Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

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 🙂

Gluten Free Carrot Cake

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!

Gluten-Free Carrot Cake
Author: Jeanette - Take a Sweet Bite
  • 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
  1. Turn on the oven to 180 Celcius (356 F)

  2. Prepare the grated carrots.

  3. Put eggs and stevia sugar in a deep baking bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for about 2 minutes.

  4. Add oil, the grated carrots, lemon peel and lemon juice. Whisk it together a few seconds.

  5. At last add baking powder, vanilla powder, cinnamon and almond flour and whisk it until you have a nice dark cake batter. 

  6. 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!

  7. Let the cake cool down on the counter and then cut the cake into smaller pieces (or bigger if you want :))

Recipe Notes

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.

 Gluten-free recipe

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!


Gluten-free & delicious carrot cake

    These look so delicious. Since they have carrots in them they automatically become guilt free. Right?

    Carrot cake is one of my favourites but so often its slathered in tonnes of cream cheese frosting. This looks lush.

      Wanted to try a healthy choice, so I skipped the frosting. But pretty sure you can make a delicious less sugar frosting as well for the cake 🙂

      You could try to freeze them. I haven’t tried that yet, but I’ve had them in the fridge 🙂
