Raw Cashew Cream Dreamcake

So I know I’ve covered¬†Raw Brownies recently, and maybe this will be the last raw recipe for a while. This is yet another recipe from the clever Sarah of My New Roots. Making this was my sister’s idea. It was a good one. I’ve included my, lesser quality pictures here, but the recipe is here on Sarah’s website. The pink layer comes from berries and the base is nuts and dates. It’s great vegan recipe and could be a great summer birthday cake.


Best tip: Cling wrap lining the tin. Makes it come out of the pan easily if you don’t have a spring-form pan.

IMAG1434Serve with berries (ours are still frozen but no less delicious).

IMAG1438All the pretty layers. Ok, so ours isn’t as pretty, but it’s still good eating.


And none for Gretchen Wiener.

Guest Recipe- Vegan(ish) Peach Cobbler

So I love chocolate sweets, yet who can resist seasonal fruit? In Australia, it’s winter, and thus not peach season, but here’s a post that will remind us southerners of summer and can be taken advantage of by my northern hemisphere readers at the end of peach season.



This recipe was made by my sister and I; a bit of kitchen cooperation we’d never tried before. Rather than re-type it, I’ll leave it in her charming handwriting (although she’s accidentally written “pears” instead of “peaches” in the recipe.



We ate it for breakfast and snacks for the next few days and even savoury-tooth Ben enjoyed it served with the tartness of a good natural yoghurt.

Putting on the topping. Cooperating and shit.

And finally: YUM. It’s super easy and as sister-dearest writes, honey can easily be swapped for agave or a similar substitution. It’s gluten free as the crumble has no oats, only nuts. Obviously, if you have a nut allergy, this isn’t the cobbler recipe for you!
