Carrot Apricot Tofu Cake

By 11:23 , , , , , ,

 
Carrot Apricot Tofu Cake with a 'Cream Cheeze Frosting' topped with rich black tahini, frozen blueberries, frozen raspberries, hemp hearts and shredded coconut.

It's my first time baking a carrot cake of some sort! It turned out not bad ☺ Moist, slightly fluffy. Perhaps it could use a pinch of salt. This is based on my usual tofu cake recipe.

The 'Cream Cheeze Frosting' was interesting.. kinda more like a pudding XD The mix of ingredients sounds weird but I find that it tastes good ;) And psyllium husk is amazing :O

  1. Mix the flour, baking powder and spices together.
  2. Add in the tofu, carrot shreds, vanilla essence, sweetener and dried apricots. Stir until well combined.
