Golden Spiced Carrot Cake
CARROT CAKE INGREDIENTS:
1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line an 8x8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
2. In a medium sized bowl, add almond flour, Golden Superfood Bliss, spices, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined without any lumps.
3. In another large bowl, cream the butter and coconut sugar together. Add the eggs, maple syrup, and almond milk and mix well.
4. Gently fold the almond flour mixture into the wet ingredients a little at a time until thoroughly combined. Then fold in the shredded carrots and pecans.
5. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan and bake for about 35–40 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Remove the carrot cake from the oven and let it cool on the countertop for 30 minutes before frosting.
7. To make the frosting, add the Greek yogurt into a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add powdered coconut sugar and vanilla extract and mix until it reaches a creamy consistency.
8. Once the carrot cake is cooled, spread evenly with the frosting. Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the frosting. Using a serrated knife, slice the cake into 12 squares and serve.
