Instructions
  1. Preheat conventional oven at 150 degrees (almond flour burns easily so this recipe needs to be cooked slowly).
  2. Cook the pumpkin by boiling it or use previously roasted punpkin from a left over meal. I like to make extra pumkin with my meals for this purpose in mind.
  3. Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl with hand held mixer on low. (do not over mix – just enough to ensure all ingredients is mixed and combined well)
  4. Line your bread tin with oven paper and pour ingredients in. Place in oven and cook for one hour (ensureing not to burn the top).
  5. When remove the bread from the oven, be sure to take it out of the tin immediately to allow it to cool by lifting the loaf out with the paper sides. This will avoid a darker crust because burnt nut flour is bitter. Let it sit and cook on the cooling rack with the paper still surrounding it. When it has cooled you may wrap the loaf in the baking paper and and place in a pyrex dish with a sealed lid to store in the fridge.
Recipe Notes

Suggestions

Nice with some avocado or nut butter.  You can make thin slices and crisp them in a dehydrator which is great for homemade dips and  soup dunkers.  The bread is also great for dippity eggs.

Instructions
Cake mixture
  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius. (never cook recipes containing almond flour too high as it burns easily).
  2. Finely grate the carrots and place them in a small bowl. Pour the honey over the carrots and place them in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. Cover the dates with boiling water in a separate bowl and let them sit for 20 minutes also. When they are nice and soft, you can easily remove the pit inside.
  4. In a mixing bowl or thermomix - add eggs, carrot mixture, dates, vanilla extract, yoghurt, melted coconut oil and blend well until the mixture is runny.
  5. Add the remaining dry ingredients to the mixture and mix further until all combined into a thick paste.
  6. At the final stages, add the bicarbonate of soda to the top of the mixture and pour the 2 tablespoons of lemon juice on top. This will fiz at first. Turn the mixer on again to ensure that all final ingredinents are all blended well.
  7. Pour the mixture into bleach free baking cup cake holders linned within a 12 tin muffin tray and bake in a preheated oven at 175 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. You can also make a carrot cake with this mixture but you will need to adjust the cooking time. You do not want the mixture to be too runny. If it is, simply add a little more almond flour to accommodate.
Frosting
  1. Drip your yoghurt to thicken or make some creme fraiche for best results as this will make it thick and creamier.
  2. Combine butter (that has softened at room temperature) with yoghurt and mix well.
  3. Gradually add the honey followed by the lemon juice. You don't have to use all the lemon juice if you don't want to, pending on preferred taste.
