This recipe makes about 18-20 cake pucks
2 1/4 cup fine almond flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup cane sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups halved frozen cherries
1/2 cup frosting
1. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl whisk together sugar, eggs and vanilla. Add the egg and sugar mixture to the medium bowl and mix with a hand mixer for 1-2 minutes. (make sure not to over mix). Then gently fold in the frozen cherries until evenly mixed.
2. Transfer batter to a greased 9x13 baking pan and bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until golden. Allow cake to cool and then crumble. Mix crumbled cake with frosting until fully combined.
3. Use a medium cookie scoop to transfer the mix to the small cake puck mold. Use hands or bottom of a measuring cup to gently pat the top of the cake puck centers down so they are level with the mold. Scrape off any excess mix.
4. Place mold in the fridge for 1.5-3 hours or freezer (45 min) to chill.
1. Melt 17 ounces chocolate + a spoonful of crisco or coconut oil for 1 minute. Continue to microwave in increments of 20 seconds until chocolate silkily slides off your spoon (110 F-120 F).
2. Place larger mold (with the Benty Cakes logo on the bottom) on the plastic tray and fill one cavity half full with melted chocolate.
3. Place chilled center on melted chocolate. Gently apply even pressure as you slowly press the center down until chocolate comes up from the sides and covers the top of the center.
4. Scrape off any excess chocolate. If there is not enough chocolate to cover the center. Add chocolate and scrape away excess.
5. Tap the mold tray on the counter to eliminate air bubbles.
6. Repeat these steps until all cavities are filled. Start out doing one at a time, once you are comfortable begin doing 2-3 at a time. Take care not to do too many at the same time as chocolate will set.
7. Because the centers are cold your pucks will set up quickly. Usually it takes about 15 minutes on the counter depending on how warm your house is. You can stick them in the fridge if you're in a hurry.
8. You can tell your pucks are ready to pop out if the mold pulls away cleanly. if you see any chocolate stick as you gently pull, they are not set yet.
The most satisfying part is popping out your shiny, professional looking Pucks!!
