Yes - it is possible to have tasty, moist cake on a gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free diet.
300g grated carrots
300g ground almonds
1-2 tsp cinnamon (helps to regulate blood sugar levels)
½ tsp vanilla powder
½ tsp grated lemon rind
honey according to taste- I usually use a small cup of our home made honey.
How to make it:
Separate the eggs, beat the eggwhites till stiff. Mix all other ingredients, at the end fold in the eggwhites gently.
Bake at 190 degrees for 45 minutes- Voilà !
Decorate according to taste or occasion. The cake in the picture was for Easter so I made it with purple carrots for extra effect. But you can also use normal orange ones or white ones look good too.
For the decoration I made home-made marzipan with ground almonds and honey. It is basically a mixture of ground almonds and honey- keep adding honey to the ground almonds until you reach the desired texture, then cool for about an hour before processing it. For extra colour effect I use flavonoid rich antioxidant fruit powders- the purple was Acai and pink raspberry.
Enjoy- We certainly did…
