  1. I like the idea of this recipe, thank you, but there are some gaps that I think would be helpful to fill. First, what sized spring form pan did you use please?

    You don\’t mention soaking the cashews in your instructions, but you say to take the soaked cashes to blend, how long are they soaked for please? There is much starch in cashews, so they thicken things nicely, too little moisture may make it hard to blend, right? So are they well hydrated ahead of time or just soaked if you don\’t have a high power blender?

    You include a vanilla bean in your ingredient list, but you don\’t show where it should go, or in what form you use it. Are you adding only the seeds? are you soaking it in the fluid to impart the flavor?

    It looks like possibly, English is not your first language per the wording of your instructions…I\’d be happy to help if you\’d like to make things a bit more clear to your readers. I am a vegan – gluten-free cook and baker.

    Thank you for your recipe idea, I will use it as a baseline to experiment and see what I can come up with…Blessings!
