  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a 8" square baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, mince sweet potato until it reaches a fine rice-like consistency. Then add rest of ingredients (except raisins and carrot). Blend for about 1 minute until smooth. Then stir in grated carrot and raisins.
  3. Pour batter into 8" square cake pan lined with parchment paper and bake on 350F for about 70 minutes until golden on top. You will know it is finished cooking when a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  4. Peel and cut sweet potato for the frosting. Place in a small saucepan with about 1-2" water and cover with a lid. Steam for about 5-10 minutes until soft when poked with a fork.
  5. Add steamed sweet potato and rest of ingredients for frosting to food processor and puree for 3-5 minutes until completely smooth. Optional: after pureed, press frosting through a strainer to remove any lumps of remaining lemon zest flakes for a totally smooth result. Chill frosting in freezer in a large metal bowl for about 15+ minutes or until it reaches buttercream frosting consistency and is cooled down.
  6. Frost cake as desired and top with chopped pecans (optional, but delicious).

  1. I tweaked the recipe and this is the UPDATED RECIPE: Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of three seven inch cake pans with parchment paper and grease the sides with coconut oil.
  2. Mince sweet potatoes for cake in a food processor, until they reach fine rice consistency- this will be the flour base for the recipe. In a bowl or stand mixer combine all ingredients for cake batter, except the grated carrots until smooth. Then stir in grated carrots (and optional raisins).
  3. Divide cake batter between three seven inch cake pans and bake on 350F for about 60 minutes until golden on top. Tip: You will know the cake is finished baking when a toothpick when inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool before frosting.
  4. For the frosting: Peel and slice sweet potatoes into rounds and steam in a large saucepan with about 2-3 inches water on high for 5-10 minutes until soft. Then drain hot water.
  5. Add steamed sweet potatoes and all other ingredients for frosting in a food processor or high speed blender and puree for about five minutes until completely smooth.
  6. Chill frosting in freezer in a large metal bowl for about 15+ minutes or until it reaches buttercream frosting consistency and is cooled down. Stir frosting then put through a mesh strainer- to remove any flecks of lemon zest, so it's perfectly smooth.
  7. Assemble and frost cake, top with chopped pecans (optional) then serve. There will probably be leftover frosting. Store leftovers in fridge or freezer.

  • 1 cup sugar coconut sugar- for paleo

Caramel Instructions
  1. In a small sauce pan over medium/low heat combine all ingredients for the caramel. Stir and let it bubble for 2-4 minutes. Transfer to a small plate lined with parchment paper. Chill in freezer for 30 minutes until solid. Then cut into 1/4" squares.
  2. In a double boiler melt chocolate and butter (or palm shortening) together over low heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl combine, flour, sugar, eggs, and salt, then stir in the melted chocolate and butter. Pour batter into a 8" by 8" square baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  4. Sprinkle half the caramel squares over the brownie batter. Bake on 350F for 35-40 minutes (more or less for more cakey or gooey), then remove and cool for 15-20 minutes to solidify, they will crumble if you don't let them cool. (you can place brownies in the freezer for 10 minutes to speed up the cooling process).
  5. Sprinkle with remaining caramel squares and sea salt flakes, cut, and serve!
