Black Forest Cheesecake

Recipe by Nancy from http://www.nancyelza.co.uk

It’s always a good time for cake, don’t you think? Whether it’s your best friend’s birthday, a tea party or simply time for some comfort food on a rainy Sunday afternoon – cake is always a good option, especially when there’s chocolate involved!

60 mins

6-8 people



Base layer:
1/2 cup Flax Seeds
1/2 cup Hazelnuts
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Rice Malt
Cherry Layer:
1/2 cup Frozen Cherries
1/4 cup Rice Malt
3/4 cup Cashew Paste
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
Plain Layer:
1 cup Cashew Paste
1/3 cup Rice Malt
1 Tsp Vanilla Flavouring


1. To make the base, place the flax seeds, hazelnuts and coconut oil in a high speed blender and blend on high until it resembles a sandy texture.

2. Coconut oil grease your cake tin or tins and then empty the blender’s content out into them and press the mixture into the base of the pan ensuring to cover it all evenly. Place the base in the fridge to set.

3. To make the cherry layer, place all the ingredients into a clean blender and blend on high until the mixture is completely smooth; empty on top of the crust base layer and smooth out evenly before placing back in the fridge to set for at least 90 mins.

4. For the plain layer, you need to repeat the above step, putting all the ingredients in the blender and processing until smooth before spreading on top of the cherry layer evenly and placing back in the fridge.

5. To finish the dessert, after the final plain layer has set, spread a thin layer of Mr Organics chocolate spread and top with more frozen cherries and a sprinkle of desiccated coconut.
