I’m always on the look out for nut free, dairy free desserts as I have two mini friends with allergies…the look on their faces when they realise they can eat a dessert is priceless. I developed the recipe for this raw cheesecake as a birthday cake during the summer, it’s about time everyone gets chance to have a taste!
