Raw banana passionfruit and fig cake with coconut sugar lemon frosting


Gee whizz, I haven't been here for a long time. I have some new recipes I am going to add over the next couple of weeks. Still love my raw food, it just makes you feel so good!!! 

I know this doesn't look gorgeous but it taste it!!! I just used a pyrex dish. If you use a spring form pan you can get it to look much better. I was in a hurry to get something nice done for morning tea..this is quick and easy.
