1 Tbsp shredded ginger - you can also use the powder. I've often already got the ginger in my pulp mix!
zest + juice of one orange
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins/sultanas
6-7 soaked dates
1/3 cup almonds (preferably soaked overnight)
Blend/process the dates, almonds and orange juice. Mix with all other ingredients except for the cashew nut cream. Press into a cake dish and top with the cashew nut cream and some extra shredded coconut.
*To make the cashew nut cream, I soak about a cup of cashews with about a cup of filtered or spring water, for about half an hour. Once soaked, whiz them up in a blender, and add a dash of vanilla - if it's too runny, just add some more nuts. Try not to eat too much before spreading over cake!
