Incredible Raw Carrot Cake

Dessert Lovers: This raw carrot cake is amazeballs! Every time I share it in social media it blows up, and I have received so many emails of joy and gratitude from happy carrot cake lovers. This raw carrot cake is vegan and gluten-free,

I got this raw carrot cake recipe from Emily von Euw’s book, Rawsome Vegan Baking.

This raw carrot cake with cashew cream is moist and incredibly delicious. You would never know it was raw and gluten-free. I could just lick the cashew cream!

Emily’s blog, This Rawsome Vegan Life has tons of delicious raw and vegan recipes with beautiful photography. The book contains so many delicious desserts that I didn’t know where to start when I got my copy of the book. We have been making Emily’s recipes for dinner parties, and they have all been given rave reviews.

Emily shares recipes for basic raw staples like coconut cream, chocolate, date paste, and hot cacao that she uses in the recipes, some notes of resources and equipment, and allergy substitutions, and then it’s all about the recipes!

Some of my favorite recipes are: triple layer ice-cream cake, double decadence chocolate silk cake with hazelnut crust, almond joys, chocolate nut butter cups, caramel mocha bars, strawberry cheesecake pops, go-nuts donuts, and cashew coffee vanilla creme cake.

But, I had to share the raw carrot cake that Emily is famous for, and with good reason. It is amazing, and not to be missed.

cashew frosting:



  1. To make the frosting, blend all ingredients in your high-speed blender until smooth, adding as little water as possible. Taste it. Put in a bowl and set aside. 
  2. To make the cake, cut the carrots into small chunks. Then throw all the ingredients (including the carrots) in your food processor and pulse until it's all in really small pieces and sticks together. 
  3. Assembly: Press half the cake mix into the bottom of an adjustable spring-form pan, mine was about 6 inches. Then spread on about 1/3 of the frosting. Put it in the freezer until the layer of frosting is hard. Then press on the rest of the cake mix. I let it set in the fridge overnight, then frosted the whole thing, but you can do it right away if you want. Take it out of the pan and use the remaining frosting, cover with whatever garnishes you like.
