This gorgeous three layered cake was especially made for us at Be Good Organics HQ this week by a talented local New Zealand raw cake extraordinaire, Olivia Scott from The Raw Kitchen. Olivia creates all sorts of glorious healthy, raw, plant-based, whole-foods cakes, for hungry health-conscious foodies all over Auckland.

Olivia and I had been chatting recently, and decided it would be fun to set a wee superfood challenge, where she would create a cake using all our customers' favourite superfoods from the Be Good Organics store. We're talking raw certified organic cacao powder, coconut oil, brazil nuts, sunflower seeds, goji berries, acai berriesmaca powderpsyllium husksesame seed tahiniyacon syrup, coconut nectarcoconut flour, dried coconut, raw cashews, dates, lemon juice, and fresh blueberries.

And voila, the Raw Summer Superfood Cake was born. This delectable cake is the perfect treat for an upcoming birthday or celebration, and will leave your guests feeling full, satisfied, nourished, and 100% full of health. It's also wonderful to make during a regular ol' week, then slice up and keep in the freezer for when that afternoon/post-dinner sweet craving emerges. Thank you to Olivia for sharing one of her gorgeous gourmet creations with us.

How to
  1. Blend sunflower seeds in a blender first until fine and set aside. Blend brazil nuts until fine (or keep chunky if preferred) and set aside. Blend soaked dates, coconut oil, and sea salt until pureed. Mix all ingredients together in a big bowl and add cacao (add more if needed to taste like chocolate). Press into a springform pan and place in freezer to harden the base.
  2. Filling 1: Mix all ingredients except psyllium husk until it is a smooth consistency. Add extra coconut flour if needed, should be a thick consistency but still smooth. Set aside in a pour jug (do not add psyllium yet).
  3. Filling 2: Mix all ingredients except psyllium husk until it is a smooth consistency. Add extra coconut flour if needed, should be a thick consisteny but still smooth. Set aside (do not add psyllium yet).
  4. Take out your base from the freezer. Add your tbsp of psyllium to the goji berry, maca, vanilla filling and stir quickly and pour straight away onto your base. Spread around so that the filling is even.
  5. Add your tbsp of psyllium to the blueberry and acai filling and stir quickly and pour straight away onto your base. Spread around so that the filling is even.
  6. Your cake will now take an hour to set in the fridge or freezer. I always like to leave it overnight to help the flavours release.

This cake will keep in the fridge for up to three days. Otherwise 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. I like to serve this with a generous dollop of my Coconut Cashew Chia Cream, some fresh seasonal local fruit, and a herbal tea. Then relish the benefits of all the SUPER foods being released through your body.

Would love to hear what you think. Head on over to our Facebook page to join the conversation.
