GBBO Week 7 - Vegan Chocolate Orange Cheesecake


I loved that they did Vegan week this week on Bake off. It really spreads a lot more inspiration for other bakers to gain more ideas on how to bake with only vegan ingredients. I'm not Vegan, but I love experimenting when I bake because there are so many ingredients to try and that's where all the fun is, even if it doesn't turn out perfect first time around!

Things are about to get spooky around here as well. Behold my Chocolate Orange "Cheesecake".  I promise it's so good, I've licked all the bowls in sight. Tag me on Instagram @bakelikeavegan_ if you try this 😊

Method


✿Preheat your oven to 200℃ and grease a 20cm Spring-form cake tin. 
✿Make your base layer. Place the oats in a food processor and blend into an oat flour.
✿Put all of your base ingredients into a bowl and mix together until well combined and a bit sticky. Transfer to cake tin and press down evenly ensuring there aren't any gaps. 
✿Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven to cool with foil off.
✿Make your orange layer. In a Food Processor, add cashews, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract and orange juice and blitz until smooth. Then add your orange zest and salt and blitz again. 
✿Pour orange layer on top of base and put into the freezer for 30 minutes to set.
✿Make chocolate mousse. Cut your avocados in half, remove the stones and scoop out the flesh into a food processor. Add all other ingredients and blitz until a smooth mixture. 
✿Pour chocolate layer on top of orange layer.
✿Meanwhile melt your white chocolate and place in a piping bag to decorate. Then place cheesecake into freezer for 30 minutes. Enjoy!
