My parents were up for a birthday visit and I wanted to make a cake that we could all eat. So that meant a cake with no dairy, no sugar and heart healthy(: I modified a couple of recipes to make a tastey cake thought it wasn't as moist as I'd like so I'm suggesting to add in some banana and it''ll be tastey.
1 cup cashew pieces
2/3 cup water
1/2 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
Blend cashews and water until VERY smooth (make sure there is no grit left from the nuts).
Add honey, salt, vanilla, egg and lemon juice and blend again.
Combine dry ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
Pour into an 8" square or round pan (I grease mine with coconut oil).
Bake for about 35 minutes at 350.
Remove and cool.
1 cup dates
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup cocoa
Puree all ingredients in a food processor. Spread onto cake - it is DELICIOUS!! If there's leftovers you can use a spatulat to put it into a glass loaf pan and freeze it. Tastes like gelato!
