If you live in Southern California, you likely already own a raw food cookbook — or at least you've thought of buying one. For raw-curious MNN readers planning to eat healthier in 2011, here are a couple video "cooking" tutorials for raw cakes so you can enjoy sweet desserts without feeling guilty.
The first: Bryan Au's Raw Organic 2-Minute Chocolate Cake. The author of "Raw Star Recipes" shows you how to enjoy chocolate cake on the quick — though to be honest, I think the cake will take longer than two minutes to make. Of course, I don't know how fast you can slice strawberries or mash up bananas with a fork.... In any case, I plan to try this recipe in 2011, minus the goji berries, since I'm not a fan of those. (Are you?)
