Easy & Delicious Raw Cake

During my Finnish summer adventure I got to try a delicious blueberry-coconut raw cake made by a good friend, and after having another raw cake the other week I finally decided to give it a go myself. It’s also the perfect choice for me as I don’t eat egg at the moment – plus it’s nice to be able to indulge after dinner without the guilt 🙂

I googled “easy raw cake recipe” and was astounded by the amount of mouthwatering recipes out there! I finally decided to go for this recipe as the ingredients were pretty straight forward and it looked amazing of course!

Instructions:

  1. Place all crust ingredients apart from the chocolate chips into your food processor and process until dough-like.
  2. Add a few tablespoons of water if your dough is too dry (I had to add quite a few to get the right consistency).
  3. Remove dough from food processor and fold in chocolate chips by hand (I guess you could leave the chips out if you want to make it healthier or vegan).
  4. Spray your 8×8 inch glass dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Press dough evenly into dish.
  6. Place all ganache ingredients into the food processor and blend until smooth.
  7. Place ganache evenly on top of the cookie dough.
  8. Cover the dish and place in the freezer for 3 hours.

Ready to eat!

This recipe makes 12 good sized squares – although I found that a smaller piece was enough for a post dinner treat as it is quite rich. I kept the cake in the fridge for 5 days, with no decrease in flavour or consistency.

Yes, I did buy flowers just so I could dress up the cake a little bit haha! I thought a splash of colour would make it look even more appealing 🙂

This bouquet was just £3! I didn’t know you could get pretty flowers like this for that cheap – will definitely be investing in flowers more often from now on. They still look fresh after a week as well!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I absolutely love non bake treats like this. I am a big fan of choc and nuts too, so you win on all counts with this recipe.
