Ingredients

For the base.

3 cups mixed raw nuts (almonds, macadamia, hazelnuts).

1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder

pinch Himalayan crystal salt

pinch vanilla bean powder

6-8 dates

1 tablespoon coconut oil

Method.

Pulse everything in food processor until fine and set aside.

Prepare cake tin (with removable base) using a little of the coconut oil on base and sides.

Cut baking paper to fit sides and base and adhere to tin.

Press the base ingredients firmly into the base of the tin, creating an even and firm layer.

Place in freezer ( I leave in freezer overnight, however a few hours will be fine).

Ingredients Filling (in 2 parts)

Part A)

4 cups raw cashews (soaked preferably overnight, however, a few hours will be fine).

pinch vanilla bean powder

3 tablespoons rice malt syrup

1/2 cup water

Method.

Drain and blend the cashews, vanilla bean, water and rice malt syrup until super smooth and creamy consistency.

Remove half the mixture and spread evenly  across the bottom of the tin.

Part B)

1 cup berries (fresh or frozen) I used raspberries from our garden.

1 tablespoon rice malt syrup

Method.

Add the berries and rice malt syrup to the remaining mixture in the blender and whizz until super smooth and creamy consistency.

Spread the berry mixture on top of the plain mixture and place in fridge to set.

Top.

I use a mixture of fresh berries and cherries gently mixed with a drizzle of rice malt syrup to create a binding gloss. Use as much as you feel will give you the look you want to achieve. You can create a simple layer of berries or pile high, layering and adding Borage flowers or other edible flowers.

Keep refrigerated and enjoy x
