Cheesecake Success

February 17, 2011

The Raw Cashew Dreamcake (from the previous post) turned out to be a success! I couldn’t believe how much it tasted like cheesecake. I liked the raspberry layer better than the white layer so I will make it with more raspberry next time and less white.

I could definitely work on presentation, my cake didn’t look nearly as pretty as My New Roots. I think it would have been better to use a smaller size pie dish so that the cake was taller. I am also going to re-name it: Raw Raspberry Cheesecake.

I hope you all have as much fun making and eating this as I did.

    So, I saw your previous post just days before my own birthday. And, not kidding, I had just requested raspberry cheesecake for my birthday cake. I was planning on a splurge. After seeing your post, I opted to try this version instead. THANK YOU for sharing!!! I am in LOVE!!! My family ate it so quickly that I had to try another version. I made it in chocolate…..SINFUL? Maybe. It, too, was wonderful. Maybe you should just call it DREAMCAKE and make it whatever flavor you’re feeling like!!!

    Happy Birthday- I love that you made this on your birthday and you loved it. What did you do to make it chocolate? Add cocoa? Sounds good!

    When I made the chocolate version, I doubled the recipe. (Except for the lemon juice). I still only used the juice of 2 lemons. It didn’t have a strong lemon flavor at all so I’m not sure how it would be if you used 4. I also added about 1/4 cup of cocoa instead of the raspberries and about 1 Tbsp. agave so it didn’t turn bitter. It was awesome – I suggest you give it a try as well!
