Spiced Fruit Sheet Cake:
  • 1/2 cup Soy Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons Vegan Butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 6 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons Pastry Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon each of Ground Cloves, Allspice, Nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup Dried Fruit Mixture (with Mixed Peel and Glace Cherries)
    Rum Soaking Syrup
  • 3/4 cup Hot Water
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Rum, Optional but recommended!
    Vegan Mascarpone Filling:
  • 1 3/4 cup Raw Cashews (no need to soak)
  • 1/3 cup Agave Nectar
  • 1/3 cup Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • Seeds of 1 Vanilla Bean Pod
  • 1 cup Soy Milk
    For Chocolate Filling:
  • Half of Vegan Mascarpone
  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
  • Cocoa Powder


  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius/350F. Grease and line a 8×6 inch cookie sheet with baking paper. Set aside.
  2. Whisk Soy Milk and Apple Cider Vinegar in a bowl set aside for 5 minutes to curdle. Sieve the Pastry Flour, Baking Powder, Baking Soda and Spices into a bowl. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, whisk Vegan Butter, Sugar and Salt till light and fluffy, about a minute. Whisk in the Vanilla Extract.
  4. Alternate whisking in the Soy Milk mixture and dry ingredients, starting with 1/3 of the dry and ending with the last third of the dry mixture.
  5. Add dried fruit and mix thoroughly.
  6. Spread mixture out onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until cooked through. It’s okay if you over bake it slightly, it doesn’t make a difference.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare Soaking Syrup. Mix Matcha Powder, Hot Water and Sugar together till the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.
  8. To prepare the Vegan Mascarpone Filling, in a high speed blender, combine Cashews, Agave, Coconut Oil, Salt, Vanilla and Soy Milk. Blend thoroughly until smooth and silky.
  9. Divide mixture into half. For Chocolate Cream, blend half of Mascarpone mixture with Cocoa Powder till smooth.
  10. To assemble, have ready a tiramisu dish or individual ramekins/glasses. Cut a piece of sheet cake to fit the bottom of your ramekin or glass. Dip in Soaking Syrup for just a second or two and place into the bottom of your vessel.
  11. Top with a layer of Vanilla Cream and dust with Cocoa Powder. At this point, freeze for 10 minutes.
  12. Once out of the freezer, top with a layer of Chocolate Cream. Freeze for 10 minutes.
  13. Repeat process once more – Soaked Cake, Vanilla Cream and Chocolate Cream – freezing cream layers for 10 minutes before continuing.
  14. Once complete, dust the tops of you Tiramisu with Cocoa Powder and leave in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours to firm up before eating.
