RAW CARROT CAKE

Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined-Sugar Free

FROSTING

  • 1 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

CAKE

  • 2 cups finely shredded carrots
  • 2 cups packed (pitted) dates
  • 2 1/2 cups raw walnuts
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup sultanas

METHOD

  1. Soak cashews in hot water for 30 minutes, then rinse and drain. Add to a high speed blender, with the coconut cream, lemon juice, maple syrup, and vanilla. Blend on high until creamy and smooth. Place in the fridge to chill while making the cake.
  2. Using a hand-held grater or the grater attachment on your food processor, grate the carrots and set aside.
  3. Add the pitted dates and blend until a ball forms. (If you are using regular dates (not medjool), it can help to soak them in boiling water for 10 minutes to soften). Remove the blended dates from food processor and set aside.
  4. Add in the walnuts, vanilla, salt, and spices into food processor and blend into a meal. Then add dates back in, along with shredded carrots, and pulse until a loose dough forms and the carrots are just incorporated. Be careful not to over-blend. You want it to be a pliable dough.
  5. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add coconut flour and sultanas and gently stir together with a spoon. Hand mixing this in ensures you can keep a lighter more “cake-like” texture. Once well combined, set aside.
  6. Place baking paper inside a 7-9 inch springform pan.
  7. Spoon in cake mixture and press down evenly with a spoon or spatula.
  8. Pour the frosting on top and smooth with spatula. Freeze for around 3 hours or until the frosting is semi-firm to the touch.
  9. Garnish with walnuts and carrot shavings - or any desired toppings.
  10. To serve, make sure the cake has had at least 30 minutes to thaw out a bit.
  11. The cake will last in the fridge for up to 1 week or 1 month in the freezer.
