Raw Vegan Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cake

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Raw Vegan Vegan

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder

For the Caramel:

  • 3/4 cup dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon and nutmeg, to taste (I used about 1/2 teaspoon of each)
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • Water, as needed (I used about 1 cup altogether)

For the Topping:

  • Handful pecans
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg

Preparation

  1. To make the cake: put the pecans in your food processor and process until they become small crumbs. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until it all begins to stick together. Press into a small spring form pan (mine was about 6 inches), leaving the sides slightly higher than the center so you can later pour in the caramel. Leave in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.
  2. To make the caramel: blend all the ingredients until smooth, adding water as needed to get a caramel consistency. Pour into the center of your cake and spread to the sides so it drizzles down and looks sexy. Oh, baby. Top off with pecans or other nuts if you wish. Enjoy with spiced nut milk!

This recipe can only be considered raw, if cold pressed Virgin Coconut Oil is used!

💥 Note: Virgin Coconut Oil: Whether it is raw or not depends on the production methods, if virgin coconut oil produced by expeller pressing, centrifuged or made from coconut milk by fermentation at high temperatures it cannot be regarded as raw and not suitable for raw diets. Only cold pressed (under 40⁰C / 104⁰F) virgin coconut oil can be classified as raw.
