OK, so quick disclaimer! I have tasted some pretty good raw chocolate cakes but this one... this one is my favourite-to-date and it is from our funki new recipe book which you can purchase HERE!
We discovered this amazing raw vegan coconut milk powder from this awesome company in the UK. They are a small family run business and also sell the couverture chocolate drops which feature in this recipe too. You can get a MAHOOSIVE 1 KG bag of these babies (just cacao paste and coconut sugar!) for a superb price.
So, let's get on with the recipe, shall we? This makes a small but delicious cake so if you want a big huge one for a birthday party then just double, triple or even quadruple the ingredients.
And Kate Bush, if you are reading this by some miracle, this cake is for you!
For the cake you will need:
400g sticky medjool dates, pitted
100g couverture chocolate drops or 100g raw chocolate (melted)
200g cacao powder
3 tbsp raw honey (or maple syrup)
50g coconut milk powder (mix with a little warm water first)
50g cacao butter (melted)
Process all the above ingredients together in a food processor until all is incorporated. Keep scraping the sides if necessary
Spoon the mixture into two small cake moulds and set in the freezer until firm but not frozen
For the buttercream frosting you will need:
50g coconut milk powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp water
1 tsp coconut oil
Mix the above ingredients by hand with a spoon until fully incorporated.
Take the firmed up cakes out of the freezer.
Spread the cream on top of one of the cakes and place the other cake on top to make a sandwich!
For the glossy chocolate topping:
Simply melt 50g couverture chocolate drops (or 50g raw choc) and drizzle over the top. Decorate with more drops.
Keep in the fridge for a gooey cake and in the freezer for a firmer cake.
