Description

Bursting with flavor, this cake includes the unique flavor combinations of carrot, pistachio, and coconut. This recipe is made with ground almonds instead of a flour for a unique texture and denseness that only almond flour can provide. Grated coconut and chopped pistachios add a level of texture and crunch to this moist cake. Cinnamon adds a burst of spice to each bite. Accompanied by a rose-scented cream, this cake is a decadent treat that only gets better as time progresses.

Ingredients

3 large eggs
200 grams sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
200 grams ground almonds
100 grams grated coconut
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
140 grams butter (softened)
2 carrots (peeled and grated)
100 grams pistachios (crushed plus a few more for garnish)
powdered sugar (for garnish)
300 milliliters heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
3 drops rose water

Directions

1Grease a 22 centimeter round cake pan and line with aluminum foil. Set aside.
2Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
3In a large bowl, beat together the eggs with the sugar and vanilla extract.
4Incorporate the ground almonds, grated coconut, and cinnamon.
5Add in the butter and mix well.
6Then mix in the carrots and pistachios.
7Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake 1 hour. Check at 40 minutes to make sure the top is not browning too quickly. If that happens, grease a piece of aluminum foil and place it grease-side down on top of the cake.
8Let the cake sit at least 4 hours before eating it.
9Separately, whisk the heavy whipping cream into soft peaks. Add the powdered sugar and rose water and continue whisking into stiff peaks.
10Serve the cake garnished with powdered sugar and pistachios on top and the rose-scented cream on the side.
