Ingredients

Cake:

225g Almond Flour

1 Serve Clean Lean Protein Just Natural

250g Carrots, grated

75g Sultanas

60ml Rum or Rum Essence mixed with Water

125g Erythritol

125ml Avocado Oil

3 Eggs

1 tsp Vanilla

½ tsp Nutmeg

1 Lemon, zested & juiced

¼ cup Pinenuts, toasted


Vegan Cream Cheese Icing:

240g Vegan Cream Cheese

Juice and rind of 1 Lemon

1 cup sugar free (xylitol) icing sugar


Method

Add the sultanas and rum (or rum essence in water) to a pot and bring to the boil. Simmer for a few minutes (this will cook off any alcohol and just leave you with the flavour and juicy plump sultanas). Put into a bowl to cool.

Mix the erythritol and oil.

Add the eggs and vanilla and continue to mix.

Add the almond flour, Clean Lean Protein, lemon juice and zest, and nutmeg. Mix to combine.

Add the carrots and sultanas and mix again.

Put into a greased cake tin and sprinkle with the toasted pinenuts.

Bake at 160C (fan forced) or 180c (conventional) for 30-40mins, keeping a close eye on the cake so it doesn’t burn.

Allow the cake to stand for at least 10mins.

This cake is just beautiful served on its own or with cream cheese icing.

Enjoy!


Vegan Cream Cheese Icing:

Soften the Vegan Cream Cheese (best done by leaving it out the fridge and letting it get to room temperature) and mash it with a fork.

 Add the lemon juice and rind and mix well. 

Add the sugar free icing sugar and mix with a handheld electric beater.
