My Name Is Spice

Raw carrot cakes with cashew citrus icing served with fruit tea

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

I don't have much to compare these with cos i don't have a history of eating cakes and muffins; but i reckon these were fairly awesome!

The ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg contributed a little magic and alot of complexity.

Don't you just adore spices?


The icing is made with soaked cashews and loads of freshly squeezed orange juice (and some rind), plus coconut oil and maple syrup (so refined-sugar free).


I have served the mini carrot cakes with a fruit tea and some really nice quality dark chocolate. Go figure!
