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!
- 4 eggs
- 1.2 cups stevia sugar
- 0.8 cup rapeseed oil
- 200 grams grated carrots
- 1 lemon peel
- 0.5 lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla powder
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1.2 cups almond flour
- 0.2 cup light chocolate buttons
Turn on the oven to 180 Celcius (356 F)
Prepare the grated carrots.
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!
