Raw Chocolate Avocado Cake with Vanilla Bean Maple Cashew Cream

 A few years back I went on a retreat and was first introduced to chocolate avocado cake 😋

The chef was kind enough to share the recipe with us when we left 🙏🏻

I’ve adapted it slightly over time.

Here’s my favourite raw version of the cake with vanilla bean, maple cashew cream 💞

Perfect for Friday’s 🍰, chocolate cravings and afternoon tea 💝
