😍Let’s Cook – roots veg into cake and mash… 😋

😍On this episode of [ Let’s Cook with Teelip ] – roots veg – into cake and mash.

Puréed carrots and sweet yams to make cakes and potatoes into yummy mash! 🤩

👍It’s healthier to use it to build the bulk of the cake with coconut flour and raisins / cranberries so all natural sweetness! Added sour cream, soy milk and butter, even some yeast as I wanted to test how it will affect the texture, it does have some leavening effect but not enough to counter the density of the roots veg purée, but still it has the slight bread chewiness in it. Eat it with home made chocolate butter cream! Delish 😋

Homage to my childhood 80s and it’s Stranger Things day!!

🍰My first try at a fancy multi-layered chocolate cake!😋

😍MY FIRST EVER try at a fancy decorated multi-layered cake!! 🍰
And it’s delicious too! 👍“Low” carbs & sweetness but oh man so chocolatey YUM 😋

😜 haha it’s not the prettiest as I am experimenting and learning along the way on my own, how to make chocolate decorations with sugarless couverture chocolate. I had chocolate cake, chocolate mousse and pumpkin purée from my previous baked that I made from scratch. So I thought might as well turn them into one gorgeous layered cake! So I was looking around my kitchen for domes to form the mold of this layered cake. Granted, I don’t have professional equipment and techniques (yet), but I hacked up some things that is dome-like such as the glass bowl, ice cream scoop, microwave plastic boiler, and even a glass test tube end, haha 😂

But hey hey it’s fun project and i’m sure I can qualify now for the Netflix reality baking competition SHOW “Nailed It” (https://youtu.be/cTW0fUlW42I) 🤣

Anyhoo… I enjoyed baking various concoction and testing various low carbs ingredients such as pumpkin purée and almond / coconut flour or stevia sweetener and Low G.I. Coconut sugar. I did use honey too but limited it’s portion as I used banana and the sweetener to coax out the taste and flavour. I had all sorts of chocolate in it too from chips to couverture to sea salt caramel and powder too. I try to make it fancy so it’s appealing to eat too, afterall we eat with our eyes first! Haha yeah I know the layers are lob-sided … haha that’s what I get when u try to hack the layers together.

The layers are:

  1. Inner most is just pure honey.
  2. Pumpkin purée with coconut sugar sorbet.
  3. Salted sour cream / cream cheese / butter mousse.
  4. Chocolate cake using almond flour with raisins and cranberries bits.
  5. Base is 90sec keto bread using coconut flour and cinnamon powder.
  6. Outer coating is a chocolate in Agar-agar jelly with Chia seeds and banana purée.
  7. Chocolate drizzles with sesame seeds and coconut sugar sprinkles with raisins and cranberries.
  8. Topped with some chocolate decorations I made with the couverture chocolates.

Will keep learning and being inspired by professional Bakers and Chocolate Artists and chefs of all professions! GAMBATEI ! Gotta keep improving my skills! 👍😄
