Raw Chocolate Cake
3/4 cup almonds, soaked for 30 minutes if you have time
1/2 cup dried coconut
1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
1-2 tablespoons almond or peanut butter
1-2 tablespoon cacao powder
water, as needed Filling:
sweetener, to taste (I use coconut sugar, maple syrup, dates, or apple juice)
3-4 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder
vanilla essence or fresh orange juice, to taste
3/4 cup soaked irish moss, and blended well with water Chocolate sauce, optional:
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
cacao powder, to taste
1. For crust, grind together the first 5 crust ingredients until you get a crumbly base type mixture. I did it in the Vita-mix. Add water if needed, and press into a cake tin.
2. For filling, in a powrful blender, mix the filling ingredients together until you get a super-thick chocolaty moussey-type consistency. I blended this in the Vita-Mix.
3. Decorate with coconut and fruit of your choice. The irish moss gives it a special jelly type texture, enabling you to cut the cake. For chocolate sauce, mix chocolate sauce ingredients, and drizzle over top, if desired.
If you don't have irish moss, add 1-2 avocados and 1/2-1 cup soaked cashew nuts into the mix and blend on high until thick. Pour on to base, and put in refrigerator or freezer to set. Sweeten to taste.
