Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. To prepare the crust, place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix together with your hands until you get a sticky dough.
  3. Grease or line your muffin tins/molds and divide the dough into equal parts. Press each ball of dough into the muffin mold with your fingers and make sure to also press the dough up on the sides.
  4. Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes (depending on how crunchy you want the crust).
  5. In the meantime, prepare the custard layer. For the chocolate custard, first place the soy milk, maple syrup and cacao in a sauce pan on medium heat.
  6. Combine with a spatula until all the cacao has dissolved. Add the tapioca flour and agar agar and bring to a boil, while stirring. Continue stirring and boil for 10 seconds, until it gets custardy. Take it off the heat and pour into the crusts until half full. Repeat the same step with the vanilla custard.
  7. Place the cakes into the fridge and let them cool down. In the meantime, prepare the coconut whipped cream, by simply mixing all ingredients together in a chilled bowl.
  8. Place into a pipping bag and apply on top of the cakes. Sprinkle with cacao powder and fresh berries and serve.
