Chocolate Cake #2


I made another chocolate cake! This one is from the ebook Raw on $10 a Day (or Less!). I prefer this one to Ani Phyo's cake because it tasted more like a cooked chocolate cake. I plan to contact Lisa to see if can share the whole recipe with you.

The batter consists of soaked dates, buckwheat groats, ground flax, banana, salt, vanilla, olive oil, agave, and cacao powder. The batter smelled and looked like chocolate cake batter.


The frosting is the same one I used from Ani Phyo's dessert book because it rocked: Medjool dates, agave, avocado, cocoa powder, and sea salt.

It's a five layer cake. Mine doesn't look exactly like Lisa's picture in her book. My cake layers were flatter than hers. But it was worthy of making a second time, and sharing with other people :-). Tasty stuff, good for breakfast, lunch, or dinner :-).

I'm about to make an easy Strawberry Fruit Cobbler from Sweet Gratitude now!

Love,
Althea

that looks amazing. I used to make a similar one based on a Kate Magic recipe. It used sprouted wheat berried and buckwheat, with dates, cacao powder, I added orange juice and dehydrated the batter and used icing like yours. Then I usually studded it with raspberries, oooh so decadent :)
