Preheat oven to 165 degrees Celsius.

In a medium bowl, combine ground almonds and whole wheat flour. Cut in margarine until a dough is formed. Press dough into the bottom and half-way up the sides of a 23cm springform pan.

In a blender or food processor, crumble the tofu. Add sugar, cocoa, oil, non-dairy milk, rum and vanilla. Process until smooth and creamy. Pour filling into crust.

Bake in the pre-heated oven for 75 minutes, or until filling is set.

Allow to cool on a rack and then chill thoroughly in refrigerator before removing from the pan.
