Perfect Raw Chocolate Cake (super easy)

This,  is exactly what I want out of raw food.

When I eat it, my stomach is light, it digests perfectly and there is no sugar rush. It is rich, spongey and nostalgic.

It tastes exactly like the kind of cake I’m  not allowed. You must try it. It’s so quick to make!

You can see I’m very proud of this one. Blissful gratitude in the form of monetary donations will be warmly accepted.

Cake:

3 dates, pre-soaked in water
1/2 banana
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
Dash of vanilla
1 & 1/2 cup ground almonds or almond meal

Ice cream topping:

Frozen bananas
Vanilla
Raisins
Water

Chocolate sauce topping:

1 date, soaked in water
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon nut butter
Sprinkling cocoa powder
Vanilla

Top with:

Crushed walnuts

Mash dates into a syrup*, mix with banana, sprinkle in cocoa, vanilla and then mix in the almond meal until you form a cakey texture. Press into molds and put in the fridge. While that refrigerates, mash up the other soaked date into a paste, add coconut oil, nut butter, cocoa powder and vanilla – whip into chocolate sauce. Those two aspects will keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Then when ready to assemble place chopped frozen banana in the food processor, with a little vanilla and a little water to aid blending. When consistency is similar to soft-serve icecream, throw in a few raisins. Assemble by dropping icecream onto the cake, topping with chocolate sauce and crushed walnuts. Serve immediately.

*I prefer to soak dates overnight as they are very firm. Just have enough water to cover the dates entirely. Soaking allows them to be stirred into the water and become syruppy. ♥
