Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line 2 x 18cm cake tins.
  2. Mix together the flours, ground almonds, stevia, coconut, cinnamon, spice, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, oil, milk, pineapple juice and vanilla then pour into the dry ingredients along with the grated carrots and diced pineapple. Mix to combine.
  4. Divide the mixture between the two cake tins and spread out evenly. Bake for about 20­-25 minutes until risen, golden and firm to the touch, then leave to cool.
  5. Meanwhile beat together the cream cheese/yogurt, stevia, vanilla and cinnamon and chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour until needed.
  6. Once the cakes have cooled, spread a layer of the frosting on top of each then stack one cake on top of the other. Sprinkle over the coconut ­ then slice up and serve!
