Following our trials and tribulations as we attempt to remove all grains, many starchy vegetables and most sugars from our diet while maintaining our love of good food! We strive to make all of our recipes GAPS and/or SCD compliant. Note: We didn't know about "Grain-Free Gourmet" when we chose our name. We are not affiliated with those good folks.

Cream Cheese Icing

This makes a pourable, thick icing that actually stays put pretty well. It is quite sweet, and would probably make a thicker frosting without so much honey, but I was cooking for a non-GAPS crowd, and I wanted to appeal to their tastes.


1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup kefir cream cheese
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbs. vanilla extract
Juice of half a lemon


Boil honey for about five minutes and allow to cool completely. Beat butter until creamy. Beat in cream cheese. Slowly pour in honey while mixer is running. The honey will make the whole thing runny. Add vanilla and lemon juice, and blend in. When well mixed, chill for at least an hour. Pour over cake, and allow some to run down the sides like a glaze.


  1. Yum! We added crushed pinapple to our cream cheese frosting when I was growing up. I want to try. This is so special to me to have a carrot cake recipe. My mom made me a carrot cake every birthday my whole life until Gaps..
    It will be nice to have that again!

  2. Sounds yummy! I am so tired of our cocnut oil frosting recipe, looking forward to trying this next time (maybe Ostara?)
