Ingredients
  1. Stuff you need
for the base
  1. 1 cup walnuts
  2. 1 cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  3. 1/4 cup raw cacao powder
  4. 100g pitted dates (soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes)
  5. 2 tbs. coconut oil
for the filling
  1. 2 cups raw cashews (soaked in water for about 1 hour)
  2. 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  3. 1/2 cup coconut oil
  4. 1/2 cup fresh or thawed frozen raspberries
  5. 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  6. 2 tbs. Natvia or 1/2 cup rice malt syrup
for the topping
  1. ¾ cup coconut oil melted
  2. ½ cup raw cacao powder
  3. ½ cup nut butter
  4. 1 tbs. Natvia or 1/4 cup rice malt syrup
Instructions
  1. Now What
  2. Line the base of a 24 cm spring form cake tin with baking paper.
  3. Start with the base. In a food processor (we use our Vitamix), place the walnuts, raw cacao powder and desiccated coconut.
  4. Whiz these ingredients until a fine meal forms.
  5. Transfer the meal into a large mixing bowl, leave this for now.
  6. Drain the soaked dates and place them into the food processor, along with the coconut oil.
  7. Whiz these until a smooth paste forms.
  8. Transfer the paste into the mixing bowl with the meal and mix together (you may need to get your hands dirty for this job!).
  9. Once it’s all combined, press the base into the cake tin, making sure you press it out evenly, covering the entire base.
  10. Place this into the freezer.
Now for the filling
  1. Drain and rinse the cashews and place them into the food processor.
  2. Whiz these until a crumbly, buttery paste forms.
  3. Now add the coconut milk, coconut oil, raw cacao and Natvia or Rice Malt Syrup.
  4. Whiz on high speed until completely smooth (this takes around 5 minutes).
  5. Add the raspberries and whiz on low for around 1 minute (less time if you want the raspberries more chunky).
  6. Take out the base from the freezer and spread the filling on top of the base.
  7. Place the cake into the freezer, you could leave the cake as is or make it super special with our topping below!
For the topping
  1. Mix all the topping ingredients in your blender (we use our Vitamix) until smooth, this will take around 5 minutes, the friction from the blender melts it all together nicely.
  2. Take the cake out of the freezer and drizzle the chocolate mixture onto the cake and place back into the freezer until the cake is fully set (about 1.5 hours).
  3. Store the leftover cake in the fridge. Delish. This is our new favourite cake!

  1. Hi
    are you able to advise me on a substitute to the cashews? (for the filling)
    Have a nut allergy but can do peanuts(legume) and hazelnuts and all seeds(yum)!!
    Was going to use Hazelnuts for the base instead of walnut – do you think this would be okay?
    Cheers
    look forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi Cathy! Thanks for your comment :) Hazelnuts will be AMAZING in the base, it just might be a little harder is all (as walnuts are such a soft nut). We think that hazelnuts would work perfectly for the filling too! Especially if you soak them a little longer (even try for over night) then rinse them before use. It will taste all kinds of delish… in fact, maybe we’ll try it out! We’ve also made our raw cakes with sunflower kernels before, the texture isn’t as smooth for the filling but works great for nut allergies :) Let us know how you go! e + c

  2. A real problem with using dates in these desert recipes is that they are not diabetic friendly. Dates have a glycemic index higher than table sugar, and are very high in calories. Do you have an alternative?
