The Best Christmas Cake and Farewell
For several years I've been making a very scrumptious raw vegan fruit cake for Christmas. If you're not a fan, pretty please stay with me on this one. As a kid I always thought fruit cake was gross. My mom served it every year with a special sauce - I ate whatever other dessert option was available instead. BUT everything changed when I ate Snowdrop's raw fruit cake and I proceeded to make it every year since 2008. I also adapted the recipe to be a bit easier than the original. It's a really delicious dense, spiced raw cake.
Remember the Mandarin Orange Cheesecake I posted in my last post? I've made it again but with a few changes:
- I made mini cheesecakes in 4" spring form pans.
- A chocolate crust (which I think goes so nicely with orange.
- Omitted the pomegranate powder this time as I realize not many people have access to that and it still turns out great.
-I topped it with pomegranate seeds since I omitted the powder.
- I also swapped the cacao butter for coconut butter since someone who wanted to make it couldn't get cacao butter. It's just as great!
I won't be making any fruit cakes this year because J and I are off to Cuba for Christmas tomorrow!!! We're so excited! I wish you a wonderful holiday season and happy new year.
