Talking Blueberries and Whipped Cream Cake

This is inspired by my longing to try Carmella's Strawberry Shortcake recipe. Trying to patiently await strawberry season. So as a second, my freezer is full of blueberries I hand picked last year...and the flavor is out of this world. Thus I decided to do a blueberry layer with the rest of the strawberry shortcake recipe of Carmella's. The blueberry layer is modified from Carmella's chocolate and orange cake. This recipe is based on Carmella's, I can't take the credit. I just mix and mashed it .

~Blueberries and Whipped Cream cake~


Crust:

3/4 cup mejool dates
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 TBSP vanilla
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup ground almonds (I soaked and dehydrated mine till crunchy before turning into flour)
1/2 cup dried coconut flakes
1/2 cup cashews

FP nuts into flour then process in rest on ingredients, set aside, then FP dates into date paste, and mix in all the above.


Whipping Cream: (I doubled Carmella's recipe to have 2 layers)

2 cups cashews
2 cups fresh coconut milk ( blend 1 part dried coconut with 3 parts water)
1/2 cup agave nectar
2 TBSP lemon juice
2 TBSP vanilla
pinch of sea salt
1 cup of melted coconut butter/oil
2 TBSP lecithin granules (ground up into powder)

Blend all ingredients togethers except, coconut butter and lecithin...add these last to the blender.

Blueberry layer:

1 1/4 cups of frozen blueberries
1 1/4 cups soaked cashews
1/4 cup agave
2 TBSP. vanilla
1/4 melted coconut oil
1 TBSP. + 1 Tsp. lecithin granules (ground up into powder)

Blend all ingredients together except, coconut butter and lecithin...add these last to the blender.

TO ASSEMBLE:

1.) Press crust into the bottom of a springform pan.

2.) Pour half of the whipped cream mixture on top of crust mixture in springform pan. Then place in freezer for 1 hour to harden.

3.) Then pour blueberry mixture on top of firmed whipped cream mixture. Place back in freezer to harden.

4.) Pour final whipped cream mixture on top of firmed blueberry mixture. Place in freezer or fridge to firm.

5.) Decorate with shredded coconut and blueberries on top!

Enjoy!

I'm taking this to potluck tommorrow, so I'll take a picture and see if Carmella can post it since I haven't figured that out yet.

Oh goodness gracious! That sounds soooooo good! We still have lots of blueberries in the freezer so that's purrrrrfect!

I can't wait to see the pic! I'll definitely give you a hand putting it up if you need! Just give me a holler!

Hi girls~

It was soooo good!!! We all enjoyed it...my son just kept going "Mmmmmm"! It was so incredibly creamy and satisfying. The only (-) comment my husband said, was he wished I could make the crust more like a graham cracker crust. I haven't tried it the way FG mentioned, with making flour from the dehydrated almond pulp. Have any of you? I guess that's my next big experiment...making different crusts !

Oh, and the blueberry flavor was so out of this world, that next time I'll probably do 2 layers of blueberry and 1 of the whipped cream. Everyone in my household went nuts over the whipped cream so that's why I decided to do 2 layers of it this time. But I tell ya, that combo of Carmella's (from the orange/choc. cake)...she is onto something we can all just play with !!!

And Carmella...I just sent you the pictures. Let me know if you got them ok ...I have the email you gave me from RFT from last year, so hopefully it's still the same. Thankyou for being so willing to post the pictures for me. Your the best!!

Mishka

Mishka!!! Now you've got me all excited to try this. Mmmmmmmm

I tried dehydrating almond pulp only once. It felt to me that it was an unnecessary step as I ended up adding some liquid to the batter anyways. It just seems simpler to use the pulp wet.

Oh and I got the pics no problem, as u can see... It looks beautiful, girl!!!

I don't check that email much anymore, though, so your best bet would be to write to: sunnyrawkitchen@gmail.com

Hey girls!


On Thursday, my mom is coming to visit...and WHAT is my mom's favorite fruit??? BLUEBERRIES ! So I'm gonna do this again, but with 2 blueberry layers. I'll take pictures again and post them.

Have any of you made a crust with dehydrated cashews? I'm really interested in making a different crust.

I'm also thinking of maybe putting some cacao butter in it...(it finally arrived ) Guess we'll see what happens...

ttfn,

Mishka

Just wanted to give an update....


I definitely prefer having 2 layers of blueberry and 1 of the whipped cream! And for the crust I did the same...soaked and dehydrated almonds etc...but put in less dates...about 1/2 instead of 3/4 cup....it made the difference, it was drier and less datey. Experimenting is definitely worth finding exactly what suites your own taste buds My dh is a happy man! And my mom was in blueberry bliss.
