Instructions for preparing the carrot cake with the bianco di puro high-speed blender
If you want to bake the cake, preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
For the cake base, soak the dates in hot water for about 10 minutes.
Wash them and put them in the blender jug.
Cut the carrots into rough pieces and add them to the blender jug along with all the other base ingredients. Mix the contents into a solid mass. Small pieces of nuts and carrots can be left here and there; they give the cake a nice crunch. Line a cake tin with baking paper and distribute the mixture evenly.
Follow Option 1 or Option 2.
For the topping, soak the cashews in hot water for about 10 minutes. Wash them off and mix them with the remaining ingredients to form a creamy mixture. Spread the topping over the baked or raw cake base. If you want, you can sprinkle some cinnamon on top. Place the cake in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before eating so that the topping cream can thicken.
