Delicious Raw Cakes – Soaking Nuts

I have recentlyTiramisu started making raw cakes.  Pictured is a raw, vegan version of Tiramisu with no processed sugar.

Cashew nuts are often a really good way to add a creamy consistency to the topping.  Including almonds make a crunchy base.

An important thing to note is that it is always good to soak any nuts that you use in the recipe. It is recommended to soak for 7-24hours.  I do this overnight wich takes little effort and only a bit of forsight.  Soaking eliminates or minimises nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances found in nuts grains and seeds
