INSTRUCTIONS

1

Preheat oven to 350° F. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom. Fold in grated carrots, walnut pieces, and coconut flakes, and stir to combine.

2

In a mixer with the paddle attachment, cream butter and brown sugar together until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes. Add in apple cider vinegar, and mix until just combined. This step can also be done by hand if you don’t have a mixer.

3

With the mixer on low, or in a bowl with a rubber spatula, add in dry ingredients until just combined, and no dry spots are visible. Do not overmix.

4

Pour batter into the two cake pans (or if you only have one, bake one half of the batter, let cool, remove, then bake the other half.)

5

Bake at 350° F for 40-45 mins, or until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

6

While the cake is baking, make the frosting. In the mixer or in a large bowl with a whisk, beat butter until creamy. Add the cream cheese, powdered sugar, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract, and mix until creamy and well-combined. If the frosting is too thick, use a rubber spatula to mix and add a tablespoon of water to thin out the frosting to desired consistency.

7

Use a rubber spatula or an offset spatula, to spread approximately ⅓ of frosting between layers, ⅓ of frosting on the top layer of the cake, and ⅓ around the side of the cake. Decorate with coconut flakes.
