Keto Gluten-Free Almond Carrot Cake Aunt Annette: I use this to make the carrot cake and the punkin bread cake. I use one can of pumpkin in place of the carrots. I reduce the pie spice and add cloves and cinnamon, just a little. Add a little extra sweetener. Usually I taste the batter. Same buttercream frosting except i put toasted pecans on the pumpkin bread cake and toasted coconut on the carrot cake. You can cook the cakes in the instant pot, too.
