How To Make Yummy Carrot Cake

Whether you need a tasty dessert to serve at a party or are simply looking for something new to try in the kitchen, creamy carrot cake is one of the most popular recipes. This recipe is moist and rich with a swirl of cream cheese and vanilla. It’s simple, easy, and no-fuss. The recipe calls for walnuts, but you can use any combination of nuts, raisins, or dried fruits. 


How To Make Yummy Carrot Cake


Ingredients

-2 cups finely grated carrots (3 medium)

-1 ¼ cups erythritol or granulated sugar substitute 

(6 oz) erythritol works best because it dissolves better in liquids than other sugars. 

-1 cup almond flour (4 oz) 

-3 medium eggs 

-1 tsp baking soda 

-3 Tbsp coconut flour (2 oz) 

-½ cup butter or ghee, melted and cooled down a bit 

-1 tsp vanilla extract 

-½ cup chopped walnuts, optional



Instructions

Place the baking soda and two eggs in a mixing bowl and beat until they are very well combined. Add the almond flour and ¾ of erythritol and mix again until a soft dough is formed. Add the remaining erythritol and mix until it disappears.

For this carrot cake recipe, I used coconut flour for the top crust, but you can use almond flour or any kind of flour you want. If you want to use ground almonds, I highly recommend using blanched almonds that have been soaked in water for 8 to 10 hours. The soaking time will make the Almonds softer and easier to grind as well as remove the bitterness that might otherwise be present in ground almonds.

In a different bowl, combine the grated carrots (I used 3 medium carrots), butter or ghee, vanilla extract, and nuts (optional) together with a spatula.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Take two-thirds of the batter (it should be sticky) and place it in a muffin tin lined with muffin papers. Press the batter out with your fingers or a spoon until it forms even layers for each of the 12 muffin papers.

Place chopped walnuts between two-thirds of the carrot layers on top of the batter. Place another layer of batter on top and then add more chopped walnuts at random locations. Sprinkle coconut flour on top and push it down with your fingers so that all patty layers are covered by coconut flour.
