Instructions

Cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F and grease 3 8" round cake pans with butter or vegetable oil.
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the eggs, oil, erythritol, and vanilla together.
  • Add the almond flour, ground flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until well incorporated.
  • Use a rubber spatula to fold in the carrots and pecans.
  • Pour even amounts of batter into each of the prepared pans.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. You'll know the cake is done once the center is set and the top is golden brown.
  • Allow cake to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then remove the cakes from the pan, and allow them to cool on a wire rack completely.

Frosting:

  • Combine frosting ingredients in a medium bowl until smooth.
  • Once the cake has cooled completely, frost it. Sprinkle pecans on top, and enjoy!

Notes

*For best texture, use a fine grained almond flour!
