Cookin’ Time! Raw Chocolate Cake/Tart

Don’t be intimidate by it’s name, we hear this is one tasty treat! It’s pretty easy to make too. One of our mamas is still kicking ass and taking names on a raw food diet (erm… something I failed to maintain 100% myself sigh) and share this birthday treat recipe with us.

This is the cake my bosses wife made for my birthday. The “regular eaters” loved it’s chocolate-y ness just as much.
