Add enough soya milk to cover the almonds by at least 1/2 inch. Blend until you have a pancake-like batter (slightly grainy, but without any large pieces).• Melt the margarine in a non-stick skillet or cast-iron pan. Stir in the almond paste and sugar. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the almond paste has lost most of its moisture. Turn off the heat and stir in the cardamom powder. Pour onto a plate or serving dish and set aside.• Heat the canola oil in a small saucepan. Add the pumpkin seeds and raisins and stir until the pumpkin seeds start to change colour. Pour over the almond paste.• For a festive presentation, scoop into small cupcake liners before serving. Makes 4 servings
