Ingredients
  

Cake

  • 1 cup sorghum or gluten-free oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 12 large eggs free-range, organic.
  • 1 cup coconut oil melted, organic.
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 3 cups carrots grated, organic.
  • 1 cup zante currants

Topping

  • 2 - 1/2 cups fruit of choice sliced, organic. (I used mangoes and blueberries, but other berries or sliced apples or pears would also work well.)
  • 6 tbsp vegan “butter”
  • 4 tsp maple syrup organic
  • Cinnamon to taste

Instructions
 

Cake

  • Combine gluten-free flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon in food processor.
  • Pulse in eggs, coconut oil, and honey.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  • Remove blade from food processor and switch to the grater. Grate 10-12 medium-size carrots; this should give you about 3 cups of grated carrot.
  • Stir grated carrots and currants into flour, egg mixture by hand.
  • Grease two 7-inch springform pans liberally with coconut oil and dust with gluten-free flour.
  • Transfer 1/2 of batter into each of the prepared pans.
  • Bake at 350° F (176 degrees Celsius) for 45-60 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, place on cooling rack, and cool for 1 hour before removing from springform pans.

Topping

  • Place ½ cup sliced fruit, maple syrup and vegan butter in glass 1 cup measuring cup.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well to combine fruit, which will dissolve to make a sauce.
  • Pour over top of bottom cake layer.
  • Put the top cake layer on over sauce.
  • Repeat sauce instructions to make second batch for the top of cake. Pour over top of cake, then top with remaining, uncooked sliced fruit.
