Cannabis Carrot Cake


Preheat oven to 180°C.

In one bowl, mix the grated carrots and walnuts, then add cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

In the other mixing bowl add your dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Stir to combine, then make a little well in the middle.

Add the eggs to the well of your dry ingredients and fold through until mixed, then gradually stir in your melted cannabutter or cannaoil.

Now mix using your electric whisk until everything is smooth. You’ll notice that the colour lightens, and the texture has visibly changed.

Fold in the carrot and nut mixture, and stir until smooth.

Pour into your baking tin and cook for around 60 minutes. To check if your cake is cooked through, poke it with a toothpick—if it comes out clean, the cake is ready.

Allow the carrot cake to cool in the pan for ten minutes, then turn out to cool completely.

While the cake is cooling, cut the cream cheese into chunks and add into a bowl with the cannabutter or cannaoil.

Sieve in the icing sugar, and using your electric whisk beat on high until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Slowly add the orange juice into your mixture, and beat on high until the mixture is fluffy and smooth.

Once the cake has cooled down, apply the icing and sprinkle with orange zest.

Refrigerate until the icing has set.

Eat, enjoy, and feel the buzz. For variations, you can soak your carrot and walnut mixture in your favourite liqueur to give it a different kind of kick.

For those who aren’t fans of oranges, you can substitute them for lemons or limes just as easily for a slightly more tart taste.
