      Instructions
      Base
      1. Start soaking the cashews at least 4 hours before preparing the cake. The dates I would soak for 4-5 but you might need more based on the quality of your blender.
      2. Prepare a springform. I usually take a round form which I cover in baking paper (or at least the bottom of it). No need to grease the form.
      3. Make the base by grinding the walnuts and pecans (or other nuts) in a mixer or high-speed blender. Add the cocoa and dates and mix again. The mixture is good if it's sticky enough to roll a little ball from it. If not, add more dates.
      4. Press 2/3 of this mixture into the bottom of the springform as to form a neat base. Press well. Set the other 1/3 apart for later.
      Filling
      1. Melt the coconut oil. If you'd like to keep the cake 100% raw, melt it at low temperature (even on a heater or in the sun you can easily melt it). You can also melt it in a pan or pot.
      2. Mix or blend the liquid coconut oil, cashews, cocoa and dates until they form a smooth and even mixture.
      3. Pour the mixture over the base, making sure it evens out well, then sprinkle some of the left-over base and cocoa nibs on top.
      4. Leave the cake in the fridge over night or for a couple of hours. This is essential for its taste and structure. If you don't have a lot of time or can't wait, put it in the freezer for two hours.
