And this is so simple and easy to make. For this layer cake, for this cake, I doubled the amounts of the ingredients and I use two springform cake pan like this.

 

First I whisk the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients separately. Then I mix it together. Divide the batter into two springform cake pan greased and lined with parchment paper. Bake for 35 / 40 minutes. Meanwhile, you can prepare the coconut butter frosting.

For assembling the cake you will need a cake leveler like this one. Once cool, level off any domed toms with the cake leveler. If you don’t have one, you can use a large serrated knife. Then you need to cut the two cakes in half horizontally.

Once the cakes are chilled, the frosting will set enough that you’ll be able to cut into it cleanly with a warm knife. The texture of the carrot cake is absolutely moist and tender and the coconut butter frosting is perfectly light and fluffy.

Even a strong-willed soul won’t be able to resist a second slice.

Instructions
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F / 180ºC and grease two 8 inches / 20 cm round cake pans very well. Line the pans with parchment paper and grease the paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, sweeteners and eggs. Stir in the carrots.
  3. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients into the large bowl and stir until well blended.
  4. Pour batter into the cake pans. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until the cakes are golden on the edges and firm to the touch in the middle.
  5. Remove and let cool completely in the pans, then flip out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Remove the parchment from the layers if it comes out with them.
  6. Once cool, level off any domed toms with a large serrated knife or cake leveler and cut the two cakes in half, horizontally.
Coconut Butter Frosting
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
Chocolate Ganache
  1. Pour the coconut milk into a medium pot and heat it until it is almost but not quite boiling.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stand for 2 minutes, then stir until the chocolate is fully melted into the milk.
  3. Whisk until smooth and glossy.
To assemble
  1. Fix the first layer to a cake board with a small amount of coconut buttercream.
  2. Fill a piping bag with coconut buttercream and then pip a line around the edge of the first layer.
  3. Fill with 2-3 tablespoons of chocolate ganache.
  4. Repeat with the second and third layers and then finish with your top layer.
  5. Cover the cake with a thin layer of coconut buttercream and then chill for 30 minutes or until firm.
  6. Pour the chocolate ganache over the cake.
Recipe Notes

If you’re not using the ganache straight away, store it in a jar in the fridge for up to two weeks. When you’re ready to serve it, gently warm in a pot or microwave to soften.
