Method

  • Prepare your tart dish or even better, a loose bottom cake tin by lining the bottom with either cling film, parchment paper or a sprinkling of desiccated coconut. This is so that the cake doesn't stick.
  • Prepare your base mix by putting the almonds, hazelnuts, brazil nuts, dates, coconut and cacao nibs into a food processor. Process until crumbly. Check that the crust holds together when pressed between two fingers; if not, process a little longer until it does.
  • When you are satisfied with the base, transfer it to your cake tin, pat it down into a uniform layer using your fingers or a flat wooden spoon.
  • Place the crust in the fridge to set while you make the chocolate mousse.
  • Put the cashews, raw cacao powder, cacao butter, coconut nectar, vanilla seeds and dates along with their soaking water into your blender and blend until perfectly smooth. Taste test and adjust with extra cacao powder or extra coconut nectar as per your taste.
  • Take the base out of the fridge, distribute half of the raspberries over it, then cover them with the chocolate mousse. Level the surface and return to the fridge to set for a few more hours.
  • When ready to serve, decorate the torte with the remaining raspberries, desiccated coconut and free-dried raspberries. Serve as is, or with a drizzle of raspberry and passion fruit coulis and a few halved fresh raspberries.
  • Keeps well for a few days in the fridge, or for several weeks in the freezer. If freezing, I like to cut the torte in slices beforehand, so I can just defrost a slice as and when. Enjoy.
