Gin and passion fruit spiked cashew cake

Ok, here we go – I’m not going to write a long spiel about this because if you’ve come here, you probably just want the recipe, and already know how bloody good vegan cheesecake is (on a side note I prefer cashew cake – it just isn’t cheesecake, it’s so much more interesting). The base…
