For the dough, blend in a food processor
  • 2 cups walnuts,
  • 1 cup raisins.
Chop up
  • 10 dried apricots,

and blend for a few seconds (just until mixed) with the dough. Put the mix on a plate and, with your hands, form the pudding. In my family, this cake does not last very long!

Form a loaf, top up with icing made from macademias and raisins blended, for example, and serve. Keep refridgerated.

Or, form a loaf, cut up in slices and dehydrate in a dehydrator.
