Preparation steps


Separate the eggs and whip the egg whites to medium peak adding in the salt. In a stand mixer, cream agave syrup with the butter. Add egg yolk. Combine flour, baking powder and cocoa and sift into the butter and sugar mixture,mixing until a smooth batter forms. Fold in the beaten egg white until mixture is homogeneous, do not over mix.


Grease a spring-form pan. Pour in the batter, smooth it down and bake at 180°C/ 350°F (convection 160 °C/325°F) for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool down in pan.


In the meantime, stir the pudding powder with 5-6 tbsp. coconut milk until smooth. Put the remaining coconut milk, coconut sugar and 2 Tablespoons of coconut flakes in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir in the pudding powder and bring to a boil while stirring and then let it cool down.


Soak gelatin in cold water. Whip 1/2 cup of heavy cream to stiff peak. Warm the remaining cream slightly in a pot and dissolve the bloomed gelatin squeezing out any excess water. Stir in 4 tbsp. of the coconut pudding mixture to temper it. Add the remaining coconut pudding and whisk until dissolved and homogeneous and cooled slightly. Fold in the whipped cream until it comes together and smooth the cream on top of the chocolate cake. Chill for at least 1 hour.


Coarsely chop the dark chocolate and melt it with the coconut oil over a double boiler, let it cool down a little. In the meantime, carefully remove the cake from the pan. Coat the cake with the chocolate icing. Sprinkle with remaining coconut flakes and let it firm in the fridge before serving about 10 minutes.
