Emma + Carla
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1⁄4 cup raw cacao powder
- 2 tbs. coconut oil
- 1 tbs. rice malt syrup
- 2 cups raw cashews
- (soaked in water for at least an hour)
- 1 cup coconut milk (canned)
- 1⁄2 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbs. raw cacao powder
- 2 tbs. organic instant coffee
- 2 tbs. rice malt syrup
- 1 tsp 100% vanilla
- Line the base of a 20 cm spring form cake tin with baking paper and grease the edges with a little coconut oil.
- In a food processor or blender, place the walnuts, coconut and raw cacao powder. Whiz these ingredients until a fine meal forms.
- Add the coconut oil and rice malt syrup to the bowl and whiz till combined.
- Press this in to the cake tin, making sure you press it out evenly, covering the entire base.
- Place in to the freezer.
- Drain and rinse the cashews and place them in to the food processor along with the coconut milk, coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla.
- Whiz until completely smooth, this will take around 5 minutes.
- Pour half of the filling in to a bowl, sift and stir in the raw cacao powder.
- Add the coffee to the other half of the filling and whiz until smooth.
- Take the base out of the freezer and pour the coffee filling on top of the base.
- Pour the chocolate filling over the coffee filling. Carefully swirl the fillings (not too much) and make a pretty pattern.
- Shake the tin to even out the top and place the cake in to the freezer for around 2 hours or until set.
- Take the cake out of the freezer and let sit for 10 minutes.
- Rub the outside of the cake tin with a hot cloth and release the spring form slowly (you may need to run a knife around the edge).
- Cut in to slices with a hot knife and store any left overs in an airtight container in the freezer.
- Merrymaker tip: This cake has a few extra steps than the other recipes but don’t let that fool you, it’s still so simple to make.
