Home Baking: Raw Key Lime Cake

IMG_9716

I found many limes in the fridge a couple of weeks back and decided to try making a raw key lime cake! Using just a few simple ingredients, the cake was ready by dinner time and it tasted just like an ice cream cake. It was yummy and our family and friends loved it:)

Crust

2 1/2 c. almonds (or a mix of almonds and walnuts)
1/8 c. coconut oil
1/3 c. dates, pitted
pinch of salt

Filling

2 avocados
1/2 c. coconut oil
1 c. cashews, soaked overnight
1/2 c. agave nectar
4 limes, zested and juiced
pinch of salt

To make the crust, pulse all ingredients in a food processor until it forms a coarse meal and begins to come together. Press into a 9 inch tart or pie pan and refrigerate while you make the filling.

To make the filling, blend the cashews, agave nectar and coconut oil in a food processor until smooth. Add the avocados, lime juice, lime zest and salt and blend until airy and smooth.

Spoon the filling into the crust. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
