    Vegan Tahini Cake

    Νηστίσιμο κέικ με ταχίνι, καρύδια, σταφίδες & σοκολάτα, χωρίς λάδι. Ότι πρέπει για την μεγάλη Εβδομάδα

    Here I am finally, after a long time, with a fasting vegan tahini cake with walnuts, raisins and chocolate I haven’t had the time to share a blog post since last November.  I don’t really know how the time passed. It’s not that I didn’t make new recipes, though. Those of you who follow me on social networks see the recipes and articles I am preparing for AB Vassilopoulos, on the site #allazoumesinithies (site in greek). And various other that I post on Facebook and Instagram.

    This cake is a kind of quarantine cake. And that’s because these days when you are run out of e.g. wholemeal flour you use whatever you have in hand, since we limit our visits to the grocery store as much as possible due to Covid-19. That’s what I do. So today’s cake did not come out very healthy, but the next time I make it I will use wholemeal flour and honey (see this post on how to substitute sugar for honey). I didn’t want to delay the post, because it’s really very tasty! And it’s ideal for those fasting during the Holy Week.

    It is also very convenient because you use the same measuring cup for all ingredients. And you should! Depending on how big your cup is, the bigger the cake will be.

    You can also make it with one kind of raisins, or no icing at all. It is generally easy to adjust depending on the ingredients you have in hand.
