What Does Flourless Carrot Cake Taste Like?
  1. Chocolate Flavor: The primary flavor comes from the Rainforest Dark Vegan Cacao Powder, which imparts a rich and intense chocolate flavor. This will be the dominant taste in the cake.
  2. Carrot: The grated carrots add a natural sweetness and a mild earthy flavor to the cake. They contribute some moisture, making the cake tender and juicy.
  3. Oats: Ground oat flakes provide a nutty and slightly oaty flavor, adding a bit of texture and a wholesome taste to the cake.
  4. Sweetness: The sweetness in the cake comes from the sweetener you choose to use. If you opt for sugar, it will be sweet like a traditional cake. If you use a sugar substitute, the sweetness may have a slightly different taste profile, most likely less sweet.
  5. Leavening Agent: The leavening agent (baking powder) helps the cake rise and gives it a light, airy texture.
  6. Additional Flavors: The optional toppings of Organic Dark Chocolate with coconut palm sugar and berries offer extra layers of flavor. The dark chocolate and coconut palm sugar bring sweetness and a hint of molasses flavor, while the berries contribute fruity notes.
