I originally posted this raw vegan carrot cake recipe in January of 2015. Since then, it’s become one of my most popular recipes. I hated the original photos, so I made the cake again and took new photos. You can view the original photos at the end of the post. This post includes some affiliate links. I love carrot cake but I would be mad at you if you served it to me on my birthday. It’s perfectly fine for an afternoon tea, but on my birthday I want chocolate. Don’t even get me started on ice cream cakes. I have opinions.
This week’s Yoga of Baking features a chocolate beet cake. Don’t be scared! Look how pretty it is? I’ve combined beets and chocolate together before in a smoothie. Beets are a divisive food. I happen to like them, but I know some people feel they taste like dirt. This cake does not taste like dirt but it did have a beet-y smell to it. If you are totally beet-adverse, you should probably skip this one.
