Accessories you need
There are many varients to this recipe depending on dietary requirements and what's available in your pantry. I made this cake as a hybrid of different recipes as I only had certain ingredients available.
I'd like to credit my friend Stephanie O'Sullivan for the icing recipe, the EDC and Jo Whitten for the cake mixture recipe. My cake was created from putting together these three recipes with a bit of creativity from me.
Substitutes as follows:
Beetroot - Zucchini
Macadamia Oil - any nut oil, sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, vegetable oil, olive oil or butter
Spelt Flour - Plain flour, self-raising flour, gluten free flour or almond meal
Coconut Milk - Cow's milk or any nut milk
Vanilla Powder - Vanilla extract or vanilla essence
Rapadura Sugar - Raw sugar, caster sugar or rice malt syrup
Cacao Powder - Cocoa powder or carob powder
Rice Malt Syrup - Honey or maple syrup
Tamari - Soy sauce or salt
You could also soak the raw cashew nuts for an hour to make the icing smoother. I quite liked the crunchier texture.
