The Rawtarian's Thoughts
This raw birthday cake recipe is a guest post by Michelle from Raw Food Health Watch.
As far as I'm aware, and I'm happy to say, my children (3 year old girl, 17 month old boy) have never had processed or refined sugars, but they do have their "sweets" on occasion. In fact, they get super excited when they get to sit down to a nice handful of organic raisins :)
Well, they were very excited when, on my son's first birthday we prepared this delicious, but simple, date and nut torte raw birthday cake that I like to call "the birthday cake alternative." Who says we can't stick to tradition and still keep it healthy!
When making the base of your "birthday cake" you simply blend the "base" ingredients together and then mould onto a plate. For the "frosting" you blend up the ingredients and spread over the base. And that's it!
I have made this raw cake with other ingredients as well to change it up a bit, swapping out the walnuts with almonds for example, or using some figs in the base. There are lots of different variations, and the ones I tried were all very tasty. Enjoy!
