Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients for the cake in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is fine and just starts to come together. If you pinch some between your fingers it should hold together.
  2. Pack firmly into a baking paper lined a 20cmx15cm square cake tin, smooth the top and refrigerate.
  1. To make the icing soak the cashews for 15 minutes – 1 hour, in hot water. Drain and rinse. Combine the soaked cashews, coconut cream, coconut oil, lemon juice and Natvia in a blender or food processor and blitz until smooth. Smooth over the top of the cake and sprinkle over the extra cinnamon. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
