Coconut Yogurt Cake

As a big fun of coconut I’m always happy to experiment with this ingredient. Its low carb and perfect for diabetic baking and cooking. This cake is simply delicious. Just imagine soft, cloud like coconut mousse on chocolate base topped with blueberries and jelly. It’s a perfect cake for summer and I can guarantee that you will like it.  

Ingredients:
Base:
150g ground almond
30g cocoa powder
2 tbsp. powdered xylitol
1 egg
2 tbsp. coconut oil
Coconut mousse:
250 ml coconut cream
500 g greek style yogurt
8 tbsp. powdered xylitol
1 tsp. coconut essence
4 tsp. gelatine dissolved in 1/6 glass hot water
Jelly topping:
1 sachet sugar free jelly (you will need about 300ml)
200g blueberries
Coconut for decoration
Preparation:
Base:
Preheat oven to 180C. Place all the ingredients for the base in a large bowl and mix well together. Form a bowl from dough and press evenly into 20cm square baking tin (lined with baking paper). Bake for about 10 minutes and set aside to cool down.

Coconut mousse:
Dissolve gelatine in hot water and stir well (there shouldn’t be any lumps). Set aside to cool down slightly.
In mixing bowl place the chilled coconut cream. Beat (using electric mixer) until stiff (note: whipped coconut cream is not as stiff as whipped heavy cream).
Add yogurt, spoon after spoon, whisking constantly. Beat at high speed for a few minutes. At the end add the powdered xylitol and coconut essence and beat for further few minutes.
Add 2 tbsp. yogurt mixture to dissolved gelatin and mix well. Pour it to the yogurt mixture beating constantly. 
Pour the whole mixture on cooled down base and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or until well set. 

Jelly topping:
Prepare jelly and cool it down completely. Arrange blueberries on the set cake and slowly pour the jelly over blueberries. Refrigerate until jelly well set.
Enjoy :)
