Then, remove the carrots from the water and mince them with a food processor or similar. Once done add the sugar, coconut and margarine that should be at room temperature. This should turn into a very intense, orange and homogeneous cream or paste.


In a container that is large enough, place the base of the cake (a ready made purchase) and dampen with milk to have it soften. Do not over do it or the results will be bad, just a few spoonfuls will do.


Subsequently, we cover the pastry base of cake with the carrot paste you have prepared and then place another pastry base on the cake. Repeat this action making layers. End with a layer of the carrot mixture.


Finally, if you like, you can sprinkle a little grated coconut on top as decoration and then all you will have to do is put your carrot cake in the fridge to make the consistency ideal. Enjoy your desert!


You can also add a layer of easy and vegan icing on top of your carrot cake. Leave the dates and cashew nuts to soak for 2 hours. After this time has passed, drain and dry well, add the vanilla essence and blend in the food processor until you get a creamy texture. Now you can spread it on the top layer of the cake!
