  • spring shape of 24 cm diameter
  • hand mixer + associated chopping grinder
  • a food processor comes in handy, but not necessarily
  • baking sheet



  • 400 grams dates
  • 200 grams walnuts
  • 130 grams raw cocoa chips
  • 1 tsp vanilla suger
  • 1 pinch sea salt


  • 225 grams coconut rasp slightly thickened
  • 250 grams cocoa powder
  • 250 grams cocoa butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp cherries (stoned)
  • 200 ml maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanillia powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • coconut rind according to the feeling for the topping


  • Some ingredients are a bit more difficult to get in regular supermarkets. For example, for the cocoa butter and the raw cocoa chips, go to an organic shop.
  • When you have everything together, you are ready to start! Get your hand mixer and the accompanying chopper. That's the bowl where you can put your hand mixer on. Put the walnuts and dates together here, Not everything at once, that doesn't fit. Or if you have a good blender or kitchen machine, that will work too
  • Add the raw cocoa, vanilla powder and sea salt. Make sure -because you can't put the dates and walnuts in the mincer at the same time- that you distribute all the ingredients well.
  • Collect the mixture of dates, walnuts, raw cocoa, vanilla powder and sea salt in a large bowl. Knead the dough for a few more minutes. It's a bit sticky, don't worry. That's right.
  • Put a baking sheet in your springform and divide the nut dough. Flatten it considerably.
  • Feel the ingredients for the filling in the food processor until it becomes slightly creamy.
  • Remove the mixture from the food processor's bowl and spread it over the nut base.
  • Put the coconut zest on top of your chocolate cake. You can also do other fun toppings. Be creative!
  • Put your chocolate cake in the fridge for an hour and then, enjoy!


Tip: the cake is quite heavy on the stomach so better not make the slices to big. And nice side effect, your cake will last longer...although I doubt it ;-).
