We like to treat our guests to delicious desserts. These are of course also healthy and very tasty. What a delight! Find here the recipe of our Berry Delight Cake.
Ingredients (for 8 good size slices or 12 smaller ones)
-115 g almonds
-25 g sunflower seeds
-180 g fresh dates, pitted
-15 ml coconut oil
-pinch of salt
-125 g cashew nuts, soaked for a couple of hours
-50 ml coconut oil
-75 g honey or maple syrup
-1/2 lemon, zest and juice
-50 g frozen raspberries
-50 g frozen strawberries
-50 g frozen blueberries
To make the base:
place almonds and sunflower seeds in a food processor and run it for 1 minute or 2. Add dates, coconut oil and salt and process until it all comes together.
Evenly spread the base over the bottom of a cake tin (the best is to use a non-stick tin with removable bottom. If you don’t have one, use any tin available and line it with baking paper; this will help removing the cake from it afterwards).
Keep base in the fridge while you make the filling.
To make the filling:
place coconut oil and honey or maple syrup in a small saucepan and warm over low heat until they become liquid; stir to combine.
Drain cashews and place in a food processor. Add lemon juice, zest and the oil and honey/maple syrup mixture. Run the processor for a few minutes, until you obtain a very smooth mixture without any bits of cashew (it should have a creamy texture).
Remove tin from the fridge. Pour filling over the base of the cake and make it even with a spatula. Freeze for 30 minutes or so (until the filling is set).
To make the topping:
take berries out of the freezer some time in advance so that they thaw a little (you can do this before you start making the cake).
Place all berries in a food processor or blender and run till you obtain a smooth puree. Bring cake out of the freezer and pour topping over it, spreading it evenly over the cake with a spatula.
Place cake in the freezer again until the topping is set.
Remove the cake from the freezer 20 minutes before serving. The cake should be cold and firm, but not very hard.
If you want to decorate it, you can sprinkle some lemon zest over it just before serving. You can also add some fresh berries.
