I made this cake for the public viewing my friends and I held last year, of Speciesism: The Movie. We had a fantastic turn out, perhaps between 50-60 people, with a few passersby also stopping to watch. The event was also a vegan potluck, with lots of people contributing.
7 medjool dates
3 medjool dates soaked in water overnight
2 cups of brazil nuts soaked in water overnight
Combine the ingredients in a food processor and blend them together. I prefer a little chunkiness to my mix, but you can keep going until it becomes smoother if you like. Spread this mixture over the bottom of a cake tin. (the kind with sides that spring open when you are ready to release the cake!)
3 peeled bananas
2 cups of walnuts soaked overnight
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 vanilla pod
1/4 cup of coconut oil
Add all of the ingredients (except for two of the bananas) to a food processor and blend until relatively smooth. Spoon half of this mix onto the previously prepared base. Then cut one of the bananas up and press the pieces into this layer. When down, add the rest of the mix. Smooth the surface and cut up the third banana, pressing it into the surface. Add a few pieces of walnut to complete the decoration, then put in the freezer to set overnight and eat the next day.
