On my way to America to go to the Raw Spirit festival, I had a horrible experience at US customs which left me traumatised and angry (you can view the full story here ) So I came home, and as I do, I made cake. As George Clinton said, free your mind and the rest will follow, the kingdom of heaven is within. Who needs to chase the American dream, when we have magic cake recipes to help us create our own patch of paradise wherever we are?



Melt the coconut butter in a porringer or in a bowl stood inside a pan of just boiled water. Grind the buckwheaties into flour in a high power blender or coffee grinder. In a mixing bowl, stir together the buckwheat flour, yacon flour, xylitol, suma, purple corn, and he shou wu. Once it's evenly mixed, stir in the Lexia raisins (these are an extra plump, juicy raisin, if you can't get them you can just use usual raisins). Then pour in the coconut oil and give it another stir. Finally pour in the water until you have a stiff dough. Press it into a cake tin and leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours. Once it's set, cut it into squares, three across by three down. Store in the fridge, will keep for a couple of weeks.
