Raw Double Fudge Brownie Cake

Inspired by The Voracious Vegan

W and I attended a Native American Indian Pipe Ceremony on Saturday and had a fabulous time. It was a spiritual prayer circle or sorts, and the ceremony was very moving. It was a time for being present, with like-minded people, and putting our intention out to the Universe.

Afterward, we had a potluck dinner. I brought my Celery Root Soup with Granny Smith Apples and this Double Fudge Brownie Cake that I had never made before. It was pretty delicious and there were about 6-8 SAD eaters there and mostly everyone asked for a second portion. Folks were amazed at how yummy and rich a raw dessert could be. No surprise to us raw folk!!! I had some leftover Chocolate Fruit and Nut Bar that I crumbled on the top of the frosted cake. I tweaked the original recipe a bit and made a cake instead of brownie squares. Either way...the cake was a hit!
