Raw Food Day 64 - Lemon Poppy Seed Cake

From raw gourmet chef Josephine Lee from Medford, Oregon. Her email:

So Lemony and the frosting so creamy!
1 1/2 c ground/grated jicama
1 Granny Smith apple pealed & ground
2 c. almonds soaked/dehydrated ground fine
4 T golden flax ground fine
1/4 c agave
1 tsp vanilla
lemon juice and zest of 1 lemon
1/2 c poppy seeds.
Mix all Ingredients and form in any shape you want;
I made a 5 1/2 inch round dish lined with saran wrap. Then topped the first layer with Frosting. Then topped the 2nd layer/round. Flip out and place on a plate and frost the whole cake (top & sides)
1 c OMEGA NUTRITION coconut oil (it does not smell/taste coconuty) The one I used is just like Crisco! Beat/Whip this with beaters!
Add 1/4 c agave juice
1/2 lemon IF YOU LIKE MORE LEMON DO juice of 1 and or zest.
Whip again. Spread quickly as it starts to melt a little.Sprinkle Poppy Seeds on sides or designs if you make a different shape.Top with Lemon zest curls or slices.Place in Ref for an hour or so. Serve at room temperature!
