Method

45 min
 

Beat oil and sugar, till thick, then beat in the coconut milk.

Add the grated carrots, nuts, flax meal, coconut and orange rind – mix so that it resembles a thick batter.

Sift dry ingredients into mixture and mix well, before adding spices and orange juice and once again mix to ensure ingredients are well combined.

Pour into well-greased and lined baking pans.

Bake at 180 for 45minutes-remove and allow to cool.

The cake can be iced with a mixture of vegan cream cheese and icing sugar and topped with more chopped nuts – I just dusted icing sugar and sprinkled some desiccated coconut.
