Raw Salted Caramel Cake | Paleo

We grabbed your attention didn’t we? Hello! Hello little raw salted caramel cake you should #getinmybelly. Are we right… or are we right?

Really anything with the words salted and caramel in it is guaranteed to be amazing! We’ve already shared our Paleo Salted Caramel Smoothie (drool!) but this baby takes the cake! It might just be the best Raw Salted Caramel Cake ever!

We topped this cake with half a batch of our paleo chocolate (to make it more fancy and more delicious!).

Oh and if this cake doesn’t take your fancy you should probably try this epic blueberry choc one. Or come and try our new white choc raspberry cake… it’s part of our Make Life Merry challenge... and it’s so yum, and so delicious and oh… we should stop now πŸ™‚

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla

Serves 12
Total Time
2 hr
Total Time
2 hr
Stuff you need
    For the base
    1. 1 cup walnuts
    2. 1 cup shredded coconut
    3. 1/2 cup dates, soaked in water for at least 10 mins
    4. 2 tbs. coconut oil
    5. 2 tbs. raw cacao powder
    for the filling
    1. 2 cups cashews, soaked in water overnight
    2. 1 cup coconut milk
    3. 1 cup dates, soaked in water for 10 mins
    4. 1/3 cup coconut oil
    5. 1 tsp. pink himalayan salt
    6. 1 tsp. vanilla powder/extract
    For the toppings
    1. 1/2 a batch of paleo chocolate (link to recipe in blog post!)
    Now what
    1. Line the base of a 20 cm spring form cake tin with baking paper and grease the edges with a little coconut oil.
    2. Start with the base
    3. In a food processor (we use our Vitamix), place the walnuts, coconut and raw cacao powder. Whiz these ingredients until a fine meal forms.
    4. Add the coconut oil and dates and whiz until it becomes a choc butter.
    5. Once it’s all combined, press the base in to the cake tin, making sure you press it out evenly, covering the entire base.
    6. Place in to the freezer.
    7. Now for the filling
    8. Drain and rinse the cashews and place them in to the food processor along with the coconut milk, dates, coconut oil, salt and vanilla.
    9. Whiz until completely smooth, this will take around 5 minutes.
    10. Take the base out of the freezer and pour the filling on top of the base.
    11. Shake the tin to even out the top and place the cake in to the freezer for around 1 1/2 hours or until set.
    12. Take the cake out of the freezer and let sit for 10 minutes.
    13. Meanwhile, time for the topping! You'll need to make a 1/2 batch of paleo chocolate.
    14. 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).
    15. Drizzle with paleo chocolate!
    16. Cut in to slices with a hot knife and store any left overs in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

    1. Looks divine! When you say dates, do you mean medjool dates, or would regular pitted dates do the trick?

    3. Looks tasty!
      But I’m not a fan of cacao or chocolate (I know, it makes me a freak) – can you suggest a substitute?

    5. Looks yummy, but what would you suggest for a base instead of walnuts? (Husband has a weird allergy to them…)

    6. Post
    7. Cashews, cashews, cashews! I see wonderful recipes on your website but many contain cashews, which our family can’t have. Is there a substitute? I have my fingers crossed that there is!

    8. Post

      OH bugger re: the cashews! Are you allergic to other nuts? Macadamias are a great alternate nut to cashews. :):) Let us know how you go! This cake is a winner!

    9. This is absolutely amazing. I made it with medjool dates and omitted the chocolate topping. Divine!

    11. Oh my goodness! This recipe is so delicious! I’ve just had a quick taste of the filling “batter” and it’s ridiculously yum! Just like caramel! I’ve been converted. Can’t wait to share with friends and family! Thanks ladies! You’re awesome! πŸ˜€ xx

    22. Hi girls …. I made this tonight followed to the letter …. My cake is very very blonde , no where near as caramelly as your pic looks : (
      I used medjool dates too.
      Also my texture is very grainy even after soaking my nuts . Any tips ?
      Cheers Lisa

      Hi Lisa! How does it taste though? What kind of blender/processor are you using? To get it silky smooth you really do need a high powered machine! πŸ™‚ e + c

    24. Hi Ladies, by any chance, have you already weighted the dates ?…when you say a cup…100gr maybe..

    28. hello! Does this set ok without any coconut oil?> or do you need to keep it frozen? xx

    29. Post

      Hi Kelly, the coconut oil really is the thing that lets it set properly. We are not sure how it would go using no coconut oil. Let us know if you give it a go. πŸ™‚ xx

    30. what do you do with the liquid that the dates were soaked in? is it added in or drained off?

    31. Post
    32. Hi gals,

      do you soak the nuts in hot or cold water? and if i want to make a test tiny cake and i have no time to soak the nuts, is it going to affect the taste?


    33. Post
    34. I’ve made a cake that set just fine without the oil. Just put a can of coconut milk into the fridge overnight. The next day all you do is scoop out the solid cream and use that. Works like a charm!
