1 cup goji berries
1 cup raisins
Handful of pumpkin seeds
Rind of 1 orange and 1 lemon
1 dessert spoon mixed spice
1 dessert spoon apple cider vinegar
Juice from 1 orange
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon purple corn extract (optional)
1/2 cup flax seed (ground)
1/2 cup sunflower seed (ground)
1/2 cup buckwheat flour (optional)
Pinch of salt
1. Soak the raisins, gojis, and pumpkin seeds in the orange juice and top up with warm water just to cover the fruit. Leave for an hour. Do not drain the water.
2. Place the fruit and fluid into a large bowl and add all the other ingredients. Mix well. You might need to add additional sweetener in the form of mesquite/carob.
3. Add some orange juice if the mixture is too dry. Adding the apple cider gives the cake a little boozy flavor! I made this up as I went along so feel free to experiment, as long as you end up with a stiff batter that you can shape into a cake.
4. Place the mixture onto the dehydrator tray lined with teflex.
5. Shape into a cake round with your hands and dry at 145 Fahrenheit for about 1-2 hours until it starts to feel firm on the top.
6. Turn cake over carefully by placing another tray over the top and flipping quickly over. Dry for another hour and then turn down the temperature to 115 Fahrenheit for the remaining hour or two or until the cake is fairly firm to the touch but moist inside.
7. Cool completely. Wrap in grease-proof or parchment paper and then foil.
8. Store in the fridge until Christmas day. Decorate to your heart desire.
One of the things I always loved about Christmas was having a fruit cake as the center piece of the table.
This year, I decided to make a raw version.
I plan to make a frosting using banana, cashews, and coconut oil to drizzle over the cake like snow!
