For the cream cheese frosting

ingredients

  • 175 g dairy-free 'cream cheese'
  • 1 cup icing sugar

Method

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven for 175 C degree. Prepare a rectangular baking tray with grease paper.

  • Step 2

    Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and spices in a bowl.

  • Step 3

    n a separate bowl, add the olive oil banana and sugar. Use a hand blender to make into a smooth batter. Add the carrots, nuts and remaining ingredients then gently mix with the flour.

  • Step 4

    Pour the mixture into the tray and bake for 40 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Prepare the glaze by combining the dairy-free cream cheese with the icing sugar. (It's more like a runny frosting, but less sugary) Chill it for a few hours to set.

  • Step 6

    Once your cake is thoroughly cooled, pour the glazing over and sprinkle some chopped nuts on the top.
