The picture of the coconut from last post turned into a label for my own delicious homemade coconut butter. I thought I have the pic on the USB key but appearantly it’s not here.
Before I share the recipe for Chocolicious raw cake (which I’m so excited to do!), there is the collection of Chocoholic almond bars, including a Suprise-Me Bar, which was sent to Mali, the highest bidder of my almond bars in Katie’s Vegan Bake Sale for Japan.
The batch includes following bars:
-Almond Beauty Delight
-Chocolate Cranberry Love
-Amazing Choco Amande
-Chocolicious Almond Sweetie
-(plus a bonus bar!) Surprise-Me Bar
Hope the batch arrived safely to its final destination!
Oh by the way this Surprise-Me Bar is inspired by Katie’s Samoas Bars which I made later and turned out A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! No kidding, I gave one bar to the girl whom I teach English, and next time we met, the first thing she asked was “Can you give me the recipe for the bar you gave me last time?”.
I felt flattered
Ok, and where’s the cake???
I improved the recipe (read: adapted it to my tastebuds) for Raw Cashew Dreamcake I made last time.
I tried a tiny edge of it, and it was to die for! I LOVE the combination of flavours which the final cake consisted of. So while making layers I did a taste-check if something needs to be added (luckily, since then I added more lemon juice and more jam).
Chocolicious Raw Cake
75g dates, 30g coconut flour, 1 walnut, 2 roasted hazelnuts, –>blend + add some white chocolate chips
1st Layer: soaked almonds, soaked cashews, lemon juice (taste how much is needed!), water, hazelnut syrup, coconut oil –>blend all and take 2/3 of the mixture and spread on the crust.
2nd Layer: take 1/3 of the mixture above, add cocoa powder and plum jam (it’s homemade and the only one which was opened; I didn’t want to open the strawberry jam) –> blend and spread on the 1st layer.
Topping: chocolate chips, cacao nibs,….
Put into fridge and look forward to eating (and sharing) it afterwards.
I’m going to share the cake with a friend of mine who also occassionally peeps to my blog.
What’s your favourite cake flavour?
Mine is chocolate, hazelnut, coconut, walnut or alike.
