[food] day 88: raw[ish] chocolate cake

So I took this reciepe from This Rawsome Vegan Life and adapted it a little to make the mixture work for my liking.

Pressing the cake into the molds. Using my fingers or the back of a small spoon.

Raw [ish] Molten Chocolate Cake:

Cake:
1/3 cup each of raw oats, walnuts, dates, and raisins
1/4 cup cacao powder, natural peanut butter 
 [I measured everything with my eye since the measuring cups went missing]
Molten lava middle:
1/3 cup each of melted coconut oil, maple syrup, dates, and cacao powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence, salt 
Soy Milk, as needed 
The molten middle in the molds. Ready for a lid.

I processed the cake part in a food processer. I added the peanut butter to the recipe to make sure that it wasn’t so crumbly and that I could press it into the muffin molds. It should start coming together, check with your finger tips and pinch the cake to see if it sticks together. If you want it to stick more, just add more dates or peanut butter.
Press it into the mold to make a cup.
Press a lid on some baking paper, making it big enough to cover the cup.
Be sure to have enough left over cake to make the lids of the cups about 1/4 of the cake mixture. Put it all in the fridge to set. 1 hour or so.
The process of fitting the lids onto the cups. The yellow cup in the back was my measuring cup.

The middle of the cake. Process everything in the food processor until nice and creamy, silky, smooth. Once you the consistency that you like, fill the cakes up and top the cups with the lid of the cake. Pinch the sides to make sure that they are attached.
If you want it to be molten cakes, serve reasonably soon after you put the lids on, at least that day.
I put mine back in the fridge so the molten part solidified again. So it was more like a fudge inside.
Finished product. It was perfect crunch, smooth, chocolatey bite of cake. Excellent with fruit.

I served mine with some fruit to cut the sweetness of the cake, banana, apples and blueberries.
Overall I got rave reviews on the cake. It seemed to be the hit of the RAW food feast!
cheers and happy rawing.
