What do you do when you feel like a cake but don't have the time or patience to cook one? If you're me, you think outside the box and make a rice cake 'cake'!
This really hit the spot, the longer you leave it the softer it becomes but I was hungry so it was a combo of softer and crunchy rice cakes. The rich sweetness of the apple butter combined with the intensely creamy coyo (coconut yoghurt) that has a little kick of tartness was just perfect.
If you're after a sweeter 'cream' substitute feel free to add sweetener to the coyo or make your own out of whipped coconut cream and sweetener- personally I like don't like it *too* sweet but each to their own.. make something that you will love!
Chocolate Apple Butter Rice 'Cake'Makes 1 large serve (approximately 350 cals or 200 without coyo)
3 tbsp apple butter (apple butter = apple juice pulp + water or grated apple cooked for about a day in a slow cooker with cinnamon, lemon & stevia)
1/2 square grated dark chocolate- feel free to use more but a little goes a long way when you grate it!
3 thick brown rice cakes (get unsalted)
1/4 cup coyo- coconut yoghurt
1/4 cup frozen berries
- Spread rice cakes thickly with apple butter
- assemble the stack, rice cake, apple butter, coyo
- grate chocolate over apple butter
- garnish with berries and coyo
- grate extra chocolate over the top
- Enjoy every mouthful!
I loved this, it was so quick and easy- seriously everything was in the fridge so it was a 3 minute assembly job. My perfect dessert. I know this is an unusual use for rice cakes but it tasted great! What do you like eating on your rice cakes?
All the best,
