How to Make It

1. Step
In a large bowl, add the cashews and enough hot water to cover them. Let soak for at least 1 hour.
2. Step
Rinse and drain the cashews, then add them to a food processor or blender. Add the coconut cream, powdered sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, lemon juice, vanilla extract, apple cider vinegar, and salt. Blend until completely smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.
3. Step
Transfer the cashew frosting to a bowl and refrigerate while you bake the cake.
4. Step
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease 3 separate 8-inch (20 cm) round cake pans and set aside.
5. Step
In a large bowl, add the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Whisk to combine.
6. Step
In a separate large bowl, add the almond milk, coconut oil, applesauce, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and apple cider vinegar. Whisk to combine.
7. Step
In two batches, add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, folding with a spatula until combined. Some clumps are okay.
8. Step
Add the grated carrots and raisins and fold them in.
9. Step
Divide the batter evenly between the 3 pre-greased cake pans and bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely.
10. Step
Remove the cashew frosting from the fridge and mix it up well.
11. Step
Choose which cake will be your bottom layer and cover evenly with about ⅓ of the cashew frosting. Top with the second layer, frosting evenly again. Add the final layer and frost the top of the cake generously
12. Step
Grate a carrot over the top of the frosting and sprinkle with chopped walnuts for garnish.
13. Step
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
14. Step
Enjoy!
