UPDATED RECIPE: Paleo carrot cake made with sweet potatoes. Topped with creamy lemon frosting made from white sweet potatoes. A healthy carrot cake recipe that is gluten free and dairy free. Moist and flavorful carrot cake perfect for spring!
Well, you guys asked for it, so here it is: paleo carrot cake made with sweet potatoes…
And sweet potato frosting. 🙂
We are fully committed to the sweet potatoes frosting and all.
Sweet potatoes are in the cake, the frosting, and all over my kitchen.
This layer cake is sandwiched with creamy lemon frosting made from white sweet potatoes, because you haven’t heart the word potatoes enough, right?
I have to say, this is not your average carrot cake!
But it’s a health lovers carrot cake for sure. 🙂
If you don’t like sweet potatoes, then there is a chance, this isn’t the cake for you…
But then again, maybe you will!
Because all my friends and family loved it- even my dad who hates sweet potatoes!
I wouldn’t know, because I happen to love sweet potatoes.
Try it and let me know what you think, please. 🙂
sweet potatoes in cake?
When you guys asked me to make a carrot cake made with sweet potatoes, like in my blackout chocolate cake…
I have to say, I had a bit of a brain stretch trying to convert that recipe into carrot cake.
Okay, so we ended up throwing out that recipe all together and went with this, but it is drawing from all the same main highlights of that chocolate sweet potato cake.
Some highlights include:
- It’s moist.
- Made with all the veg!
- Light + fluffy cake (all the heart eyes).
- Covered in a whipped vanilla lemon frosting.
- And the cake itself if loaded with spice and carrots- you could also add raisins, which would be bomb!
- Even all my wheat eating/non-paleo friends and family devoured this one!
So, if you aren’t into moist carrot cake and smooth lemon frosting…
Then stay tuned, because I am planning on brining a more traditional carrot cake your way (for all you non-health-cake-lovers).
This cake it dedicated to all those who can’t really eat too many things because of allergies, and to those who maybe have a hard time finding recipes that don’t include gluten or refined sugar.
I feel you- been there and done that (but not anymore!).
Please enjoy this healthy spin-off on carrot cake!
P.S. This is the size cake pan I used in this recipe.
