This cake is simple to make and will fill your kitchen with an amazing waft of spice as it bakes. While carrot is most commonly used as an ingredient in cakes, sweet potatoes lend a more subtle flavour, while pairing beautifully with cinnamon and allspice. Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A, an essential fat-soluble vitamin that also acts as a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin A helps to fight inflammation as well as helping you to maintain healthy, clear skin.
This cake is great served just on its own, or, if you aren't dairy-free, try serving it with a low-fat cream cheese frosting lightly sweetened with some rice malt syrup. This cake is dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and also suitable for anyone with a wheat sensitivity. You can also substitute the sweet potatoes with either carrots or pumpkin if you prefer.
