Gluten and Dairy Free Carrot & Sesame Cake

Hello everyone

This flavour combination maybe sounds a bit odd but let me tell you how it came about.  I was reading some food history (don’t ask) and it talked about how traditional items have been transformed into modern interpretations.

The carrot cake started life in Israel as a moist sticky sponge made with tahini and decorated with sesame seeds. Through the ages it transformed into a lighter sponge, lost the sesames and picked up some frosting.

I’ve tried to combine the two cakes to make this frosted carrot and sesame cake and I think it sounds a bit weird but tastes amazing.

Enjoy!
