    Was a great birthday cake substitute for someone who likes to avoid refined sugar and went well with my daughters lactose free and low fructose needs.

    Hi there Mima and tracyO


    im sorry, i though id responded!


    it means to just cut about a 3cm chunk of a block of cacao butter which you can get from health food shops. 

    Sometimes you can get it in a bag already in chunks. 

    In the same way if you saw "3cm piece of ginger" do the same with this recipe  

    (Don't feel like you have to use the lecethin - it's an obscure product and not 100% nescicary)

    NOTE: Ammendment to measurements.


    Measure 350g unsoaked nuts first then soak them. Once they've absorbed the water, it will measure approx 490g.
