How to Make It

Step 1    Make the Cake

Preheat the oven to 325º. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

Step 2    Make the Cake

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, blend the eggs, carrots, maple syrup, vanilla and coconut oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and thoroughly mix. Pour the batter into two greased 9-by-9-inch cake pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick pulled from the center comes out clean. Remove the pans from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 3    Meanwhile, Make the Frosting

In a large bowl or stand mixer, whip together the cream cheese, butter and confectioners’ sugar until smooth.

Step 4    Meanwhile, Make the Frosting

Once the cakes are completely cool, frost the cake with cream cheese frosting, garnish with walnuts and serve.

Review Body: This recipe is amazing and multiple non-gluten-free eaters asked for the recipe, but there's a few things to note: 1) 2 teaspoons of salt can't be right, can it? That seems kinda crazy. I cut it down to 1/2 teaspoon. 2) The coconut oil should be melted but not hot 3) Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the frosting or else it's too sweet. If you want enough frosting to cover the sides of the cake, you have to double the amount. And sorry, but there's no way this picture goes with this recipe. 2 9" pans give you wide, rather flat cakes, not tall, narrow cakes. It shows shredded coconut on top instead of walnuts and it has some kind of bruleed sides that are not explained in the recipe at all.

Review Body: Too much salt, i d put only 1 tsp, instead of baking soda, probably i d use next time baking powder and double the frosting. 9 inch pan only good for one. If you want tall and 2 layer cake use small pans. I used 9 inch pan, cut in half
