Strawberry/Coconut/Carob Fudge Cake

So, I made another cake!!! YUM!!!! IT was so so so so so good. 5 RAWS. A MILLIZONZILION RAWS!!! I love love love love love this cake. Ok, so, I used Ani Phyo's chocolate cake recipe and added a middle layer of strawberries and coconut.

The inside "cake" part is made with walnuts, carob powder, and about a cup of dates (I soaked them to make them stick together better). The dates give everything the soft, moist taste. It looks like this:

I mashed it together to make two circles for layers, then put the strawberry/coconut layer in with some icing. Oh, the icing is made out of avocados, a few more dates, agave syrup, and MORE CAROB! Mmm chocolatey.

The first time I made this cake, I did a horrible job at getting the "batter" to stick together. For some reason, the cake crumbled everywhere! That's why I added a tad bit of water to the mix this time. It worked like a dream. Like a DREAM I tell you!

Yeah, look at it. Its....incredibly tasty. Ani Phyo might be a genius -- this cake is so easy and it took me about 20 or 25 minutes to COMPLETELY make it. She has a few more books out and it looks like I might just HAVE to buy them! 

By the way, Andrew and I cooked a couple times this week and can I just tell you the cleanup is AWFUL!? I thought cleaning out my food processor sucked when I made something with olive oil, but I totally forgot how annoying it is to clean pans! Anyway, we have GREAT pans from my in-laws, so its nice to use them here and there! 

But seriously, this CAKE!!!! YUMMMM!!! It was the "treat" I picked for the week. Next week I'm looking at making a raw blueberry cream pie, which sounds DELICIOUS. I just can't stop thinking about it, even though its not chocolate. We'll see!
