Carrot Cake

Gluten-free, dairy-free (optional)

Absolutely everyone will like a delicious and tender carrot cake with coconut cream, prunes/raisins, and walnuts. This past year, a grain-free version, was a huge hit.

I certainly could not pass by and here it is – the perfect carrot cake! Lush biscuit with the addition of nuts in a layer, and all this splendor under a coat of coconut cream!

Carrot cake is a new discovery for me. This is by far my favorite of all my recipes.

If you are allergic to nuts, then you cannot add them to the dough, and even kids will not be able to rightfully appreciate such an additive, so if you are making this cake for kids, then it is better to exclude nuts.

That’s it, I won’t write anything else! Let’s make carrot cake.
