Recipe Directions

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

For the base:

Blend up the raisins and walnuts and perhaps a few dates in the food processor.

Form onto a plate in whatever shape you want.

For the frosting:

Blend up the dates and the lemon juice and spread over the base.

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.

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

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.
