Recipe Directions

I also made a maple cream recipe from Raw Food Real World. And finally I made Carmella's whipped cream recipe. Both were delicious! All details and more information has been posted on my blog tonight. My dessert photo album has also been updated and the photos are much bigger.

JoyceH's Thoughts

By JoyceH

Spring in Vermont means maple sugar season and lots of fresh maple syrup! Having purchased 2 gallons of grade A maple syrup from our neighbors down the road, I wanted to experiment with a maple dessert this past Saturday. I was aiming for a maple flavored cheesecake or a cake that tasted like local maple fudge. However, when we tried the cake on Saturday night, we discovered that it tasted more like a very sweet, yet mild tasting coffee ice cream. Remember eating coffee ice cream as a kid? So although my cake didn’t achieve the main goal in mind, I was left with a pleasant surprise! Here's the recipe:

This is absolutely delicious. I made it for a potluck last night and got nothing but praise for it. Everyone was amazed that it was raw. (except of course for the maple syrup :) )

Hi Raw Ju Ju - so great to see another Vermonter on this site! I read your profile and I'm so happy to see you also love animals and care about animal rights. I am also a member of several organizations that are working to allievate suffering on factory farms. I must say that my husband and I feel lonely being vegans especially here in Vermont. All of our friends and family are carnivores so it's not always very easy being a vegan, let alone raw.

Anyhoo, just wanted to say hi! We live in West Bolton and I work on Church Street, Burlington.

Are you involved in any local animal rights groups or raw/vegan networks? How about raw or vegan potlucks? Are there any going on in Williston?

Cheers,

Joyce

Hi Turil, I think it would be good using dates, however it will taste different than my recipe as maple is very strong and distinctive. It might taste more like a white chocolate cheesecake due to the cacao butter and absence of maple syrup & flavoring if you use the dates.

Is fennelgreek the same as fennel seeds? If so, that definitely wouldn't work :-) I'm interested to hear what fennelgreek tastes like...

You can do all kinds of variations with this cake recipe but the flavorings will certainly change. Try yucon syrup for a more caramel tasting cake for example. But if you want that old fashioned coffee ice cream taste with a hint of maple, than I'd use everything I listed above.

Do you think this would be good if you used soaked dates to keep it raw (since maple syrup isn't)? Maybe adding some fenugreek to give it a maple flavor?

Thanks for the kind words! I definitely love my sweets! So many years of avoiding white flour and white sugar due to digestive issues. And to discover raw desserts and a few not so raw vegan sweeteners like maple syrup that treat my tummy so well. Life is good :-)
