As delicious as a candy bar, this delicate dessert whips up in an instant. Use prepared chocolate syrup to garnish the cake. If you really want to fancy it up, make your own fudge sauce, and drizzle it on before serving.

  • 2 12-oz. pkg. soft silken tofu
  • 4 Tbs. confectioners' sugar
  • 1 Tbs. almond extract, or to taste
  • 1 8-oz. pkg. almond paste
  • 2 cups sliced almonds, toasted, for garnish


Tear angel food cake into about 2x4-inch rectangles, and put about half of them into 3-quart serving dish.

Put tofu, sugar, almond extract and almond paste into blender or food processor, and purée until smooth. Pour half mixture over cake pieces, and top with remaining cake. Pour remaining mixture over cake, and garnish with almonds and drizzles of chocolate syrup. Chill, or serve immediately.
