Paleo Raw Tiramisu Cake Recipe.

So we kinda used to love coffee. Then we hated it because we realised that it made us shakey and feel weird. Probably because we were drinking like 3-4 shots a day… which, if you’re a coffee drinker, you’ll know that 3-4 shots is kinda a lotta coffee.
 
So we gave coffee the flick and turned our focus to chai. We love chai. BUT we still love coffee. Not in our drinks but in our cakes. Especially THIS cake. It’s paleo tiramisu… tiramisu. And yes, thanks to Macklemore’s Downtown song, whenever we write or say the word tiramisu, tiramisu… we have to say it twice. Because, it’s fun and it makes us smile.

The part where he sings tiramisu, tiramisu is actually kind of rude and innappropriate for merrymaker speak… so we changed it to:
 
There’s layers to this cake player, tiramisu, tiramisu
 
Ah much better! If it were up to us we’d even go one step further and add a paleo tiramisu, tiramisu in there.
 

We should send a piece of this cake to Macklemore… he would probably like that. We really love his music. One day we even put ‘learn lyrics to downtown’ on our to-do list. True story! Other songs we’ve done that with: Taylor Swift’s Blank Space and Roxette’s It Must Have Been Love.

2 things we LOVE about this recipe (there’s probably a whole lot more), 1: it’s delicious. It’s crowd pleasing yum. Even Merrymaker Dad approves, which you know his tick of approval is a pretty big deal around here and 2: it looks hard with all those layers (to this cake player) but it’s actually really really ridiculously easy. 
 
Boom! What’s not to go cake crazy for?
 
What are you waiting for? Whack this paleo tiramisu, tiramisu on to your to make list and go to tiramisu, tiramisu heaven! Hooray!

    1. I’m trying to decide whether to make this (or better yet get my sister to haha) or the rainbow cake for my birthday next week. Tough decisions. Think the rainbow one will win this time purely for the fact that we are celebrating in the evening and I’m sensitive to coffee late in the day. In which case I’ll save this to make for a morning tea with the girls. Thanks for sharing. Xx

    2. This looks amazing any suggestion what to replace cashews with for nut free version – would soaked sunflower seeds work

    4. This looks soooo good and not too hard! I’m not a big fan of shredded coconut, can I replace it with something else in the base or just leave it out?? Thanks! 🙂

    5. HI girls, I made this today and it smells divine. Reckon I could take it out with me to a picnic or will it melt? I’m obviously putting it in a cold proof bag with cool packs surrounding it.

        Hey Mel! So happy to hear this! YAY. We reckon if you leave it pretty frozen it should defrost nicely for when you’re ready for dessert. We’d leave it in the cake tin, cover with foil and pop it in the bag with ice packs. Half way through savoury picnic items check the cake, if it’s rock hard maybe let it sit out. Sounds like fun! We’d love to see a picnic photo! xx

        Hi Jane it can be a little gritty, you could brew coffee and add it instead. Just make sure it’s not too much liquid. Add like a super strong mini shot 😛

    6. This looks delicious. Could I swap the cashews for macadamias? Also Naturopath has advised hubby to give up stimulants so out with the coffee in with the chai … but do you think decaf would be ok for the coffee flavour less the stimulants? Otherwise I’ll have to experiment with chaimisu version sans coffee but with plenty of spice 😂

        Oh yes decaf will be fine as it is mainly for the flavour YUM! Totally, macadamias would be the perfect replacement, it is always what we recommend! YAY fun and yum!

    7. Hi, for the chocolate layer it says to add rice malt syrup but this is not in the ingredients list. I added 1 tablespoon.

    8. Hi Girls – just wanting to substitute the ground coffee for a shot of coffee instead – would I do that for both the base and the filling?
