Raw Tiramisu Cake

Raw TiramisuCake

Sometimes you need a cake or dessert that has some wow factor, and this raw tiramisu cake has it all.

It is dairy-free and gluten-free so it can be enjoyed by all.

Have you eaten celeriac before?

I have to admit that it is not the best looking vegetable around, but don’t be put off by it knotted and gnarly looks. Its flavour is well worth giving it a go.
