DOUBLE CHOCOLATE LAYER CAKE 

1 cup chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

1 cup agave or honey, divided

6 eggs

1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, divided

3 cups raw cashews

1 cup coconut water

 

To prepare the chocolate cashew cream frosting: soak the cashews in water in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Drain, then transfer the soaked cashews to a blender. Add in 1/3 cup agave, 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and coconut water. Blend to combine until thick and creamy. Set aside and store in the refrigerator.

To prepare the cake: Preheat the oven 375 degrees. Add the chocolate chips, 2/3 cup agave and chocolate hazelnut butter to a microwave safe bowl and melt for 1-2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Transfer to a large mixture bowl. Whisk in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the unsweetened cocoa powder. Pour the batter into two round cake pans lightly greased with nonstick coconut oil spray. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Allow the cake to cool completely, then remove from the pans and transfer to parchment paper. Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Top with a thin layer of the chocolate cashew cream frosting. Place the second cake layer on top. Spread the top and sides with the remaining frosting. Slice and serve at room temperature or chilled.
