Isn’t it a nice chocolate cake ideal for coffee time ?
It tastes great, I can tell you.
And you think, it’s indulging… Not at all. It’s healthy.
Why ? No flour, no butter, no other dairy, not much sugar… and tons of fibers. Plus I eat my greens…
The secret ingredient is okara
Click here to see how it’s made. We can also buy it easily and very cheaply in Japan.
Egg (1), sugar (as you like) , cocoa powder (3 ts) and okara (50g). Mix in this order, whisk well. Bake 20 minutes (180 C).
(adapted from this Japanese recipe)
N.B. The proportion worked with home-made okara. The okara I get from the store is dryer. So I have to had water to the batter, then it is the same.
It really has a texture of cake.Perfect. Not dry. Not gooey.
Goes so well with mint and blueberries…

these look fabulous, i am going to have to get the okara on the internet though.. no chance of buying it here..and no flour.. great! c
I don’t think fresh “okara” is sold on internet, it’s a fresh product. You can find it in the China(Asia)Towns where they make tofu daily. In other places, your best option is to buy organic soy beans and make yours, it’s very easy (see the post “milk your beans”) : https://dailyfoodporn.wordpress.com/2011/09/23/milk-your-beans/
Interesting idea to use okara.

My husband is making a run to a Japanese food store in Manhattan today, so I’ve asked him to look for it there!
Beautiful looking cakes! I myself am partial to chocolate!
