Vegan, gluten-free chocolate cake

Our vegan, gluten free interpretation of the French moelleux-au-chocolat
Preheat the oven to 150 °C.
  1. On low heat, melt the cacao butter until liquid.
  2. Melt the chocolate into the butter.
  3. Add the agave syrup, mix in vanilla (to taste, we used about ½ tsp).
  4. Mix in the pear preserve and mix until smooth.
  5. While the cacao butter is melting, take another bowl and mix together all the dry ingredients to obtain a chocolate-colored mixture.
  6. Add the liquid mixture to the flour, and whisk briskly (the mixture will start setting if you let it cool down): to keep it smooth you need to be fast!
  7. Add the coconut cream, spoon by spoon, into the mixture, to reach a mousse-like consistency; it should basically “fold” over itself when poured.
  8. Scoop it into a cupcake pan (it should make 4 to 6 mini-cakes).
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes. As you remove them from the oven, the consistency should still be soft (they will become firmer as they cool down).
