Raw Carrot Mini Cakes

raw-carrot-cupcakes

If you are like me – reluctant to toss organic carrot pulp into the compost after juicing the carrots, this recipe might be worthy of your attention. The flavor and texture of these cakes come pretty close to a conventional carrot cake despite the fact that there are no processed sugar, wheat flour, eggs, dairy, and crazy amount of oil. You don’t need to purchase any special molds since they can be easily turned into the cupcakes. This recipe requires a dehydrator.

Happy Easter!!!

Raw Sun-Dried Tomato Zucchini and Olive “Bread”

raw-sun-dried-tomato-bread

Yes, I know, they look like crackers, but these things are quite pliable and the texture is soft, so they are referred as bread in the raw foodists world.

I dried the bread in a dehydrator, but you can achieve similar results in an oven on a very low setting, although I do recommend a dehydrator as the healthiest “baking” device. We’ve got our Excalibur Food Dehydrator basically to replace the traditional popcorn with healthier alternatives, such as zucchini, kale, and apple chips for family movie nights. But it’s capable of so much more! The dehydrator is my favorite toy now. There are different model and sizes available to suit different needs and budgets.

Chocolate Chia Pudding with Orange Flavoured Prunes

Raw Chocolate Chia Pudding with Orange flavoured Prunes

It always helps me to tame the chocolate cravings without consuming any processed sugar. Surprisingly, even a small serving is quite satisfying. The pudding takes no time to make, it just needs a couple of hours in the refrigerator to chill and firm up. I like to divide the pudding between small Mason jars with screwed-on lids which gives me an opportunity to pack it for lunch and take it with me.

Cinnamon Brownie and Dulce de Leche Ice Cream Sandwiches

cinnamon-brownie-dolce-de-leche-ice-cream-sandwiches

This ice cream is the best dulce de leche ice cream I’ve tried. It’s better than the Häagen-Dazs’, no kidding. And it’s extremely easy to make. The recipe is adapted from the Gourmet who is, in its turn, adapted it from Mariana Crespo, Buenos Aires.

I paired the ice cream with the cinnamon brownies. These are seriously cinnamony, decrease the spice amount if you are not a fan.

Pig Cake Tutorial Inspired by Minecraft

minecraft-pig-cake-tutorial

This is a very adaptable project. It can be easily scaled up to suit your serving needs. In this tutorial I’m illustrating step-by-step how to build a supporting structure, carve the cake, and decorate it with tiny mosaic gum paste tiles.

I want to inform any potential buyers that this project is a time-consuming and patience-requiring task. Despite the fact that all necessary components can be made well in advance, you will still need to allocate a good deal of time to attach the mosaic squares to the cake, so plan accordingly. I also strongly recommend using a pasta roller, either an electric attachment to your stand mixer or a hand-cranked one, for rolling the gum paste. You have to possess some very basic carpentry skills – being able to cut wooden boards to required size and screw structural components together, or have someone to help you.

If you have any questions or need an advice, I’m always here to help. These questions are always my first priority; I make every effort to answer them in timely manner.

Lemon Cupcakes with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting

Lemon raspberry cupcakes

The cupcakes are actually double-raspberry – there is a raspberry jam filling hidden under the frosting. I used the same jam, instead of commonly used icing sugar, to sweeten the cream cheese frosting. I strongly dislike the mouthfeel of icing sugar-based fillings.
