Recipe Directions

The ingredients repeat itself above because there is the crust and the filling. The crust ingredients are the first five ending with 1/4 tsp. sea salt and the filling begins with .05 ounce of Bittersweet Organic Chocolate (I couldn’t find this so I just used Organic Chocolate).

My notes: It was hard for me to find a nice young coconut which has jelly/soft meat so I just used the older coconut and blended it really well (as creamy as I could get it), adding some coconut water to moisten it. I added the note for the Grade B maple syrup, the young coconut meat, and the indication of Cacao vs. Cocoa (same thing really); the original recipe didn’t not specify that. As I thought later the dryer meat may work well to because it would make for a dryer cake; I’ll try it another time.

The consistency of this cake after being frozen, let to set just a little (not to be icy but firm) was firm like a cheesecake (uncooked recipe). I also found that it was too sweet for me. I would like a more robust chocolate flavor. I’m a serious chocolate lover.

Of course, try it and play with it to your special taste. When I tasted the batter, my eyes rolled in my head; I was in Heaven!!!! So delish! I used my fingers to get all the batter out and then when I did that I went back for a second scraping with my finger to lick the rest.

Here are the instructions:

For the crust:

In a food processor, grind the almonds and cocoa powder together until fine. Do not over-process. Then add in the sea salt, vanilla, coconut butter and agave and pulse a few times. Press into bottom of 7? Springform Pan. Set in the freezer.

(MY NOTE: AFTER PROCESSING THE NUTS AND THE GRINDING THE CACAO, I PUT THE DRY INGREDIENTS IN A BOWL AND MIXED EVERYTHING TOGETHER WITH A FIRM SPATULA….I SPREAD IN THE BOTTOM OF A BUNDT CAKE PAN AS I DIDN’T HAVE A SPRINGFORM PAN (PUT IN FREEZER AS INSTRUCTED)...MY BUNDT PAN HAS THE REMOVABLE INSIDE SO WHEN IT WAS STILL FIRM BUT SOFT ENOUGH, I WAS ABLE TO EASILY PULL THIS OUT TO REVEAL THE CAKE)

ALSO BECAUSE I WANTED A THICKER CRUST, I INCLUDED AN ADDITIONAL AMOUNT OF EACH INGREDIENT EXCEPT THE AGAVE NECTAR.

For the Filling:

Melt the chocolate and add everything to a high speed blender until smooth. Pour into pan and set in the fridge or freezer until firm

MY NOTE: AS THERE WAS NOTHING FOR ME TO MELT, I JUST ADDED THE POWDER AND BLENDED REALLY WELL….THERE WAS NO GRITTINESS FROM THE POWDER. AT ANOTHER TIME IN MAKING A RAW CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE/SAUCE I MELTED THE MIXTURE BY PUTTING IT IN A SMALL CONTAINER AND PLACING THAT CONTAINER IN A BOWL/CUP OF HOT WATER (BOILED AND THEN COOLED JUST A LITTLE). THIS TAKES A LITTLE PATIENCE SINCE I DIDN’T WANT TO HAVE THE NUTRIENTS REMOVED FROM OVERHEATING (WATER TOO HOT) SO I WAS TENTATIVE AND CAUTIOUS. IT CAME OUT WELL IN THE END.

We had with fresh strawberries…..really nice addition. I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE

I recently made this for 30 people, and everyone just loved it!!!

I couldn't find young coconut, so I used Organic Grated coconut and ground it quite fine... The results were FANTASTIC! Everyone not only wanted seconds, but now I have quite the list of cakes to make.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Thanks for the recipe! I did this on Friday night, but halved the quantities for everything as there was only 2 of us in the house (but half of it is gone now!). It was really nice, although the crust ended up being too salty! So next time i'll put half of the salt it calls for.

I didn't have chocolate bars to melt so I melted a raw chocolate spread from Raw Intent. I did wonder about the validity of the 0.05 oz though! So I just used as much as I wanted until it tasted right. I also put some cacao nibs in the mixture.

Also, I think I will put less coconut meat in next time cos it ended up overpowering the chocolate a bit. Unless, of course I call it as chococonut pie then it wouldn't be a problem!

Overall it was great, so thanks for sharing :)

Oh yeah, this recipe here is wrong as well on the chocolate. It is 5oz of chocolate not 0.05oz of chocolate. No wonder you wanted to add more chocolate to it. 0.05oz would not be enough chocolate for me either. The bitterness of it does balance out the amount of sweeteners in it when you use the full 5oz of bittersweet chocolate.

Here is the link to this recipe:

http://gliving.tv/greenchefs/recipes/rich-chocolate-dream-cake/

It is one of my recipes on GreenChefs - you can find many more like it at http://www.greenchefs.tv

As for the coconut butter in it - it is coconut oil, not coconut concentrate. It is the pure virgin de coco creme brand - no fiber in it. It works the best to firm up the cake, I wouldn't use the coconut concentrate in it. Although the 5oz chocolate bar does have cocoa butter in it that firms it up as well. I used Green and Blacks which is not a raw brand, but their are raw brands of chocolate bars out there now you can use. Or you can mix cacao powder with cacao butter as an alternative....

Also, has anyone tried making this with virgin coconut oil instead of coconut butter? Because I couldn't find the butter at our health food store...

Hi, I'm just wondering what the measurement is for the cocoa in the crust? Is the 1/4 of cocoa supposed to be for the crust and not in the filling, or is there cocoa in both the crust and filling? Thanks!

I made this tonight.

I made 2 batches. One without the coconut meat, and one with. I hated the one using coconut meat, it made the cake watery and the coconut flavor was overwhelming, I could barely taste the chocolate .

the one WITHOUT was perfect. and solid. I also ommited the vanilla since all of this coconut is overwhelming enough.

This is absolutely amazing!! The only other time I have tasted anything close to this amazing is the chocolate pie/cake at Pure Food & Wine in NYC… If you LOVE chocolate, you MUST try this! (I used honey instead of maple syrup - awesome!)

FYI - There is an ingredient missing from the crust, which is 1/4C Cacao Powder - or cocoa powder - I used raw cacao.

I just made this pie...twice. It is probably the best thing I've ever eaten. My housemates (19 of them) think so too. They want to pay me to make them this pie! Also I get a serious cacao high after I eat it, and have to go on a bike ride or something, and I love it.
