Quick, cheap & easy mock cheese cake recipe


A cup of tea & sheer bliss! ┬ęcopyright2013owpp

A cup of tea & sheer bliss!
┬ęcopyright2013owpp

This is a very easy recipe with very common and inexpensive ingredients. Besides a blender it doesn’t need any machinery. As I’ve told you in previous posts, I don’t have too much patience nor time for lengthy and complicated recipes.
As I’m on a macrobiotic food plan I don’t eat dairy products so, this is a perfect alternative. The taste is not the one of cheese but it’s nevertheless a delicious cake.
Let me know the results if you feel like venturing in the experience (for the fun) of a cozy Sunday afternoon ­čÖé
