DIY Recipe: Cannabis Infused Carrot Cake

Marie Antoinette famously said, “Let them eat cake!” and who doesn’t love a good cake? If you’re a medical cannabis patient, you can make a run-of-the-day cake even better with THC extract – why not make your marijuana consumption delicious! We suggest using Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) for this recipe, a high-intensity oil ideal for medical patients. It can also carry a strong weed taste, making a great pairing with a sweet cake recipe.

RSO carries a lot of therapeutic benefits, such as pain relief and relaxation, and is often used by cannabis patients dealing with anxiety, depression, or high blood pressure – its high potency helps many alleviate symptoms of many conditions. In addition, choosing an Indica strain, RSO is an excellent option for sleep-inducing effects meant for healing. RSO is often a black oil and has a tar-like consistency. Typically, the product comes in a syringe and is relatively easy to use. A cake recipe is full of great flavors and is a perfect way to balance any unpleasant weedy herbal notes.

So, if popping down to the store and buying some carrots sounds easy-peasy and you’re in the mood for something tasty – make our carrot cake with homemade cream cheese frosting; it’s a fun way to consume your marijuana and pass the time. Ready for some cake? Let’s go!

How to Make it

Yield: One cake will serve ten slices. This recipe used a dosage of 500 mg (Approximately 50 mg of THC per slice). Be sure to mix cake batter well!

Cake Ingredients:

  • 500 milligrams of Full-Spectrum RSO (about a ½ gram syringe of Rick Simpson Oil)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon cloves
  • 2 cups grated carrots (about four large carrots)

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 16 ounces full-fat block cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • Pinch of salt, for taste

Infused-Cannabis Cake Prep:

  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Place chopped pecans on the baking sheet covered in parchment paper and bake for 6 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • Turn oven up to 350F.
  • Grease two 9-inch cake pans, line with parchment paper, and grease again. (The parchment paper helps the cakes release from the pans easily.)
  • Warm vegetable oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add RSO oil. Gently heat the infusion until it’s warm enough to dissolve the RSO oil. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk granulated sugar, brown sugar, RSO-infused oil, applesauce, eggs, and vanilla in a large bowl until there are no sugar lumps.
  • Mix flour, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, salt, cloves, and cinnamon in another large bowl.
  • Slowly fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  • Fold the carrots and pecans into the mixture.
  • Pour the mixture evenly into the pans. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Test the center with a toothpick – make sure that the toothpick is clean and the cake is not gooey.
  • Let the cakes cool by placing them on a wire rack. The cakes need to be completely cool before frosting.

Frosting Prep:

  • Beat together butter and cream cheese using a mixer in a large bowl for about 2 minutes on medium-high speed until smooth.
  • Add the confectioner’s sugar, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract.
  • Start by beating the mixture on low for 20-30 seconds, then go to a higher speed and mix for 3 minutes until smooth.
  • Add more sugar if the frosting is running thin. You can add a small amount of milk if it is coming out too thick. Frosting should be soft but not runny.

Layer and Frost:

  • Using a large serrated knife, cut off the top of each cake to make a flat surface. Place one cake layer on a plate.
  • Cover with frosting.
  • Repeat for the second layer. Using the rest of the frosting, cover the top and sides of the cake. Be sure to smooth it out.
  • Add pecans on top and all over the sides.
  • Chill the cake in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. This helps the cake hold together.
