I'm chef Bryan Au from Raw Star Cafe and Restaurant. And I'm going to teach you a few recipes from my Raw Star recipe book which won the number one best vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free cookbook in the U.S. award 2012 by the Gourmand World Cookbook awards. So this is a vegan cake mix recipe. And the reason why are calling it a cake mix is sometimes you buy it at the store and it comes in a box. But we are going to recreate that in a raw organic fresh version. And this is how you make my vegan cake mix recipe. But we are going to make the fresh version at home. So you want to grind about two cups of golden raw organic flax seeds in a blender. Now I've already grinded, it but I wanted to show you how to do it at home. So you put it in a blender and then you blend until it's a powder. And you want to high powered blender in order to do this. Then you pour it into a large mixing bowl. Then you use some dried raw organic sun-dried coconuts that are shredded. Some cinnamon and you want to mix that up a little bit. Then you add two bananas. And this is what will make it into the cake like dough and batter. So these are two organic bananas. And some people don't like bananas so you could use other fruits but I found that banana keeps it together. It's smooth, it's creamy, it's delicious. And then what you want to do is you want to mix it really well. And it even looks like a cake mix except this is one you make at home so it's fresh, delicious and nutritious. And you know what's in it. And in just a few minutes it will become like a dough batter. And I like to add some goji berries to make it into a super food. So I soak the goji berries in some water so that they're plump. And now I'm just simply mashing it up with a fork and hand mixing it. And you can see it's starting to look like a batter but it's flour-less, vegan, gluten-free. And these recipes are so much fun because they only take a few minutes, a few recipes and a few ingredients. And so you can do it all on the raw and you can be the star in the kitchen with my raw star recipes. Now that it's all blended by hand with a fork then you want to put it into a cake like pan. And then you can add more coconut, more goji berries. And that's the thing with raw it's so abundant there's always more of what you want. So here's the cake. And yes you can have your cake and eat it too. So I'm going to put some coconut on there, some more goji berries. And some more cinnamon. And that took what? Five minutes or less. Now I like to see anyone make a cake faster then that. And I'm just adding some cinnamon and you are all done and ready to serve. I'm chef Bryan Au and I just taught you my raw organic vegan cake mix recipe. Now instead of buying in a store in a box I recreated this so you can make it at home. I hope you really enjoyed it. And as you can see it only took a few minutes to make, super nutritious is now super delicious.
