  5. Once baked, leave out of the oven on a wire rack, do not remove from the cake tin.

For the filling:

  1. Drain the cashew nuts and place them in a food processor with all other ingredients. Blend until it has reached a smooth consistency.
  2. Transfer into a sauce pan. Bring to a boil while stirring from time to time. When it has reached a boiling point, turn down the heat and stir for another minute.
