IMG_2349You guys have probably already noticed but I love making cakes. So what do you do in a model apartment without an oven? You make microwave cakes, and more microwave cakes and then you try out some other microwave cakes.. and then? You make a non bake cake! This was my first fry of a non bake cake ever but it turned out really good! I just looked up and read a bunch of recipes online and then made up this one myself, a small raw coconut strawberry lemon cake.


For the crust

(It depends how big your tray is to say how much you actually need but can easily add more or less of them all. Mine was about 15 cm big)

  • About 8 walnuts
  • About 6 dates
  • 6 tablespoons  grated coconut

For the cream

  • 5 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 5 tablespoons grated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 medium strawberries

For the topping (all optional)

  • Some more slices of strawberries
  • Some grated lemon skin
  • Some extra grated coconut
  • Blend the walnuts to little pieces
  • Get the pits out the dates and add them with the coconut for the crust to the blender
  • Blend until it’s an equal mixtureIMG_2320
  • Put some baking paper (I didn’t have any so I used a thin plastic bag, it worked fine but I would recommend to use baking paper if you have it) in a tray
  • Press the crust mixture into the tray to a thin crust (if it sticks to much to your fingers you can make your hand a little bit wet to make it easier)
  • Put in the tray in the freezer or fridge while you make the rest
  • Put all ingredients for the cream together in a blender and blend well until you’ve got a smooth mixture
  • Put it on top of the crust in the tray and top it with the toppingsIMG_2335
  • Put it in the freezer for about 2 hours (longer or even overnight will be fine too)
  • Let it unfreeze for about 5/10 min (until the cream is soft enough to eat but is not melting yet)
  • Enjoy!

I had it with my banana ice cream (click here for the recipe)
