  • 2 carrots, peeled and finely grated (about 200g)
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and finely grated
  • 115g pecans, finely ground (use a food processor)
  • 85g desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp lucuma or maca powder
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150g raisins
  • 60g dried apple, soaked for 15 minutes
  • 60g pitted dates, soaked for 15 minutes
  • 1 whole orange, peeled


  1. Grease and line a 20cm (8 inch) springform cake tin. Alternatively, you can place the mixture into individual ramekins or rings.
  2. Place the apple and carrots in a large bowl with the pecan nuts, coconut, lucuma or maca, cacao, cinnamon, salt and raisins.
  3. Drain the dried apple and dates and place in a blender or food processor with the orange. Process to form a smooth paste – this will help bind the mixture together. Add the paste to the nut mixture and combine thoroughly.
  4. Place the mixture (you may need to do this in batches) in a food processor and pulse to form a wet dough. Do not over-mix – you still want some texture.
  5. Press the mixture into the cake tin or ramekins or rings and chill for 2-3 hours to firm up before serving.
  6. Cut into slices and top with yoghurt if wished.
