Rich and Chewy Gateau Chocolat Made with Silken Tofu

No butter used! Rich and chewy gateau chocolat made with just 6 ingredients, including silken tofu.

Ingredients: 18 cm

Chocolate bar (55 g)
2 bars
Heavy cream
100 ml
Silken tofu
100 -150 g
30 g
Pancake mix
50 g


1. Mash drained silken tofu to a paste. Separate the egg yolks and egg whites. Line a cake pan with parchment paper.
2. Make meringue with the egg whites. Add the sugar in 2 batches and beat the mixture until stiff peaks form.
3. Put the heavy cream in a heat-resistant bowl and heat it up in a microwave. Do not let it boil.
4. Break the chocolate bars into small pieces and melt in the microwave. Once the chocolate is halfway melted, remove from the microwave and stir with a spatula until the chocolate is completely melted.
5. Preheat the oven. Mix the heavy cream that's been heated up into the melted chocolate from Step 4 a little at a time.
6. Mix the beaten egg yolks and silken tofu into the mixture from Step 5.
7. Add in the meringue in 2 batches. Fold the mixture, scraping the bottom of the bowl.
8. Add in the pancake mix. Once mixed, pour the mixture into the pan and smooth out the surface. Bake at 170℃ for about 40 minutes.
9. Let cool, and chill in the refrigerator. Remove from the pan, and it's done. Top with powdered sugar or whipped cream if you like.
10. This is a gateau chocolat with sliced banana in it.
11. This one is the matcha version. I used white chocolate + matcha.
