Raw Vegan Tiramisu Cake
- 1 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
- 1 cup Madjool dates
- 4 tablespoons cold coffee ( I used www.foursigmatic.com instant coffee )
- 2 cups almond meal
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 cup Madjool dates
- 1 package dry www.foursigmatic.com instant coffee
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons cacao powder
- 4 cups cashews, pre-soaked for about 1-2 hours ( use 3 cups dry cashews to get 4 cups after soaking)
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil ( melted )
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 1/2 cups coconut cream
- raw cacao powder
- edible flowers
- To make the crust, blend the walnuts into flour in a high speed blender or food processor. Add dates and coffee and blend well. Press evenly into the bottom of baking pan lined with parchment paper. You can choose whatever size you like. Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
- To make the ladyfingers, blend all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Form a cookie layer in the pan and put into freezer for about 30 minutes.
- To make the cream, blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and thick, adding water as needed. Soaking the cashews allows you to blend them for more creamy texture. Spread this mixture onto your crust, make sure is nice and smooth on the top. Use a small fine mesh strainer and put some raw cacao powder in it, to sprinkle evenly across the top of the tiramisu.
- Set in the freezer for 6-8 hours to harden.
- Take it out of the freezer for about 30 minutes before serving. Decorate with edible flowers.
- Cut into slices and serve.
- If you want you can layer the cake with more layers depending on the dish you are using. Simply divide the 3 layers into smaller portions and create 4, 5, 0r even 6 layers. You can also add 2-3 tablespoons of oat flour for the crust layer, it adds the cookie flavor, but remember then your cake won’t be 100% gluten free.
