If you are going to make any cake in this book, this is the one to start with! If you want to make this a raw cake simply top with a raw chocolate.

Makes 24 cm (9 inch) springform tart 

20-30 mins 

 

Base layer 

150g raw walnut

150g raw almonds

100g pitted dates

1 ½ tablespoons vanilla essence 

2 tablespoons coconut oil

 

Caramel layer 

300g pitted dates

150g almond or cashew or peanut butter

10-12 tablespoons water

10 tablespoons coconut oil

1 large pinch of salt (add more if you like it)

 

Chocolate layer

300g dark chocolate 

 

Base layer:

In a food processor blend the walnuts and almonds first into a flour like consistency - then add the dates, vanilla essence and the coconut oil, and blend until you reach a breadcrumb like texture.

 

Line a spring form tin ideally 8 or 9 inches or else a tart dish with baking parchment (to make it easy to remove), compact the base layer really firmly into the base of the spring form tart, ensuring an even spread.

 

Caramel layer:

In the same food processor add all ingredients for the caramel layer and blend until super smooth and caramel-like, this may take from 5 to 10 mins and you may need to add a little more water if it is a bit clumpy and not blending! *Also top tip if your dates are hard just soak them in boiling water for 10 mins and drain them and use them to make an easier to blend caramel.

Once ready, spread a really even layer of caramel on top of the base layer, doing your best to give a smooth top for the chocolate layer 

 

Chocolate layer:

Melt the chocolate by making a ban-marie and spread evenly over the caramel doing your best to ensure an even spread. Leave to set in the fridge for at least half 1 hr until the chocolate is solid.

 

Use a hot knife to cut this cake in order to be able to cut through the chocolate without it cracking.
