Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 35 – 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup @grove.avocado.oil avocado oil
  • 1/2 cup raw brown sugar
  • 3 eggs/flax-seed eggs if vegan
  • 1/2 cup coconut yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup grated carrots

For the Frosting:

  • 1 cup cashews, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes
  • 100 grams coconut yogurt
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder

Method

Make the frosting. Drain cashews and place into a blender with yogurt, powdered sugar and cacao powder. Process until creamy and smooth. Transfer the frosting into a bowl, cover with a plastic wrap and set aside for later. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a baking tin.

In a bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and chocolate powder together. Set aside. In a separate bowl using a hand electric mixer beat oil and sugar together.

Beat in eggs and yogurt. Beat in vanilla, all spice and dry ingredients. Fold in carrots and walnuts, stir until combined. Spoon the mixture into the prepared baking tin and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes in the baking tin, before removing. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Frost the cooled cake and decorate with chopped walnuts.
