The base of the cake is very dark but quite addictive. It is my all-time favourite raw vegan cake base. If you’re still a little new to raw cacao or dark chocolate in general, it might be a little strong, but if you like the taste of dark chocolate you will most likely love the taste of the base. The recipe is also gluten free and packed full of nourishing whole foods.
