  • Summary

    I have a huge soft spot for anything that even remotely tastes and looks like a carrot cake. And I have a couple of carrot cake recipes online but had never really made a gluten free version. Since I make all the recipes for the Dutch paleo magazine I wanted to create a version that would be paleo. And voila, here it is. The cake is super moist and totally delicious. Even Tom – not a big fan of gluten free things – thought it was the best carrot cake ever.

    Ingredients

    • 200 g almond flour
    • 25 g tapioca flour
    • ½ tsp baking soda
    • ½ tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp cinnamon
    • ½ tsp cardamom
    • ¼ tsp nutmeg
    • 3 large eggs (at room temperature)
    • 250 ml coconut milk
    • 1 tbsp lemon juice
    • 95 ml coconut oil (melted and cooled to room temperature)
    • 140 g coconut blossom sugar (or regular sugar)
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 170 g carrot (grated)
    • 50 g walnuts (chopped)
    • 50 g coconut flakes
    • 75 g cashew nuts (soaked)
    • 3 tbsp coconut milk
    • 3 tbsp maple syrup
    • juice of half an orange
    • ½ tsp vanilla extract
