Coffee raw cake recipe on Linen cloth by LinenMe

Some days ago a friend of Klaus’ came over to have dinner with us. I wanted to make a dessert, but didn’t know what, so Klaus suggested me a tiramisù, since his friend loves it. The only problem was that I didn’t have anymore time to go to shop and didn’t have any mascarpone cheese or savoiardi biscuits at home, but I happened to have home some other stuff like coconut milk, dates, oats.. This is not a tiramisù, because tiramisù is unique and there is only one way to do it traditionally, but still it’s a very good raw coffee cake! It really tastes like coffee and the structure is so smooth. Also, Klaus had presented me that day a mini springform pan, only 12 cm of diameter, so I wanted to try it as soon as possible, of course! I love mini things in general, how could I not love a mini springform pan and mini cakes? Actually in the pictures the cake looks way bigger than it actually was!

Now, let’s clear up something. I eat wheat. I eat dairy. I don’t have any kind of allergy or intolerance and I try to eat little bit of everything. Some of my friends, though, have gluten or dairy intolerance, so that’s why I try to always have at home some substitutes. Also, I love to experiment new things, so that’s why this time I made this kind of cake. In this blog you’ll see me often try something different, but I wanted to let you know that my diet does not include any restrictions (actually only one, I’m allergic to shellfishes, alas). This said, let’s proceed with the recipe!
