No Bake Carrot Cake

dessert

Carrot cake must be one of my favourite desserts. I love the unbaked version even more than the original because you can really taste the juicy sweet carrots and raisins. 



Recipe (serves 8)

For the cake:

  • 2 large carrots, grated
  • 1 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 8 medjool dates
  • 2/3 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp all spice (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Method:

  1. First, blend 1.5 carrot, 1 cup walnuts, the medjool dates, 1/3 cup raisins, the oatmeal, cinnamon, lemon zest, ginger, nutmeg, salt and all spice until a dough forms.
  2. Then, gently pulse in the rest of the carrot, walnuts and raisins. In this way, you have a kind of chunky carrot cake.
  3. Place in a baking pan with baking paper and place in the freezer.


Cashew tofu cream cheese:

  • 1.5 cup raw soaked cashews
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut butter or oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Method

  1. Blend all these ingredients together until smooth.
  2. Pour over the carrot cake and place back into the freezer.
  3. Before serving, let the cake thaw a bit.
