Guilt-less Desserts & Treats for your Family
Podcast: Carrot Cake with Lemon Cream Icing
This Carrot Cake with Lemon Cream Icing is not only delicious but is also healthy! It contains vegetables and fruits, no oils and is sweetened only by dates. But the best part… the icing! Lemon Cream Icing; coconut cream is there nothing you can’t do?! It easily matches the tastes in the carrot cake complimenting the spices and date flavour. This is a great cake, without the burden of guilt or excuses!
Most traditional vegetable cake recipes are high in calories due to the high amount of oil, processed sugar and flours used. Most carrot cakes also have a delicious cream cheese frosting, which unfortunately contains almost twice as many calories as coconut cream. So while the choice of carrot cake might seem the better option maybe the double chocolate Tim Tam cheesecake wasn’t so bad after all!
