Raw Food Fruit Cake Would be great as a Christmas cake

- by Sue Yates. This is a recipe I gave to Sue to try, not one I had tried myself and she chopped and changed a few things. This cake is heavenly and I for one will certainly be making this rich  delicious cake for Christmas as it’s far better than a conventional Christmas cake. Thankyou Sue


Fruit and Nut Cake – Raw

Fruit mix:

1 ¼  cups chopped dates

1 ½ cups chopped apricots

¼  cup prunes

¾  cup raisins

Mince fruit, or put through food processor until fairly finely minced.

Nut Mix:

1 cup walnuts

1 cup hazelnuts

1/3 cup ground sesame seeds

Grind nuts, or put through food processor until quite fine.

Bind fruit and nuts together to a sticky dough.  Press firmly into a spring form tin. Refrigerate.  I lined the tin with lunch paper first and then peeled the paper off the bottom when I turned it out onto a plate before icing.  Sprinkle the plate with a bit of fine coconut and it won’t stick to it.

Icing:

1 cup cashew nuts.  Soak for one hour in water.

¼  cup freshly squeezed orange juice

Finely grated orange rind

¼ cup runny honey

1 tsp vanilla essence

Pinch salt

1 tsp fresh ground ginger, or use ½ tsp dry.

¼ cup coconut oil or coconut butter, warmed enough to melt it. (Place in a bowl over warm water)

Drain the cashew nuts well, then blend all the ingredients together until very creamy.  It may take a good few minutes to get it nice and smooth.  Sit the mixture in freezer for a while to firm it up before spreading over cake.

Keep it in the fridge, or the icing will go very soft.

This makes a really solid and filling  cake!

Raw Apple Bread

4 apples peeled and cored

1 tsp of  cinnamon

1/2 cup water

2 cups of flaxseed flour

Process ingredients in whizz, you may need to take out in put in bowl if mixture stops turning over. Once mixed spread flat on dehydrator tray, make sure it is not too thick as it will take ages to dry. Dehydrate for 24 hrs or until desired texture. Filled with all your favorite fillings.
