Raw Tropical Carrot Cake

Approx Time to Make: 30 mins

I used to have a recipe for Raw Carrot Cake bars, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So… I’ve made my own tropical fruit, ‘Carrot Cake’ recipe.

It’s rather tasty if I say so myself; I’ve just had a slice with a cuppa.

This recipe is not only full of Raw goodness, but Gluten Free, Low Sugar & of course, Vegan.

Recipe for the Creme Filling & Topping:

πŸ₯•1Β½ cups raw Cashews (soaked in hot water 1 hour & drained dry)
πŸ₯•Β½ cup Plant Yogurt
πŸ₯•1/4 cup melted Coconut Oil
πŸ₯•1 small Lime zest
πŸ₯•Pinch sea salt

*I didn’t sweeten mine as it’s not my taste with the sweeter base, but you could always add agave or maple syrup or a healthier sugar alternative.

Blend all ingredients & then put in the fridge to chill while making the ‘cake’.

Recipe for the Carrot ‘Cake’:

πŸ₯•3 large Carrots finely grated
πŸ₯•1 Star fruit or similar texture
πŸ₯•Β½ cup of Mango
πŸ₯•1Β½ cup pitted Medjool dates
πŸ₯•2 cups Oat flour *
πŸ₯•2 teaspoons Cinnamon
πŸ₯•1 teaspoon Ginger
πŸ₯•Β½ teaspoon Nutmeg
πŸ₯•1 tablespoon of Agave or Maple syrup
πŸ₯•2 teaspoons Lime juice
πŸ₯•Β½ cup Sultanas

* Put normal oats in blender to make oat flour

Instructions:

1) Blend the wet ingredients to a paste (except the raisins) * I left some of my carrot grated for texture & added it later with the raisins (see below).

2) Add the blended wet ingredients to the oat flour, mix well & then add the sultanas (* & grated carrot if you left some whole).

3) Leave a while, for the oatmeal to absorb the wet fruit, but if it still looks too wet, add more oatmeal flour. Meanwhile …

4) Line a round sponge tin with oven paper & fill with half the mixture.

5) Top the half of carrot cake with a thin layer of creme filling.

6) Put the cake tin in the freezer to chill & set before adding the second layer of the cake.
Note: I skipped this & ended up with blended filling & cake, so this is an important step!

7) Add second layer of carrot cake mixture.

8) Then top the ‘cake’ with the remaining creme filling & decorate. I used seeds & nuts & some artificial daisies).

As this is a Raw cake, make sure you keep it in the fridge.

Eat & enjoy!
