Classic Chocolate Cake

Chocolate, nut & date cake

Serves 6-8

500 g / 2,5 cup fresh soft medjool-like dates, pitted
250 g / 2 cups raw almonds or hazelnuts
1 block / 100 g 80% dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
6 organic eggs
1 organic orange, juice and zest
1 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla
3 tbsp cacao powder
4 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil, melted
1 handful fresh berries or thawed frozen

Preheat the oven to 340F/175°C. Place almonds in a food processor and pulse until you have a fine textured flour. Then add the dates and mix until well combined. Remove the knife blades and transfer the dough to a large mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients an stir with a large spoon to combine. Pour the batter in a greased 8-inch / 20 cm non-stick springform pan and bake for 40-50 minutes. Let the cake cool slightly before removing the springform pan. Serve with berries.Tip: If you do not have a high speed blender, place your pitted dates on a plate and mash with a fork until they are sticky and smooth as caramel, it’ll take a few minutes. Then add the remaining ingredients one by one and kneed it by hand until well combined.
