Basil Flavored Triple Chocolate Raw Cake

Rarely, I would prepare twice one and the same dish. That’s what happened this time. I was asked for the purple raw cake but inspired by the fresh green basil leaves grown on my Mom’s kitchen window at the end we got a brand new chocolate cake with a basil flavored layer.

 

 

Necessary Ingredients

 

Preparation time: 1 hour

Serves: 10-12 

 

Process the walnuts, 2 table spoons of cacao powder, chopped dates and 2-3 table spoons from the thick part of coconut milk in a food processor. If it stays too dry add some more coconut milk.

In a serving plate put the ring of a cake form and form a layer from the walnut mixture.

Prepare the cashew layer by processing the cashew with 2 spoons of cacao powder, honey and basil.

Distribute over the walnut layer.

At the end process bananas with the tahini and the remaining 2 table spoons of cacao powder.

Finish by distributing the last layer.

 

 

Leave in the fridge for one night. Serve on the next day decorated with fresh basil leaves.

 

Enjoy,
