I was so happy when I came across a good sized wild blackberry patch! As it naturally comes with mean thorns (and some gorse as immediate neighbor) I had to come back with proper boots, thick pants and my pretty assistant to pick a good amount. I already dreamed of creating another no bake cake with them.
So, here we are, another recipe out of my no bake cake series is ready – and I’m very happy how these berries created this awesome flavour! Worth the scratches and and stiff backs 😉 Continue reading
It seems to me like the year 2013 was the year of vegan & raw cheese cakes. I must admit, they do look yummy. But I like a bit of fruit to go with them, so I started experimenting. The first creations that I did need a bit more fine tuning before I can share them here with you.
But on Christmas Day it happened: after receiving a box of fresh cherries from a friend I tried to make a cake using them. I worked with the Personal Blender and didn’t blend all the cherries at once, since they simply wouldn’t fit. But then I had the idea to leave the other half of the cherries as they were. This created an amazing effect, as you have some real fruit to chew on. It just turned out amazing! Everything was perfect: size of cake and the amount of fruit and coconut oil. And the vanilla cashew cream topping suited so perfectly!
