My food proccessor doesn't chop up flax seeds, so I used raw oats instead. Tastes great! How weird, I did exactly what u did, repurpose! I doubled the cake and cut out some agave. I think this cake is the best raw thing I've ever made!

Wow is this one a winner! First time I dehydrated a raw "cake" and it makes a huge difference with mouth-feel and flavor. It really is nearly indistinguishable from a (denser) baked carrot cake. I doubled the recipe for the cake only and still had lots of frosting left, which I have no complaints about ;) About doubled the spices, too, and cut the agave a bit, but otherwise it's a perfect recipe. Thank you for sharing, Hannah! I am definitely going to make these into mini cupcakes at the next (omni) church potluck. I'll report back :)

I was so craving carrot cake so I just had this for lunch un-dehydratetd and it was yummy! I had to make a few substitutions so in case anyone else is out of something you can use almonds ground instead of the cashews in the cake, hemp seed instead of flaxseed and ginger root instead of powder. And I skipped the icing. My non-raw Mom took one bite and said "WOW." I ate half the recipe, though, so for my family this would serve 2!

well you could soak a few for dates in water and that would work just fine

I just realised the agave is in the icing in which case I will use dates instead. Sorry for not reading the recipe properly.

Hi Hannah,

This cake looks amazing. Do you think the agave makes a difference? I am trying to cut this from my diet but many recipes have it in the list. Perhaps I should up the dates? What do you think?

Thanks in advance.

This looks soooo good! One of my first experiences with making raw food recipes was something that was called carot cake, but it was a pile of carrot mush in a date/almond "crust" & wasn't anything like cake at all - this looks yummy, & no crust - since when did carrot cake have a crust? :D
