Yummylicious Raw Cacao Cake

Today, I have a delightful treat for you—a tantalizingly rich and decadent recipe for a raw cacao cake that will make your taste buds dance with joy. So, let’s dive into the world of pure indulgence, shall we?


  • 1 cup of dates (pitted and soaked)
  • 1 cup of raw almonds
  • 1 cup of cashews (soaked overnight)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped Cacao
  • 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Fresh berries or edible flowers (for garnish)


  1. Start by draining the soaked cashews and set them aside. We want them to be nice and creamy for our cake!

  2. In a food processor, blend the dates until they form a sticky paste. Then add the almonds and blend until you achieve a coarse texture.

  3. Now, it’s time to unleash the power of Cacao! Add chopped Cacao, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt to the food processor. Blend all the ingredients until they come together beautifully, forming a moist and chocolatey mixture.

  4. Transfer the mixture to a cake pan or silicone mold of your choice, pressing it down firmly to create an even layer. Remember, we’re building a masterpiece here!

  5. Pop the cake pan into the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 2-3 hours (or overnight if you can wait that long). This will allow the cake to set and become even more tantalizing.

  6. Once the cake is firm and ready, take it out of the refrigerator and gently remove it from the pan. It’s time to let your creativity shine! Decorate the cake with fresh berries, edible flowers, or any other toppings that make your heart sing.

  7. Now, my dear friend, it’s the moment we’ve been eagerly waiting for—indulging in a slice of heaven! Grab a fork, take a bite, and let the divine flavors of Cacao and sweet dates dance on your tongue. Feel the creaminess of the cashews and the delicate touch of vanilla. Pure bliss, isn’t it?

Remember, this raw Cacao cake is not only a treat for your taste buds but also a celebration of the incredible nourishment nature provides. Enjoy it guilt-free, knowing that you’re savoring something that’s both delicious and good for you!

I hope this recipe brings a smile to your face and adds a sprinkle of magic to your day. Feel free to share it with your loved ones, as sharing joy and scrumptiousness is what life is all about!
