Therawmichelle's Thoughts

By therawmichelle

This date and nut torte is a great alternative to a traditional birthday cake.

It tastes amazing, the kids loved it, and so did we!

The frosting has a nice lemon zing to it.

We used a food processor to whip this up, but you may be able to get away with using a blender if that's all you have on hand.

For easier digestion and better assimilation, it might be best to have your nuts and dates soaked beforehand.

This is Alissa Cohen's classic Date Nut Torte from her book "Living on Live Foods". I always do this one in my demo classes ... It is amazingly good ... easy to make ... totally delicious. Try adding a bit of raw cacao powder to the torte base for that 'hint of chocolate'. ... yum.

It *is* really good . . . something about raisins + walnuts is greater than the sum of its parts . . .
