Hott Review:

I never before realized how difficult it would be to review a cookbook but here goes it. 🙂
In my endeavor to eat healthier, I found that I still occasionally crave desserts. The problem is that so many of the ingredients (dairy, eggs, & processed foods) either give me an upset stomach or have other side-effects I don’t like. I purchased Rawsome Vegan Baking because by it’s very nature this cookbook would contain mostly foods that I’m able to eat without side effects. The only con to this cookbook is that the ingredients are expensive – but, it’s been my experience that if you’re going to eat in a healthy way you’re going to pay more.

I’ve found not only Rawsome Vegan Baking, but also Emily von Euw’s website, to be an amazing wealth of information and great recipes! I now can have my desserts (though I still have to watch quantities and ingredients) without worrying about the miserable after issues.

Example Recipe from Rawsome Vegan Baking:

Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting:

Cashew frosting:
2 cups cashews, preferably soaked for a couple hours
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
Water, as needed

Cake:
2 large carrots, peeled
1 1/2 cups oat flour or buckwheat flour
1 cup dates
1 cup dried pineapple (or more dates)
1/2 cup dried coconut
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

To make the frosting: blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender until smooth, adding as little water as possible. Put in a bowl and set aside.

To make the cake: cut the carrots into small chunks. Then throw all the ingredients (including the carrots) in your food processor and pulse until it’s all in really small pieces and sticks together.

Assembly: Press half the cake mix into the bottom of an adjustable spring-form pan, mine was about 6 inches. Then spread on about 1/3 of the frosting. Put it in the freezer until the layer of frosting is hard. Then press on the rest of the cake mix. I let it set in the fridge overnight, then frosted the whole thing, but you can do it right away if you want. Take it out of the pan and use the remaining frosting, cover with whatever garnishes you like. Enjoy!
