Sweet treats.

For girls night, we decided to forgo the usual dinner out and stayed in for desserts instead. We had ice-cream, strawberry jello cheese cake and a whole platter of fruits for the chocolate fondue. Definitely don’t underestimate a girl’s appetite when it comes to desserts!

The jello cheese cake is really light and super easy to make. You can also substitute the jello flavours to create different cakes each time.

Ingredients (for 2 cakes):
1 - 2 pie shells
2 - 1 box of Orange Jelly Powder
3 - 2 small bags of Dream Whip Powder (85 g)
4 - 250 g cream cheese
5 - 8 oz milk
6 - 1 box of Strawberry Jelly Powder

Steps:
1. Mix ingredient 2 with 8 oz water, and pour into blender
2. Add ingredients 3-5 into blender
3. Blend ingredients until thoroughly mixed and has a creamy consistency
4. Pour the mixture into the 2 pie shells
5. Refrigerate the pies until mixture hardens
6. Mix ingredient 6 with 8 oz water
7. Slowly pour this liquid on top of the pies
8. Refrigerate for several hours

Oh my god. I’m making this.

Carrot Cake: Vegan, No Sugar, No Oil, can be No Wheat


This is my trusty carrot cake recipe, which I always use for people’s birthdays. It is healthy!

If I want it to be a sure thing with no glitches, I make a normal wheat version. Good friends get experimented on with non-wheat attempts, but everyone always eats it and likes it even when it’s pretty dense :)
When I tell people that there is truly nothing bad or fattening in it, everyone starts to go back for seconds. People who are diabetic are thrilled to get to eat the birthday cake at a party, with this one. The frosting will let you get away with a lot, if you’ve experimented on the cake ;)

Carrot Cake
1 cup unbleached flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
(I keep trying various blends of non wheat flour and getting extremely dense cakes, but if you use wheat it will turn out very nice. And if you get a good non-wheat blend, please let me know!)
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon each ginger, cloves, nutmeg
1/4 cup powdered soy milk (or regular)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup raisins
mix all these together

2 eggs equivalent of egg replacer, or 2 eggs
1 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup applesauce (natural, no sugar)
2 cups shredded carrot
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
mix all these together, add dry ingredients
bake at 375 until done (will take longer without wheat flour)

You can oil and flour two round cake pans for birthday cake, or make it in a square pan for a one-layer, easy version.

Cashew Creme frosting
2/3 cup coconut milk, or more
1-2 cups raw cashews
1/2-1 cup pitted dates, chopped up, the gooier the better
1-2 teaspoon vanilla
2-4 Tablespoons maple syrup or honey
optional: 1 container tofu cream cheese or Neufchatel cheese

put everything in a food processor or blend with a stick blender. Keep tasting to decide what to add, and make big or small amounts, depending on if you made a two layer cake or one layer cake.

If this is a birthday cake, decorate the top with raisins and walnuts, and you will get style points.
