100g (3½oz) brown

Rice flour

120g (4oz) cornstarch

20g (¾oz) tapioca fl our

½ tsp cinnamon

½ tsp green stevia

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 banana, peeled

240ml (9fl oz)

Almond milk

40ml (½fl oz) dark rum

2 tbsp apple

Cider vinegar

1½ tsp gluten-free

baking powder

FOR THE CREAM

50g (1¾oz) almonds, soaked

50g (1¾oz) cashew nuts, soaked

125g (4½oz) organic tofu

½ a vanilla stick

fi nely grated zest of ½ an orange

120ml (4fl oz)

Almond milk

4 dates

Colourings – either use finely grated carrot, saffron flowers or turmeric

FOR THE COFFEE INFUSION

2 tbsp soluble espresso

1 tsp green stevia

100ml (3½fl oz)

lukewarm water

100ml (3½fl oz)

lukewarm almond milk

1 tbsp raw cacao, to decorate

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4. Soak the nuts in water. For the cake, mix the flours and cornstarch together with the cinnamon and stevia.

2 Blend the banana, almond milk and coconut oil. When smooth, pour over the flours and mix well.

3 Add the apple cider vinegar and rum and incorporate into the batter. Sift in the baking powder and mix well.

4 Cover a rectangular baking pan with parchment paper. Pour in the batter and bake for 30 minutes.

5 While still warm, cut the cake into 5cm (2in) squares. There should be 20 total.

6 For the cream, combine all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until you get a perfectly smooth and firm consistency. If you use silken tofu (instead of firm) you’ll need a little less milk.

7 For the coffee infusion, heat the water and milk, then combine them in a soup plate with the soluble coffee. Mix well and add some stevia.

8 Take 10 squares of cake and dip both sides in the coffee mixture. Make sure they are not too soggy nor too dry. Place them on a platter and scoop 2 tbsp cream on top of each one. Infuse the remaining squares, place them over each piece of tiramisu and scoop a second layer of cream on top. Decorate with raw cacao.
