Father's Day Carrot Cake

By Lauren Duffell, RHN

As someone who is not able to eat regular desserts (they make me very sick!), I often offer to bring the dessert to family events so that I know that I can eat it too!

This is one of the recipes that I love. It makes a super moist cake and it’s packed with nutritious ingredients… Ssshhh! Don’t tell! This beauty is gluten free, dairy free, white sugar free.... but amazingly moist and delicious!

What You'll Need:

Dry:

  • 2 cups of rice flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 heaping tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp powdered ginger
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Mix all dry together in a bowl.

 

Veggies and fruit:

  • 1.5 cups of grated carrot
  • 1.5 cups of grated sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup of pineapple diced small

 

Wet:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • Mix all dry together in a bowl

Instructions:

  1. Set oven to 350F. Grease a 9' round cake pan (I used a spring form).
  2. Beat wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  3. Slowly mix in dry ingredients.
  4. Mix in fruit and veggies.
  5. Bake at 350F for 40-45 mins. Let cake cool completely before opening spring form and icing.

Icing:

(I made a cashew cream cheese icing)

  • 2 cups of soaked (at least 4 hrs) and rinsed raw cashews
  • 4 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon
  • The coconut cream from a can of coconut (chill in the fridge so the cream separates easily)... it's about a half cup
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • Put all icing ingredients in a high powered blender until super smooth. Chill icing in the fridge a bit to firm it up.

Don't forget to be creative with your decor!

In walks Katherine (pre-COVID-19). She is a 49-year-old woman coming into my office to try and figure out “what’s wrong with her”. She thinks hormones must have something to do with it because she does not even feel like herself anymore. Her main complaints are sleep problems, mood changes, and weight gain.
