Raw Carrot Cake

Jump To Recipe
This recipe reminds me of the show on Tastemade called Raw, Vegan, Not Gross. Have you seen it? I love it and the person behind it, Laura Miller, is so cute and funny.
This recipe is raw, kinda vegan if you’re okay with honey, and certainly not gross. It’s also perfect to make in the summer when you don’t want to go anywhere near the oven.
I’ve made this recipe using both the dehydrator as in the image below, or just left to set in the fridge as in the cupcake image. Both were equally good.
 
Recipe adapted from The Raw Chef.

 

Raw Carrot Cake

Ingredients:
For the raw carrot cake:
  • 3/4 cup soft dates
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (or water)
  • 2 cups carrots, finely grated
  • 1 cup walnuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut
For the frosting:
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked for 3 hours
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp orange zest (optional)

Instructions:
To make the cake:
  1. Pour some boiling water on the dates in a small bow, and let soften. Drain then mash to make a paste.
  2. Thoroughly mix the remaining cake ingredients with the date paste in a large bowl.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a lined springform cake pan or muffin pan and place in the fridge to set while you make the frosting. When filling muffin liners, leave some space for the frosting.
To make the frosting:
  1. Place all the frosting ingredients in a high speed blender and blend until smooth.
  2. You have two options here – either place the frosting in the fridge until it is thick enough to spread on to your cake, or pour onto the cake and let set all together in the fridge.

Garnish the cake with a dusting of cinnamon or nutmeg. If you have a dehydrator, shape the mixture into mini cakes or 1 large cake and dehydrate at 115 degrees F for 8-12 hours before adding the frosting.
