Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake



I feel like I am the last raw food blogger on earth to try Ani Phyo's famous Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake! Really, I don't know what took me so long:)

It is featured on page 49 of Ani's Raw Food Desserts book. If you love fast, easy, and delicious desserts, I highly recommend this book:) You can find it through her website.

Check out my first taste of Ani's recipes here.

I loved Ani's mango tart-lets, as well!

A quick Google search found the recipe online.

I was very impressed with this recipe! It has very few ingredients, and comes together in a flash!

The rich cake is made from walnuts, cacao powder, dates and salt. The creamy ganache is a blend of dates, agave, avocado, and cacao powder. The raspberry filling is simply raspberries:) I was lazy and made the frosting first, and didn't wash the processor in between...shhh, don't tell;)

I shaped it by packing it in a 5 inch spring-form pan. It is such a cute cake! I think you could easily make cupcakes with it too:)


Thanks to raw Chef Ani Phyo for this yummy recipe:)

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by:)

Hi Monica!...don't wait as long as I did...lol!

~Joanna...I remember your wonderful post about this cake:)

Hi Iris:) I had to laugh when I thought "It looks just like a real cake!"

~Fayinagirl...thanks, but can you believe I am the only one who eats anything raw around here!!! I usually cut and freeze cakes like this since they are just for me:)

drooling!

the last blogger...you're so funny.

i did make cupcakes with it. not the whole pie. so i might be the last blogger to make the cake. i can't find raspberries this time of year though at a reasonable price that are organic.

Hey Evergreen,

I made this cake for Christmas and it was so delicious and my non-raw hubby devoured it. I even made it without the berries and it was great. Although,Your cake looks better than my blob did haha!

evergreen said...

Hi Melissa!... Those last two bites you posted of this cake convinced me to make it!!!

I am hoping you see this reply and contact me. I have been enjoying your wonderful blog, but am unable to leave a comment. I can elaborate if you mail me, as I don't see any way to get in touch with you:)

I made this cake twice everyone loved it. Beautiful photo!

looks yummy. how did you make the round rings on the cake?

evergreen said...

Hi there!

The rings on the cake were made using an icing comb.

Mine is triangular, with 3 different sides (for different effects) and made of metal.

You can make a simple, disposable comb by cutting a 6" piece of clean cardboard with pinking shears.

Simply drag it around the top and sides of the frosted cake to make the rings:)

Hope that helps, and thanks for stopping by!
