To make any raw cake, you will need a good quality blender. If you don’t have one, your cream will always remain a bit grainy, which is not necessarily a bad thing. However, if you like cakes with silky creams, you will need to do some serious shopping.
Another great thing about raw cakes, besides outstanding taste, is simplicity. All you need to do is weigh the ingredients and pop them into your blender. Well, actually you will need to do some planning ahead, since you will need to soak dates and cashew nuts in cold water for a couple of hours. But everything else is so quick and easy! You will put the ingredients into a blender, and blend them thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the mold, and put in the freezer for a couple of hours.
All this shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes. Raw cakes are absolutely awesome, and delicious, too!
One more thing before we get to work – I have to make a confession. This cake isn’t entirely raw. The reason for that is simple – I prefer toasted hazelnuts over raw ones because they taste so much better. If, however, you strictly follow raw food diet, you won’t toast your hazelnuts, of course. So, this cake is actually raw-ish, or we could say almost raw, that’s all. Let’s not bake today!
