Double Chocolate Cheesecake with Un-brie-lievable Ganache

Double Layer Chocolate Orange Cake
 4 flax eggs (4 tbsp ground flaxseed and 10 tbsp water)
 20 medjool dates, chopped
 2 oranges, zested and juiced
 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
 ¼ cup canola oil
 ½ cup maple syrup
 1 cup apple sauce
 1.50 cups cocoa powder
 4 cups almond flour (ground almonds)
 2 tsp baking powder
 1 tsp salt
Chocolate Brie Ganache
 ½ cup dark chocolate chips, melted
 2 wedges of Nuts For Cheese's Un-Brie-Lievable, chopped
 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
 2 tbsp cocoa powder
 2 tbsp maple syrup

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease two 8 inch cake pans with coconut oil, set aside. Cut out two circles of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pans and place on greased bottoms.


In a small ramekin, combine ground flaxseed and water, stir and let rest for 5 minutes.


In a small pot, combine ½ cup (125 mL) freshly squeezed orange juice with zest and dates. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


In a medium sized mixing bowl, add flax eggs, date and orange mixture along with apple cider vinegar, canola oil, maple syrup and applesauce. Mix until combined.


Fold in cocoa powder, almond flour, baking powder and salt.


Pour into prepared baking pans and bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.


Using a rubber spatula, combine all ganache ingredients until smooth and fluffy and spread on cake, garnish with orange zest.
