Recipe Directions

CRUST

1. After grinding the nuts and oats, blend the crust ingredients until they form a nice sticky consistency.

2. Push it into a pie dish lined with clingfilm (saran wrap), just in case it didn't come out!

MOUSSE

3. In the food processor, blend all the main ingredients and again adjust to your taste. Process for quite a while if you want it smooth. I kept resting the machine then going again.

4. Pour over the crust and level it out.

CHOCOLATE LAYER TOPPING

5. Melt the last bit of cacao butter, mix in the semi-ground nibs, and powder, and pour over the cake. Spread out so it covers it evenly.

6. Let harden in the freezer.

Clr-1976's Thoughts

By clr-1976

It was my birthday last week and I really wanted to make a raw cake.

So after lots of trawling through recipes, I thought I’d make one up! Looks like lots but really easy!

As with a lot of recipes, this is mainly estimated and I would advise you to taste it as you go along. Believe me, I did.:0)

You might decide to add the different powders or leave them out. I’m sure it’ll be lovely either way but I like them!

30 minutes later (as long as I could wait), Mmmm, very much a mousse like torte rather than a cake, but yum yum yummy.

It was still a little squidgy in the pic so is back in the fridge now.

I used the oat groats dry as they made a good flour, all the other ingredients Kendra were from whole foods, they all have brilliant nutritional value and taste good too. lacuma tastes caramelly and mesquite a little similar but a bit more like honeycomb. Purple corn doesnt taste much but is higher in anti-oxidants than blueberries!

I think the Cacao butter would really make a difference if not in there as it gives flavour and texture as it hardens.

I'll list the links so you can check them if you want to know more.. As I said I got them at whole foods but the brand they stock is 'detox your world'

Even my boyfriend who hardly EVER tries my raw stuff likes it!

When I make it again I'll use a spring tin as it was really hard to get out!!

speaking of the lacuma powder, mesquite meal, and purple corn extract...do THEY give the torte a certain flavor or texture or are they just for added nutritional value?

Oh man does that look good! THAT'S going in my recipe box to try for later! Where do I buy lacuma, purplecorn extract, and mesquite meal? I've never heard of them. How about ccao buter? ...I assume that's totally different from coconut oil. ..not familiar with that either. Do these ingrediets give the torte a certain flavor or texture or are they just for added nutritional value?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
