  3. This cake looks so delicious and the recipe is easy to cook!
    I use that base for cheesecake too, sometimes I don’t even bake it, just mix the crumbs and butter and keep in the fridge to chill for a couple of hours. I’m in love with the colors of the layers.

    1. Yes, I either use crumbs and some melted butter or bake different kind of bases. Once I did it with cereal crumble and some butter, tasted interesting but still good. Clad to hear you like the look of the cake, Perla! 🙂

    1. This was very delicious and fresh cake! Using non-dairy vanilla sauce was new to me but this ended up tasting really good and you wouldn’t sure notice that it’s non-dairy.

  4. Yum! Thank you so much for sharing this . I am dairy free so always on the lookout for new dairy free recipes!

  5. Wow Nora this is incredible! I’m lactose intolerant so I never have luck with cakes 🙁 I’m trying this, this week! Thanks for the awesome recipe xx
