Tools: bowl, serving plate, hands, imagination

Step 1- Make the Cake mix:

Ingredients:

-         2 T coconut or almond milk

-         6 T raw cacao powder

-         2 T maca powder

-         1T lucuma

-         ½ t vanilla seeds

-         2 T coconut flower nectar or manuka honey

-         A pinch Himalayan salt

Combine the nut milk, sweetener, and salt in a large bowl.

Add the dry ingredients, one by one – maca, cacao powder, lucuma and vanilla seeds. Mix until it becomes a chocolate superfood dough.

Divide the mixture into two equal parts.

Roll each part into a ball and flatten between your palms so they look like thick, dark pancakes.

Place one “love cake” on a plate sprinkled with shredded coconut.

Step 2 - Building the cake:

Ingredients:

-         1 T fresh chilled coconut cream

-         1 t shredded coconut, for garnish

-         1 t raw cacao powder, for garnish

-         1 T extra coconut nectar for smudging the bottom layer of the cake (optional)

Spread the extra sweetener (if you decide to use it) on top of the first chocolate layer. Add a layer of coconut cream.

 Gently place the second chocolate “pancake” on top of the cream.

Align the layers. You are a chocolate version of Michelangelo now.

Dust the top of the cake with cacao powder and decorate with shredded coconut.

Serve chilled, on one plate with two folks! 

Candles?

Love is always in the air. Enjoy!
