{raw} mini triple chocolate cream cake recipe

by purelytwins

hello luvs!

finally Friday! we have some special visitors coming to visit us this weekend!

to get the weekend started off right we are sharing another favorite raw dessert of ours. a dessert we already practiced and shared with friends. just cannot get enough of it.

and this dessert we plan on making for Lori’s dessert bar at her wedding!

{raw} mini triple chocolate cream cake recipe. very chocolately, smooth and delectable with every bite! Naturally gluten and grain-free. Paleo. This chocolate cream cake is loved by everyone!

when thinking of a special Valentine’s Day recipe this chocolate dessert recipe came to our mind.

we wanted something chocolate…very chocolately. something smooth and delectable with every bite.

raw triple chocolate cream cake ( raw cheesecake if you will)

more chocolate the better right? we agree.

we call it a cream cake instead of cheesecake. we like to give it a different name since it is technically not like a traditional cheesecake. but feel free to call it a cheesecake.

the crust is made up of pecan flour. we just took whole pecans and place them into food processor (blender would work too) and pulsed till we had a flour like texture. again you can use any nut of your liking but pecans are fatter so they provide a nice buttery like crust.

for the filling part cashews work the best. as they get very smooth and creamy. to make the filling is best done in a high powered blender like a Vita-mix. you want to make sure all the cashews are well blended. no one wants chunky cheesecake. or maybe some do. either way the blender does best.

now we are warning you when you make this filling it is very hard not to eat it all with a spoon. we struggled with this part. it is just too damn good not to eat along the way.

even though this triple chocolate cream cake is free of many common allergies promise it is just as satisfying and mouthwatering as any other cheesecake recipe out there

{raw} mini triple chocolate cream cake recipe

A rich dairy-free raw vegan chocolate cheesecake that will melt in your mouth! Naturally gluten and grain-free. Paleo. This chocolate cream cake is loved by everyone!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 12 mini cheesecakes or one large 8 or 9 inch cake 1x
Scale

Ingredients

pecan chocolate crust:

  • 1 cup pecan meal (just ground up pecans, can use any nut meal of liking)
  • 34 medjool dates (or 23 tbsp maple syrup)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder (cocoa powder)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

chocolate filling:

  • 2 cups cashew, pieces
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, liquid
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup ( or honey or coconut nectar)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3/4 cup raw cacao powder (or cocoa powder)

Chocolate sauce

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (liquid)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp maple (or stevia)
  • 5 tbsp cocoa powder

Instructions

crust directions:

  1. place all ingredients into a food processor (can do in a blender) and pulse till combined. you want the crust to slightly stick together.
  2. grab your mini cheesecake pan and scoop your pecan chocolate crust into your pan. press down with fingers to firmly place the crust into pan.
  3. set aside as you make your filling.

filling directions:

  1. soak cashews (or macadamia nuts) for about 10- 15 minutes (optional) then rinse well. place cashews into blender with maple syrup, vanilla, and water. blend for a little bit to get it creamy.
  2. next add in your cacao powder and coconut oil. blend till creamy. you may have to scrape down the sides a few times. just keep blending till it is nice and smooth.
  3. **we like our chocolate cream cake on the rich chocolate not too sweet side, you may add in a little bit more sweetness if desired
  4. once chocolate filling is blended begin scooping your filling into your mini cheesecake pans. fill them to the top. set the chocolate cream cakes into your freezer to set for a few hours before removing from pan.

filling directions

  1. place everything into a bowl and stir until well combined. sweeten to taste!
  2. top cheesecakes with chocolate sauce.
  3. pecans add great to add too.

we love making this raw chocolate cream cake as mini cakes because they are the perfect individual serving!

and just so cute…love mini things.

decorate your tasty raw mini triple chocolate cream cake any way you would like.

then devour.

this is a great chocolate cheesecake recipe that will sure impress your friends, family, or your special loved one for valentines day! promise they won’t believe it is raw and actually good for them.

need a sugar-free recipe? we share how to make this recipe with stevia in our purely classic cookbook!

till next time, now who is coming over for some dessert?

xoxo

Reply
Lori and Michelle February 21, 2012 - 7:26 am

Aasya, I am not really sure what to substitute for eggs. As this recipe is made to be unbaked. If you add eggs you will have to bake it. This recipe is really good even for non-vegans. Sorry we will not be able to help with making it with eggs as it is best as is. Sorry.

