I made raw carrot cake last night smiling smiley

I would post the recipe on here but I am not 100% thrilled with it although my partner loved it.

I was supposed to use walnuts in the "cake" part but had hazelnuts and they are cheaper right now. It made it taste rather Lara-bar-esque, which is not that groovy to me. I used to be high on them and now am just meh.

The frosting was a combo of cashews and coconut oil. It's just okay, too.

I am looking for desserts that don't taste too nutty.

I've never made Raw Carrot Cake, but I've had some really tasty versions at Raw Food Potlucks. Here's a recipe from my Raw Food Recipe file for comparison...

Carrot Cake

1 c almonds (soaked)
¾ c dates (soaked)
1c carrot pulp
¾ c carrot juice
1 grated carrot
1 T ginger
1 T orange zest
1 T lemon zest
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
½ c raisins
½ c walnuts or dry shredded coconut
1 t lemon juice

First if you don’t have carrot juice and pulp, juice the carrots and get that part ready. Next put the almonds and dates in a food processor and grind fine, until it forms a ball. Put it in a bowl with the carrot juice, carrot pulp, spices, zests, lemon juice and grated carrot. Stir until thoroughly mixed. Add the raisins and walnuts or coconut. This is your carrot cake. Form a circle or square or shape of choice on the plate.

Icing

3/4c cashews (soaked)
2 dates (soaked)
1 orange (juiced)
1t orange zest
1-2T lemon juice
1/4 vanilla bean

Put all of these things in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Check to see if it tastes like heaven, if it does, move on. If it doesn’t add more dates, more lemon, more cashews, whatever. When it’s yummy, dump it on the cake. As for decoration use strawberries, raspberries, coconut, flowers, zest, spices you name it!

I made one once that turned out great, based on a mash up of Juliano's raw gourmet recipes. It went over well at the raw potluck I took it too.
I made another though that was not so wonderful. I don't know what I did wrong with that one :/.

In my book, the efforts of getting all of these ingredients and making the cake do not justify the end result.
Why not just eat the carrots or the or the...
