Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg cel/gas 4 and grease a 20cm loose- based cake tin.
  • Grind the cornflakes and nuts in a food processor until quite fine and mix with the seed oil.
  • Press the mixture into the base of the tin, smooth with the back of a spoon then bake for 5-6 mins.
  • Meanwhile, process the tofu with the honey, vanilla, orange zest and egg yolks in a food processor.
  • Spoon into a bowl and fold in the brown rice flour, baking powder and raisins.
  • In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they are very stiff and fold 1 tbsp into the tofu mixture.
  • Then fold in the rest and spoon over the baked base.
  • Return to the oven and bake for about 35mins, covering with foil after about 20mins to prevent over-browning.
  • Remove the base from the ring but allow the cake to cool on the base before serving.
