I am slowly going through some of my bookmarked recipes and starting to tick them off.
Today, I share with you this Raw Vegan Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream. This Raw Vegan Carrot Cake comes from Lorraine Pascale.
I have to be honest, I don't really do celebrity chefs, so when I first saw Lorraine Pascale on British TV. the first thought that came to me was, here we go again another model turned celebrity chef, but her approach was really different from all those domestic goddess wannabees. Lorraine Pascale gained popularity without the gimmicks. She really did win me over on her first cookery show and her down to earth honest approach, I have also come to have a much deeper respect for her as a person too.
Anyway, this Raw Vegan Carrot Cake was the first that I had bookmarked from her Eating Well Made Easy from Lorraine Pascale. The only change I have made to the recipe was the use of hazelnut, the original recipe uses walnuts and I did not have to pop this in the freezer, my fridge was plenty chilled.
The recipe makes a generous cake, I took a lot of this Vegan Carrot Cake into work and gave around tasters. Everyone who had a piece was stunned first at the fact that it was completely raw, secondly that it was very much like baked carrot cake and lastly how Delicious it was, some even wanting a second piece. The only person who was not that crazy about it was my husband. He said. I will eat this, but raw cakes just don't excite me. Oh well, you cannot win everyone over.
