oday I’m making another cherry dessert. Besides being delicious, my raw cherry and white chocolate mini cakes are also gluten free, refined sugar free and vegan – because you’ve asked for it! So, let’s start!
To make my raw cherry and white chocolate mini cakes first thing I have to do is soak my cashew nuts and dates in cold water for a couple of hours or overnight. I like to weigh and soak my cashews separately for each layer because they will become heavier – so if you soak all the cashews together, you will have to weigh them again and divide in two. Before making my cakes I will drain everything and discard the water. Another thing you need to keep in mind is – have all of your ingredients at room temperature, because if you put, for example melted coconut oil together with super cold almond milk in your blender – coconut oil will set immedietaly, and it will be much more difficult to make smooth, silky filling.
To make these cuties you will need a food processor and a high speed blender. Using those appliances you will obtain the best results. So, to make the base all I need to do is pulse almonds in a food processor. Then, I’ll add drained dates and cocoa powder and pulse again until I get crumbly but sticky mixture. I will press this mixture into the bottom of my ring molds.
To make my cherry filling I will place all the ingredients in my blender and blend until I get smooth mixture. I will pour it into my molds until I fill them halfway, and then put them in the freezer until it sets. I will make my white chocolate filling the sam way, and once I get my smooth mixture I will fill my molds all the way to the top. I will store the remaining white chocolate filling in the frige. When my mini cakes are set, I’ll decorate them with some more white chocolate filling, and place one cherry on the top! Yummy!
