Again Cheesecake ? Yes!!! Please I really want a piece. The good news doesn’t stop at this point either, because I finally found a recipe that stays in shape. Those of you who have ever made a raw cake know what I mean. The biggest problem is that the Cake is either hard as a rock, because it has just come out of the freezer, or it is falling apart in all directions. That is exactly why I have the solution, because this Cake remains firm, creamy and is pure pleasure. If you’re ready, feel free to read on now.
Boo! A vegan raw cheesecake that stays in shape. Oh lala.
Actually, I discovered the trick rather by accident when I was experimenting with making coconut yogurt. There was a vegetable binder in there, tapioca starch to be exact. The finished Cake was not to be surpassed in firmness and creaminess. A real delight on the tongue and a silent cry for more. I’m not talking 30 degrees and pure sunshine now, but in the fridge the raw cake absolutely keeps its shape.
A cake base that tastes like marzipan? – here you go
How often have I made raw cake made bases from almonds and walnuts? Many, many times. This time, however, I opted for other nut varieties and the result is really promising. Brazil nut kernels and pecans. Together with Medjool dates, the raw dough becomes almost a bit like marzipan. Simply wonderful!
The filling is just deliciously refreshing for hot summer days, with cashews, vegetable yogurt, lemon juice, maple syrup, a little vanilla, orange zest, coconut oil, tapioca starch and a pinch of salt.
Important to know: I use a springform pan with 15cm diameter. This is the ideal size for a Raw Cheesecake because it is much more compact and rich than a conventional cake and therefore you will eat a smaller piece of it (except my husband).
- The bottom: A good food processor is a must here. I work with preferably with my Magi Mix (advertising because brand name). The device, unlike a high-powered blender, does not require liquid and is simply a dream for raw soils.
- The filling: soaking the cashews is the most important thing here, unless you have a powerful blender. I have a Blendtec (advertising because brand name) and soak the seeds before not, because the blender has so much power that he gets the seeds with enough liquid wonderfully soft. If you soak the cashews beforehand, there are two methods. More about this at the bottom of the instructions.
Perfect with a homemade sauce of raspberries, lemon juice, a little maple syrup and optional agar agar. Alternatively, you can always opt for a ready-made fruit sauce from the organic supermarket.
I hope you now have a desire for a delicious piece of yogurt raw cheesecake. If yes, then I wish you much fun with the “Nachbacken” and of course about a rating at the bottom of this page. If you post a picture, use the hashtag #veganevibes.
NOTE: The raspberry sauce is NOT raw (or raw) because it is boiled once together with agar agar. If you want to make a raw version, use xanthan gum as a thickener and DO NOT heat the raspberry sauce above 42 degrees.
