This is a New Texture! Is it Baked? Raw? Tofu Gateau au Chocolat

Yay! This came out so delicious! This is an amazingly rich chocolate cake without oil, sugar, or flour! It is crispy on top and moist inside - a new sensation! Easy to make, requiring only a hand mixer.

Ingredients: Pound cake or 18 cm round cake

Tofu
100 g
Chocolate
100 g
Eggs (separated)
2
Cocoa powder or cornstarch (*1)
20 g
Brandy
2 teaspoons (8 g)
Milk (optional *2)
up to 2 tablespoons (30 g)

Steps

1. Heat chocolate and milk in the microwave to soften. Whisk egg whites until stiff peaks are formed. Preheat the oven to 340F/170C.
2. In a separate bowl, with the same hand mixer used in Step 1, combine and mix all other ingredients well (for a smoother consistency, strain everything first).
3. Take 1/3 of the beaten egg whites and add into the bowl in Step 2. Mix well. Then put everything back into the bowl from Step 1. Fold with a rubber spatula to combine.
4. Pour into a baking mold. Bake for 40 minutes at 340F/170C. While baking, cover with aluminum foil. It is done when you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean in the middle. After it has cooled, cover with plastic wrap.
5. If you use 20 g of cocoa powder, the cake will be rich in bitter chocolate flavor. If you use 20 g of cornstarch, it will be a lighter cake. You can decide how to portion the 20 g depending on your preference. The version shown in the photos only uses cocoa powder. I like this version.
6. Milk is not necessary, but if you use it, you can enjoy the spongy, "raw" texture.
