Raw Berry Celebration Cake

by Deborah Wray, from Wray Organic

TO MAKE THE BASE:
• 2 1⁄4 cups raw organic macadamias
• 1/3 cup (about 4) organic dates
• 1⁄4 cup raw organic cacao powder
• Blend in a food processor briefly until combined
• 1⁄4 cup Tru Ra organic sweet nibs (or similar)
• Add sweet nibs & blend a few seconds, so it's still crunchy
• Press into a 22 cm round springform cake tin
• Refridgerate for approximately 1 hour

FOR THE FILLING:
• 3 cups raw organic cashews soaked 2 hours & rinsed
• 1 cup nut milk (home made or an almond or hazelnut brand from your local organic store)
• 1⁄4 cup organic lemon juice
• 2 tbsp organic vanilla extract
• 1/3 cup (about 4) organic dates pitted
• Blend for about 1 minute, until smooth
• 3⁄4 cup organic cacao butter melted
• Blend until combined & silky smooth
• Pour into tin, over the base
• Put in the fridge to set for 2 hours

TOPPING:
• 700 grams organic frozen berries. Defrost, drain & save liquid
• Just before serving arrange approximately 2/3 of the berries on top of the filling. Or, once the cake is cut, arrange the berries on each individual serve.
• Blend the remaining berries with the drained liquid & place in a jug. This can be optional to pour on the slices of cake.

* DEBORAH'S TIPS:
• Remove sides of springform tin for ease of cutting.
• The base & filling can be made a few days before & add the topping just before serving.
• Replace the organic frozen berries with fresh fruit of your choice.
