EASTER DESSERTS

After an intense spinning class with speed drills and lots of hills this morning, I found time to prepare some goodies for our Easter celebration with family tomorrow. Desserts are crucial on beautiful days like these... One of the things I have grown to like is dark chocolate.
I made a cake, following a recipe and got perfection. Dark chocolate Ganache Tart is an amazing treat - rich in flavor, creamy in texture and it has a crunchy crust with an edge of celtic sea salt. If a cake has ever been dense - it is this one, I feel like it will take weeks to finish it.
The recipe is made of Debbie Lee and goes something like this:

For the crust you need:
3/4 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cup fine nut flour (I used a mix of almonds and hazelnuts)
1/4 cup coconut butter
pinch of sea salt
In a standing mixer with an S-blade ix all the ingredients till it becomes a dough. Press the dough evenly into a 9-inch pan. Cover with plastic and let sit in the fridge to chill for 1 hour. 

For the Ganache filling:
2 1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup coconut butter
Blend all the filling ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into the chilled tart crust. place in the refrigerator for a few hours. 
Instead of the normal piece of cake - I cut my cake up in small squares and will serve it as a little nibble treat.

Another dessert I`m serving is a creamed citrus salad; blood oranges, some grapefruit and a couple of regular oranges cut up mixed with vanilla whipped cream. One bowl has the mixed version, another bowl has just the fruits. I will have a bowl of the citrus fruit as my appetizer. Becaus fruit is best eaten on an empty stomach.
Happy Easter everyone =)
