RAW CARROT CAKE (RV)

Raw carrot cake is probably the easiest cake to prepare in the world, and, on top of that, it is possible the tastiest too!

This is the perfect cake to prepare for Easter or any other celebration as it is a household favourite, and is especially popular with kids.

The best thing about this cake (apart from the flavour, of course) is its consistency, beautifully moist and soft due to the combination of shredded coconut, carrots, dates and dried mulberries.

Is your mouth is watering as you read the above description? Then you need to go and make this cake ASAP!

You can make this cake using leftover pulp from carrot juice and almond milk, so my advice is to make both in the morning as part of your breakfast, and then you have the leftovers as a perfect excuse to make this scrumptious cake.
