Nearly all of my of my cakes are ice-cream cakes. It’s so much easier to make raw cakes than to cook them! This is one of Emily von Euws’s recipes. I made this with my daughter and we pretty much stuck to the original, except that we didn’t have enough hemps seeds, so I supplemented with walnuts.
Emily buys her raw nuts in bulk, soaks them for 3 hours and then freezes them. This makes them more creamy when you add them to the food processor. Great idea too, in terms of protecting the delicate oils in the nuts from going rancid, especially in our humid Darwin weather. At the vert least, nuts and seeds should be kept in sealed containers in the fridge.
I LOVE Emily. She has brought so much joy into my life and my kitchen. Here is her recipe, with photos of my cake below. This is definitely one of my favourites, right up there with the caramel and coffee one she taught me.
