When I was little, my mom baked us a cake almost every single Saturday.
It was a highlight of our weekend. I loved that sweet smell of vanilla or chocolate that always filled the house. I’m not much of a baker myself, as I tell you time and time again, and it’s probably because most of my favorite childhood dessert recipes contain a lot of ingredients that I don’t reach for anymore- like eggs or cream. This is why lately I started experimenting a little with raw desserts- maybe I can even start my own tradition of making a cake, every weekend?
Raw desserts are a perfect addition to my plant-based diet, as they are easy to make, contain only unprocessed ingredients and… they don’t require an oven (and as you know, the only snack/dessert foods I like to bake are my banana breakfast bars and banana bread).
You saw me make this cake on Snapchat (@Paula13t) and I promised to share the recipe, if it happens to work out and as you can see- it did (yay!). It actually came out much better than I thought it would; it’s smooth, creamy with a sweet and nutty crust and topped off with a rich layer of chocolate.
Let me know if you’re going to give this raw cake a go!
