Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bottom layer:

    2 Apples (core-free), 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon raisins, 1 teaspoon flax-seed flour, few drops of water. Optional: 1 teaspoon of carob powder and few drops of acacia honey. Blend to get a smoothie or mix it in a food processor. Add and stir in 4 spoons of chopped walnuts and 1-2 tablespoons of baby oat flakes or oat flakes flour and rest for 15 min to absorb the liquid and give a firm consistency. Arrange the bottom layer using a 2-3 inch metal cake ring and pressing slightly to make sure it settles equally.

  2. Middle layer:

    3 Apples (core-free), 6 dried plums, 6 dried apricots, 1/4 teaspoon Bourbon vanilla powder. Blend slightly for a few seconds all ingredients or mix shortly in a food processor with few teaspoons of water (or without water if you soaked the dried fruits for few hours previously). Add it on top of the bottom layer, using the 2-3 inch metal cake ring and settling equally.

  3. Top layer:

    Fresh quince or dried cranberries jam (1 small quince or 4 tablespoon dried cranberries mixed in a food processor with acacia honey, ¼ teaspoon of fresh ginger, few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice, ¼ tablespoon cinnamon). Add it on top of the second layer and decorate with fresh fruits.
