RAW FIG, CHERRY, LAVENDER AND HONEY CAKE

RAW • DAIRY FREE • GLUTEN FREE • REFINED SUGAR FREE 

| fills a 7½ or 8 inch cake pan |

Base:

  • 2 cups macadamia nuts

  • 1 cup desiccated coconut

  • ¼ cup date paste

  • 2 pinches Himalayan rock salt

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste

Filling:

  • 1½ cups cashews, soaked overnight

  • 1½ cups young coconut meat (this will be about two coconut’s worth)

  • ¾ cup nut milk

  • ½ cup raw honey (vegan alternative: ½ cup brown rice syrup / pure maple syrup)

  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • Juice of one lemon (or ¼ cup)

  • 1 tablespoon organic dried lavender

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla paste

  • 2 pinches Himalayan rock salt

  • 2 tablespoons psyllium husk*

  • Additional water to assist the blending if needed (perhaps a few tablespoons)

  • 1 cup red cherries, pitted

  • 3 large plump, fresh figs

*Psyllium husk is the husk of a seed and is an insoluble fibre. In liquid, it becomes gelatinous and swells, and acts a binder in the cake. If you cannot find any, you can simply either use a couple of tablespoons of lecithin or extra coconut oil.

METHOD:

BASE:

  1. Process everything till a nice dough forms.

  2. Pat firmly into the base of a 7½ inch cake pan lined with baking paper.

  3. Set aside while you make the filling.

FILLING:

  1. Blend the cashews, coconut meat, milk, honey, coconut oil, lemon juice, lavender , salt and vanilla paste till smooth. You may like to do this in two batches, for ease of blending.

  2. Now add the psyllium husk and blend again. Transfer to a large mixing bowl.

  3. In a food processor, quickly blitz the cherries and figs, then fold this through the rest of the filling.

  4. Pour the filling over the base of the cake and set in the freezer.

  5. Transfer to the fridge to soften a little before serving.

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

Recipe from https://www.bigoven.com/recipe/pumpkin-pie-pancakes/177348

Ingredients:

1/2 cup All purpose flour

1/2 cup Flour, whole wheat

1 tablespoon Brown sugar; packed

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin pie spice

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1 Egg

1 cup Milk

1/2 cup Pumpkin

1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Oil; for frying

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Preparation:

Put the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, spice, and salt into a medium bowl and mix thoroughly.

Crack the egg into a small bowl and beat with a whisk or mixer until yolk and white are mixed. Add the milk, pumpkin, and oil to this and beat again until ingredients are well mixed.

Prepare a griddle for cooking with oil, allowing it to get hot enough for the pancakes. Sprinkle a few drops of water on the surface; if the water dances across the surface, the griddle is hot enough.

Pour about 1/4 cup for each pancake onto the griddle and use a spatula to spread it into a circle. Cook over medium heat until pancakes have a slightly bubbly appearance to them; this will take about two minutes. Then turn the pancakes with a spatula and continue to cook for about another two minutes until the bottoms are golden brown. Repeat this until all the batter is used.

Notes:

Be creative with toppings! Plain yogurt mixed with pumpkin butter complements this recipe wonderfully.
