Happy Birthday, Amelia!

Ingredients

Cake:

  • 2 cups garbanzo flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup water

Frosting:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 tablespoon honey

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. I used this silicone bone mold from Amazon and didn't bother greasing it. Alternatively, you can use a 7-inch round cake pan; but it'd advise buttering it and then coating it in flour.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the garbanzo flour and baking soda. Add the shredded carrots, almond butter, honey, olive oil, eggs and water.
  • Spoon the batter into the cake pan and smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Transfer to the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes, and until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Turn the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting, add the cream cheese and honey to a medium bowl. Using a hand-mixer, whisk the two together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  • Spoon the frosting onto the cake's top and smooth it out using a butter knife or offset spatula. Happy Birthday!
