Course Dessert


For the cake (liquid)

  • 3 tbsp butter softened
  • 1 squirt liquid sweetener to personal taste
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened soy milk
  • 2 whole eggs room temperature

For the cake (dry)

  • 9 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp all spice essential, don't skip!
  • 150 grams finely grated carrot around 1/2 cup or 1 small carrot
  • 15 whole walnuts finely chopped

For the frosting

  • 2 tbsp butter softened
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 squirt liquid sweetener to personal taste


  • Preheat your oven to 180 °C (around 350 °F).
  • Prepare your ingredients by grating the carrot and chopping the walnuts.
  • Line a small (12 cm) round cake tin for baking. Use a small piece of baking paper, dipped in softened butter and smear it around the inside of the tin.
  • In a large bowl mix the butter and artificial sweetener together.
  • Add the remaining liquid ingredients; the vanilla essence, soy milk and eggs.
  • Beat with a mixer until well-combined and there are no lumps of butter remaining.
  • Next add the dry ingredients; almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and all spice. Mix until a smooth batter is formed.
  • Fold in the grated carrot and chopped walnuts until integrated.
  • Transfer half of the mixture to the prepared cake tin and bake for around 20-22 minutes. To test when ready, insert a toothpick in the center of the cake. When it comes out clean your cake is done!
  • Allow the cake to completely cool, before removing from the baking tin. Wash your cake tin and repeat the baking process with the remaining half of the cake batter.
  • Once you have two cakes completely cooled, prepare your frosting. Beat the frosting ingredients; butter, cream cheese, vanilla and sweetener until well combined and smooth.
  • See the post for detailed frosting suggestions. Add a layer or frosting between your cakes, cover the whole cake in a thin layer and put in the refrigerator. After 5 minutes, remove from the fridge and use the remaining frosting to create a smooth layer.
  • Decorate with chopped walnuts and enjoy!
