its my wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks, our first raw one and i would like to make something special. i dont have a dehydrator and i wanted something cake like. i have tried the carrot cake, but i didnt really like the taste, too many carrots, so what would you suggest? i havent done a cake before. my hubby finds the date and nut torte too rich, so that is a no go too. any ideas please?
How about this one? I've never made it myself (yet) but it sounds delicious.
Julianos coconut cream cake (described by Juliano)
1st The crust is the usual almonds in the food processor,
until they turn into a flour (powdered) then add dates,
as many as You want, according to how sweet You want.
Pressed into Your large glass cake pan.
2nd The layers begin with a thick layer ( 1 2 inches)
of coconut pudding. (You know coconut pudding right?)
Blend: coconut water, coconut meat, dates, & vanilla. Mmmm.
3rd The next layer is fresh fruit (1 thick, what ever is in season)
I like chopped mangos, pineapples, and papayas if I can find
them ripe and sweet. You can use Your favorites fruits.
4th Another layer of coconut pudding (1thickness).
5th Another layer of fresh chopped fruit. And so on
Layer as many times as Your pan is deep.
I like to top it off with fresh blueberries or strawberries.
(Blueberries last longer.)
Because of all the coconut pudding, its a little time
consuming. When I know Im going to make this cake,
I drink & save at least 10 coconuts in the refrig.
Then Ill make a bunch of coconut pudding.
Ill make it for special occasions only,
special birthdays, and Thanksgiving dinners.
Everyone whos ever tasted it LOVES IT!
Most people cant believe its made with all raw foods
Another possibility, again one I haven't made, is Alissa's Black Forest Cake. Reports are it is incredible.
