This is a very simple raw carrot cake, just enough to hush a sweet tooth
simple carrot cake
1 cup shredded coconut, processed into a rough flour
2 carrots, peeled and chopped into chunks
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
ginger (fresh or powder)
raisins or currants(optional)
chopped walnuts or pecans(optional)
Process all of the following, except for the raisins and walnuts, until a kind of coarse wet dough forms(adjusting the sweetener as needed). Then stir in the raisin and chopped walnuts. Press this dough into a spring form pan, let firm up a bit in the fridge, and garnish with sliced apples.
You may choose to add an icing to top this cake, i tried an experimental icing that didn't quite work out. But a maple pine nut frosting, or a simple agave lemon glaze could be just the ticket. Have fun with it !
