Method

 

Blend the almonds and brazil nuts in your food processor or blender to form a rough flour. Add the rest of the dry ingredients, pulse to combine, then set aside.

Roughly chop the figs, apricots and dates in your food processor or blender (they will be quite sticky), then add the remaining wet ingredients and pulse to just combine.

Add the dry ingredient mix back into the food processor or blender and pulse to combine. You want to keep the chunks and the sultanas/raisins/currants whole so be careful not to over blend.

Pour the mixture into a tin with the base lined with baking paper and put in the fridge while you make the icing.

White Chocolate Icing: Blend together all icing ingredients until silky smooth – there should be no lumps whatsoever. You may need to scrape down your blender a few times in between to get a super smooth result. Pour icing onto the cake and put back into the fridge overnight to set.

In the morning, decorate cake with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and mint leaves.
