Raw cakes are nutritious cakes made without wheat, dairy, eggs or refined sugars. Our range of raw cakes is entirely vegan and gluten-free, and features a shortlist of wholefood ingredients such as nuts, seeds, coconut and cacao products, fresh and dried fruits and natural sweeteners such as maple syrup.
Raw cakes get their colours from nutritious, natural ingredients such as beetroot, berries, turmeric, carrots, spirulina or cacao powder, making them richer in nutrients. Raw cakes are not cooked but chilled in the fridge, and they are also referred to as ‘no-bake’ cakes. The nuts and seeds in raw cakes are a wonderful source of heart-healthy fats, nutrients, protein and fibre. Fibre and protein help us feel fuller for longer and promote good gut health, helping our tummies work best. The dried fruits also provide us with fibre, as well as with carbohydrates which we need for energy to fuel our bodies and our brains.
Chris’ Kitchen raw cakes are not baked and they are not as spongy as traditional cakes. The texture is creamier and denser, more similar to that of cheesecakes.
Because our raw cakes are not baked, the flavours, colours and textures remain intact, and so do the nutrients and the taste. Because the colour of the ingredients remains unchanged, our raw cakes come in a variety of vibrant colours and flavours, from lemon strawberry cheesecakes or lamington to pomegranate cheesecakes and snickers slices.
This vibrancy makes them beautiful to plate and decorate, and very pleasing to the eye, adding to the enjoyment of eating them. Chris’ Kitchen raw cakes are a great alternative for coeliacs, vegans and vegetarians, as well as people who want to include more plant-based foods in their diets.
In order to construct the perfect cakes, we go through our fair share of trial and error. We develop product concepts, experiment with ingredient and flavour combinations, taste and adjust, and once market approved we make them available for purchase. Our goal is to equally create wholesome plant-based products that will nourish you, as well as products that are ridiculously delicious.
To give you the best quality, at Chris’ Kitchen we ensure that:
- We use the finest ingredients
- We play with innovative flavour combinations
- Taste delivers on our promise
- And that presentation is exciting
All Chris’ Kitchen raw cakes need to be refrigerated and most will keep very well in the fridge for up to 7 days and in the freezer for up to 4 months.
While quality and taste always come first, we believe presentation is equally important. We all eat with our eyes first and so we should! Food is a celebration best enjoyed with all our senses. When a product is visually appealing, it’s more appetising and builds anticipation of the senses.
At Chris’ Kitchen, we offer you food that we are proud to call our own. We hope you treasure that every bite is actually healthy.
At Chris’ Kitchen, we recommend at least 5 days notice to book a cake, especially if you require anything custom. We can also accommodate a 48-hour notice for our standard cakes.
All cakes come in fully recyclable paper-based packaging, with paper-based stickers and flyers that use vegetable dyes.
We offer delivery for our larger cakes such as wedding cakes and catering events, within 15km of our production kitchen. This is already included in the price.
We hope you enjoy our raw cakes! If you eat them, be sure to snap a pic and tag it #chriskitchen on Instagram or Facebook, and tag us @chriskitchen.com.au. Do it! I love seeing what you enjoy the most.
