Vegan Fudgy Raw Cake with Strawberry Frosting

I have no words for this cake. I can only swear improper words due to the fact that strawberry season is over.

The raw cake is scrumptious and this frosting is absolutely out of this world.


3 cups walnuts or pecans
1 heaping cup of dates, pitted and softened in warm water
⅔ cup raw cacao powder
¼ tsp Hymalaian salt or sea salt
¼ cup coconut oil
1-2 TBS date/maple syrup

Process first the walnuts, then add dates. Process until it forms a sticky dough (don't overheat your processor, do it slowly, scraping the sides all the time). Pour into a big bowl and add the remaining ingredients. Work on the mix with your hands (use gloves if you like) until you get a uniform dough.

Press half the cake mix into the bottom of an adjustable spring-form pan. Let it set in the fridge for at least 2 hours before adding the frosting.


My sub in the frosting: a mix of Xylitol + Erytritol for the powdered sugar (which I never use in my recipes). That's why it was runnier than the original. I suggest reducing a bit the amount of strawberries if not sticking to the original sugar.
