Kashmiri Garam Masala Carrot Cake

Sometimes change is good—and in this case the flavor is what’s new. Fans have deemed this the best carrot cake they’ve ever had! Serving a favorite dessert that is known and loved, like carrot cake, with a new twist is the joy of exploring with spice. Kashmiri Garam Masala lends roasted spice flavors of pepper, cardamom, and clove to this classic preparation, and the coconut oil adds wonderful moisture and a velvety texture.

    Great recipe. I modified it a little by eliminating sugar, substituting almond flour for all-purpose flower, and adding dried cranberries (about 20), crushed pineapples (about 2 to 3 ounces) and 1 1/2 tablespoons of bourbon-infused vanilla extract. Baking time is almost doubled due to the moisture (I didn’t have a tea cloth to squeeze out the moisture)
