Leftover pulp from Carrot juice
Updated: Apr 12
Are you juicing, and don`t know wha to do with the pulp. Well, this cake freaking delicious anytime of the week. So after I made carrot juce, I wanted to use the pulp. I often make pancakes from all of the pulp, but this is just pulp from carrots. It turned out so tasty, with many spices.
This has a base of shredded carrots, and than using from the pulp after juicing.
700 gram organic carrots (about 275 gram carrot pulp)
150 gram melted organic butter
150 gram gluten free flour (ex. teff- and rice flour)
2 tbsp maple sirup
1 dl coconut sugar
3 tsp flaxseeds + 6 tsp water
5 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cardamom
2 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
* Turn your oven, 180 °C. Use over and under heat. * Start by juicing the carrots. Cut of the stalk and wash the them.
Add them in a juicer and use the remaining pulp for the batter. This will leave you with about 275 gram of pulp Add the pulp into your baking bowl.
* Melt the butter
* Make flax seed eggs. (You could probably instead use organic eggs if you prefer) For one egg you use 1 tsp of flax seeds Grind the seeds in a coffee grinder
Mix the grinded flax seeds and the water Let it sit for one minute or so.
* Now it`s time to mix all the ingredients into a thick batter.
* Use a small springform. Just cover the bottom with a baking sheet and pour the dough in.
* Bake the cake in the middle of the oven for 45 minutes
Let it cool down before adding the topping.
1 can of coconut cream (just the solid part) ½ lime 1 dl powder sugar (I used SukrinMelis)
The can of coconut cream need to be stored in the fridge for one day prior of using it. Light cream will not work, so use the normal one.
Only use the top part, aka the heavy cream will be about 200 gram. To easily get the water out first, just flip the can around and use a tin opener. Pour out the water and scrape out the heavy cream to use. The coconut water you can use in a smoothie or something.
Whip the heavy coconut cream on full speed for a couple of minutes.
Add lime juice
Add icing sugar and whip for a creamy consistency,
Pour the topping on the cake and garnish with some shredded carrot.
