Before you make this cake, watch this video on how you can make a marble like effect on top:

You should also know that psyllium husk is a very fast, mixture thickening powder that allows the cake to hold perfect shape. When you add psyllium into your mixture at the end of the recipe, be sure to pour it within 2-3 minutes.

Goji Berry, Citrus & Vanilla Cream Marble Cake

HOW TO

Method
Blend cashews in a blender or Thermomix* until fine and set aside. Blend almonds until fine and set aside (or keep chunky if preferred). Then blend dates, vanilla powder and sea salt until pureed. Mix all ingredients with hands until a firm dough-like texture. Press into a 22cm springform pan and set in freezer while making filling 1 and 2.

Filling one
Blend all the ingredients except the psyllium, and set mixture aside. (Taste to make sure it is tasting delicious, add more of what you desire)

Filling two
Blend all the ingredients except the psyllium, and set mixture aside. (Taste to make sure it is tasting delicious, add more of what you desire)

Take your base out of the freezer, it will now be firm and ready for your filling. 

Now is the time for psyllium husk to be added to Filling one (Vanilla Cream) Stir quickly and evenly. Pour 2/3rds of this filling onto your base and set remaining mixture aside. 

Now add psyllium to Filling two (Goji Citrus) and pour 2/3rds of this on top of Filling one.

Marble
As you would have seen in the above mentioned youtube video, plop FILLING 1 and FILLING 2 around the top of the cake. With a skewer, get creative with your marbling for the perfect finish, this will be sure to impress your guests!

This cake will keep in the fridge for up to three days. Otherwise once set, slice it into individual servings and put them in a sealed container in the freezer for up to three months. Simply pull a slice or two out 10-20 minutes before you need it, so your mouth doesn't turn to ice trying to eat it! I like to serve this with a generous dollop of my Coconut Cashew Chia Cream, some fresh seasonal local fruit, and a herbal tea.
