Want to start by wishing you a lovely Friday and weekend that we have in front of us 🙂 It was a long time since I baked anything with carrots and I really wanted to do a yummy carrot recipe for you, so what a chock. I have a really delicious gluten-free carrot cake recipe for you today 🙂
This amazing gluten-free carrot cake recipe is kind of addicting I must say 🙂 It’s a very soft and moist cake and the best thing is that it isn’t just gluten-free, it also is less sugar in this cake. I wanted to make something for you who may not want or need a huge sugar rush and are looking for something less sweet and that is both gluten-free and with less sugar. So, this carrot cake is perfect!
Put eggs and stevia sugar in a deep baking bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.
Add oil, the grated carrots, lemon peel and lemon juice. Whisk it together a few seconds.
At last add baking powder, vanilla powder, cinnamon and almond flour and whisk it until you have a nice dark cake batter.
Pour the batter into a pan in the size about 31x20 cm. Add the chocolate buttons on top and put the pan in middle of the oven. Let the cake bake for 40-45 minutes. NOTE: The time depends on the oven you use!
Let the cake cool down on the counter and then cut the cake into smaller pieces (or bigger if you want :))
NOTE: If you want to make it with even less sugar, you can skip the chocolate buttons or you can choose sugar-free chocolate instead.
As you may have already figured it out, I still want to mention that you can’t compare this gluten-free and less sugar carrot cake with a classic carrot cake. This is a little different from when you use all-purpose flour and sugar. But these small carrot cake pieces are very addicting 🙂
My youngest daughter wanted the one piece after another and as a mother, it doesn’t feel too bad to give your child a cake like this in the middle of the week. Cause it’s less sugar in them!
Can you believe it, we are 1 day from the Easter holiday and I really looking forward to having a nice family Easter.
This is another holiday where we like to eat…right?! 🙂 We want to make yummy Easter food and eat a lovely dessert. If you are still figuring out what to make for dessert or for a little treat, cause we need something good to serve with the coffee or that the children can enjoy, I may have a great resource for you. I’ve been looking and found some amazing recipes from other food bloggers, so happy that many wanted to contribute to this Easter dessert roundup and give inspiration for amazing ideas for Easter desserts!
We are battling with cold in our family right now, I’ve stayed home from work with Melody for a couple of days cause doing the weekend she really was getting cold with runny eyes, noise and she got this terrible cough. So, it hasn’t been an option to let her be in daycare so I’ve been home with her.
Anyways, I hope your week has been good so far and today I have a yummy recipe for you, Apple Cake.
This is a favorite apple cake in our family and the lovely smell this cake brings into the kitchen is amazing. Just love when it smells homebaked ♥
Lubricate a round cake pan with removable edges. I have used a round foil pan in a size of 22 cm in diameter for this recipe, which I only lubricated and it works just as well.
Whisk the butter and sugar with an electric mixer, then add egg and baking soda and whisk to a smooth fine batter.
Add flour and milk. TIP: Do not use a cup measurements for the flour as you dig in the bag, pour the flour into a larger sized bowl. The flour becomes too packed and can lead to a dry cake. Do not stir too much, only until the flour and milk are mixed with the batter.
Pour the batter into the cake pan. Spread the batter slowly evenly into the pan.
Cut the apples into thinner slices.
Take a deep bowl. Mix the sugar and cinnamon into the bowl and add apple slices to the mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Allow the apples to suck the mixture properly and make sure all the apples are well-sourced with sugar and cinnamon.
Then put the slices over the batter and squeeze them a bit, sprinkle some extra sugar and cinnamon on the cake before you put it in the oven.
Bake the cake at 175 Celsius degrees (347 F) in the lower part of the oven for about 45
