Strawberry cake: vegan recipe №1
- 500 g cashew;
- 150 g almonds;
- 10 dates without bones (or dried figs);
- 1 tbsp. honey (or to taste);
- 0.5 glass of coconut milk;
- 1 tsp. olive oil;
- 200 g fresh or frozen strawberries;
- 1 pinch of salt (optional).
Not fried cashew should be soaked in water for at least 1 hour or all night. The longer the nuts are soaked, the darker the color will be.
Remove the bones from the dates.
Prepare the base: mix in a blender almonds and dates until a plastic mass is formed. You can use the mixing with walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut chips, etc. Optionally, a pinch of salt can be added.
If to grind with the blender is difficult, add olive oil.
Use baking form with high borders, to cover it with food film. Distribute and press the base from nuts and dates along the bottom of the baking form (I have a diameter of 20 cm).
The soaked cashew put in a blender together with honey (honey gives a sweetness, the amount is adjusted to your taste) and grind until a homogeneous mass is formed. In the process of grinding the nuts give “nut milk”, it will be mixed with the rest of the nut mass and produce a homogeneous dense cream.
If to grind with the blender is difficult, refill with water or coconut milk.
Distribute half of the cream on a nut base.
Add fresh or frozen strawberries to the other half and beat with a blender.
Distribute the rest of the cream over the first white layer.
Leave the cake for several hours or overnight in the freezer.
Take the cake out of the freezer half an hour before serving, remove it from the baking form, remove the food film, and even out the irregularities with a knife wetted in hot water. Decorate the cake as you wish.
