  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • *Note: If you are a nut lover, add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts in with flour before adding to moist ingredients.


  1. For Cake: Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.
  2. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat eggs and sugar until very well combined.
  3. Add the Coconut Milk and mix together well.
  4. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.
  5. Add carrots to flour mixture and toss lightly.
  6. Add liquid ingredients to flour mixture. Mix on a low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened. Increase to a medium speed and beat for 30 seconds more or until well mixed.
  7. Pour into pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a cake tester inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean. Cake should spring back when lightly pressed.
  8. Cool in pans on a rack for 10 minutes. Unmold onto a cake rack and cool completely.
  9. For Frosting: In a small mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
  10. Add the sugar, Coconut Milk and vanilla. Beat until the icing is a smooth spreadable consistency. Spread frosting over cooled cake. Enjoy!
