Gluten-Free Carrot Cake came about because I wanted to create something luscious for everyone to enjoy. This dish uses a combination of millet, buckwheat and tapioca. I use dates as the source of the sugar and used as little oil as possible yet retaining the moisture. This is a go-to recipe and is an improvement on the recipe on this blog made a few years ago.
