The crust for the avocado cake

The crust for this raw cake is made with walnuts, cocoa powder and dark syrup and dried berries to glue it together. You can use nut mix or other nuts such as pecans, peanuts, cashew will be great too. As for the dried berries, I used cranberries and plums. To my mind, you can replace it with dried apricots, mango or raisins too. Just check that you have sticky combination in the end to press in the pan.

The filling for this vegan cake

The main ingredient for this vegan cake is of course avocado. Moreover, I added 1 banana to make it more sweet, avocado and banana go perfectly together. Also I added few tablespoons of golden syrup, because it’s a cake, not just frozen vegetables! You can sweeten it with honey instead of syrup too. And coconut milk gives to this vegan cake pleasant creamy texture. You can also use almond or any other milk that you prefer.

Moreover to make the filling for this vegan cake I used few drops of green coloring, which is totally optional. It gave such a vibrant green color. However, if you are ok with natural creamy lime green color, don’t use the coloring! Or add it slowly, until desired color is reached.

Decorating avocado cake

To my mind, decoration should be in contrast with the filling. It needs brown and red color, so I layered halved walnuts in the center, then I added dried fruits and shredded chocolate. Also loose fruit tea makes great decoration! I have the one that has apples, hibiscus, pieces of papaya, pineapple, rose hip. So I decorated the cake with a spoon of tea too.

By the way, you need to freeze the avocado cake for at least 2 hours before decorating. Let it stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving. Moreover, I recommend to put the knife in the hot water before slicing this raw cake.
