Method

For the sponge:

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor and process until everything is thoroughly combined.

For the cashew cream:

  1. Soak cashews in hot water for about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain and pat completely dry.
  3. Combine all ingredients in a high-quality food processor and process for 5-6 minutes until smooth (stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides).

For the chocolate glaze:

Mix ingredients together until smooth and all lumps disappear.

To assemble:

  1. Transfer half of the blueberry & coconut mixture into a lined parchment paper pan and press down firmly and evenly.
  2. Gently remove this from the pan and set aside (don’t break it) and repeat the same process with the remaining mixture but don’t remove it from the pan. This makes the first layer.
  3. Pour the cashew cream on the top of the blueberry layer.
  4. Gently place the second blueberry & cranberry layer on the top of the cashew cream.
  5. Pour chocolate mixture over the cake and use a spatula to spread it evenly and smoothly over the top.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours until chilled and set.