Can you substitute coconut oil with some other oil? Never used coconut oil for cooking.

Reply
Lori and Michelle March 5, 2012 - 8:40 am

Archana well for raw desserts you are not cooking the oil, which is why coconut oil works the best as it gets solid when cold. So the desserts stays together. The only other option is cacao butter.

Can you substitute anything for the cashews? I read a similar recipe where the author used garbanzo beans, but I don’t know how that would work out for this. Great site by the way! I have 10+ food allergies so your recipes are really helpful!

Reply
Lori and Michelle April 10, 2012 - 10:38 am

Tawsha you can use macadamia nuts or even almonds. not sure about garbanzo beans, but you could give it a try I guess. just cashews help provide the creaminess. if you eat soy, tofu should work too. hope this helps.

I hope this isn’t one of those “stupid questions”, but approximately how many whole pecans will it take to make 1 cup of pecan meal?

My family and I always have a raw dessert on Sunday evenings, and this is definitely going to be our next one! They look fantastic. And such *beautiful* photographs!

I found your blog a few weeks ago searching for gluten-free “bakers” in North Carolina. The recipes look tasty, but this one caught my eye and I knew I had to have some. I’ve made it TWICE now. (Well, a half recipe once to see if it was good as it looked.)

I was surprised at how simple it was. And oh so yummy! It was a big hit. This is definitely a keeper.

Malla well coconut oil is not always liquid, it is liquid when at a certain temperature. now with the hot months it is usually liquid in stores, but could be solid. most health food stores sell it, look out for sales. also amazon online has good deals.

After a couple hours in the freezer the entire thing slid out easily using the plunger. Triple chocolate heaven.

no cashew pieces are not the same as whole cashews because the pieces are smaller so you are getting more volume. we suggest going by weight.

you can put them out about 30 mins -1 hr. If you house is warm wait until 30 mins, if you place is cool you can do 1 – 1:30 hr. Yes you can put it in the fridge too!

OMG!! Just made these for a birthday party for my girlfriends tomorrow evening. Don’t plan on telling anyone they are vegan but Oh, Gosh! they are so good, no one will know. Hubby is licking the blender clean and my daughter is begging for the leftovers. There was a little more filling than I could use and I used the same pan as you so she is one lucky girl.

My filling is very very thick. Can I add a little water next time to thin it out a little or will that stop it from staying nicely formed? I plan on making these again for July 4th.

I plan on topping with the chocolate and pecans.

Made this a few weeks ago. The filling is so good. I made it again tonight but I added a little extra maple syrup this time because I like a little sweeter.

Question though, I put the assembled cake (crust and filling) in the freezer to harden typically overnight, then remove it the next afternoon to put on the chocolate sauce. However, every time I put the sauce on, the cake itself is so cold the topping freezes up and hardens on contact and before I’m able to evenly spread it or add any pretty decorations (berries, pecan pieces, etc).

Any suggestions on what to do?

Let the cake sit out a bit before pouring the sauce on top. So glad to hear you and everyone likes the recipe!

Hi!

I’ve made these over the last few years and am completely in love with them! I’ve even changed my regular cheesecake recipe to incorporate this crust to rave reviews! I do have a question. I’m starting keto to try to help with a few health issues and wanted to know how you do this without the maple syrup. Thank you!

Can I make these a day or two ahead of time? How long do they keep?

You can make a day, but not more than that.
