  • 60 g of crushed walnuts;
  • 80 g of sugar;
  • 2-3 pinches of salt;
  • 250 g of peeled and grated carrots;
  • 120 ml of soya milk (feel free to use any other plant-based milk);
  • 100 ml of vegetable oil (or coconut oil)*;
  • 2 tsp. (12 ml) of CBD oil or CBD tincture*.

Frosting:

  • 100 g of vegan butter of your choice;
  • 3-4 tbsp. (53-71 g) of sugar powder;

  • 4 tbsp. (71 ml) of low-fat oat or coconut milk.

Step 2 — Directions:

To get the best results, simply follow these directions.

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 °C.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, yeast, sugar and salt).
  3. Mix the milk with vegetable (or coconut) oil of your choice in a separate bowl. Add CBD oil or tincture, mix everything, and gently add them to the dry ingredients using a spatula.
  4. Finally, add the grated carrots and nuts. Mix everything thoroughly.
  5. Line the mould with butter or parchment paper if necessary. Pour the mixture into the mould and bake for about one hour.
  6. While the cake is baking, let’s not lose a second and make the frosting. Add all the frosting ingredients together and mix with a hand blender until they are creamy. Leave the cream in the refrigerator so that it gets a nice firm texture.
  7. Let the cake cool for 10-20 minutes before removing it from the mould.
  8. Decorate the top of the cake with the frosting, nuts and grated carrot and … bon appétit!

The end result is a delicious CBD-infused vegan carrot cake that is the perfect solution for your tea or coffee dessert with friends or family.
