Raw Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cake [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
This is seriously one of the best recipes I've ever made. It only survived a couple days due to its irresistible deliciousness. Having said that, it tastes better the second and third days, so try to be patient. Make it today, tomorrow, for Christmas, a birthday party, whatever. You don't really need a reason. It's that good.

Lemme giva ya the rundown. You've got a dense, dark chocolate pecan cake base topped off with a sweet, creamy, spiced caramel sauce and covered in pecans: can you go wrong here? No. Serve this over the holidays to your loved ones and I guarantee they will all be shocked when you tell them it is raw, vegan, gluten-free, and super healthy. Praise pecans!

Raw Vegan Chocolate Caramel Pecan Cake

This Recipe is :

Raw VeganVegan

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!

The only thing that could go wrong is that everyone else will scarf it down before you can get to it.
