100ml  Double cream, whipped
50g  Chocolate Mini Eggs

Method

  1. Heat oven to 140 C
  2. Make up the Egg White Powder as directed on pack and transfer to a large grease-free bowl.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, using a hand-whisk, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gradually add the caster sugar, one tablespoon at a time, whisking continuously until you have a shiny, stiff mixture.
  4. Spoon the meringue into three separate bowls and add 4-5 drops of one Dr. Oetker gel food colouring to each bowl. Stir the meringue through a few times to create a marbling effect with the food colouring – be careful not to over-stir.
  5. Place a piping bag with a star nozzle fitting in a jug and fold down the edges. Carefully fill the piping bag 2/3’s of the way with one of the meringue mixes. Twist the top of the piping bag to secure it.
  6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Pipe a small amount of meringue under each corner of the parchment paper to secure it.
  7. To pipe the meringues, start by piping a circle around 3” in diameter from the outside in. Pipe two more circles on top of the outer edge to complete, so you have a nest. Repeat this seven more times using all three meringue mixes.
  8. Transfer the meringues to the oven and bake for 1 hour. Once cooked, turn the oven off and leave the meringues in the oven for at least two hours, or overnight if possible.
  9. Once the meringues have cooled and set, pipe the whipped cream into the centre of the meringues. Top with mini chocolate eggs to serve.
