Ready to sink your teeth into it?
- Pour boiling water over the cashews and soak for 2 hours minimum (the longer the better- overnight is ideal if you have the time), uncovered, then drain.
- Use a little of the melted Flora to grease a 20cm springform cake tin.
- Blitz the hobnobs in a high speed blender until finely ground. With the motor running, pour in the melted Flora.
- Tip into the cake tin and use your hands and the back of a metal dessert spoon to press the mixture into the base of the tin.
- 3 Heat the oven to 160C/140C fan. Using a high-speed blender, blend the filling ingredients, scraping down the sides as needed until you have a really smooth mixture.
- Pour into the chilled biscuit case. Bake for 1 hour – 1 hr 10mins until set, with a very slight jiggle in the middle.
- Rest for 10 mins, then allow to cool completely in the fridge for 4-5 hours, preferably overnight. Don’t worry if it cracks a little - it’s going to be topped with fresh fruit!
- When ready to serve, remove from the tin, top with fresh raspberries and strawberries, and scatter with mint leaves.
