Homemade Carrot Cake


Hey everyone, today it’s recipe day, and it’s a delicious one: carrot cake!

A few days ago some friends told me: “you’re all about greens and veggies” and I thought it was so funny.

Usually, I think about myself as “the girl who tries to be healthy, but also indulges in tasty, not-that-healthy food every now and then during her gastronomic adventures”. I found interesting the impression that others have of me, this different look. At that moment I automatically felt like the healthiest person in the world.

Well, I guess my friends are right to a certain extent. I always try to eat my veggies and, even when baking, I always get adventurous: beetroot pancakes, zucchini overnight oats, spinach cakes. In short, a panoply of endless experiences!

Today, to open up your appetite and continue my veggies, greens, and healthiness journey, I’m bringing you a great cake recipe.

It’s been a while since I tried out new cake recipes. For some reason, that I haven’t understood yet, lately my cakes have been a disaster.

Maybe it’s the universe sending me a signal! But since I’m not the kind of person who easily gives up, I keep trying and trying. And this time it didn’t disappoint!

I’ve been craving carrot cake for a few weeks now. I’ve always related carrot cake to childhood, don’t ask me why. Actually, I do not even remember eating carrot cake as a child, but maybe that was what other kids of my age used to eat and it stuck.

And I’ve been talking and talking, nonstop, about carrot cake for a while. But finally, I decided to open my kitchen door and embrace this adventure of transforming carrots into a cake.

Surprisingly, it was so delightful: tasty, fluffy and the texture resembled those cakes I eat with English-style tea or with hot chocolate.

This tasty cake didn’t even last half a day here at home! And I can say this one is healthy because I used alternative ingredients. Let’s check out the recipe?

Carrot Cake:

  1. Start by preheating the oven to 180º.
  2. Peel the carrots and grind them in a food processor.
  3. Place the spelt flour, sugar, and ground carrots into a bowl. Mix all the ingredients well.
  4. Add the melted coconut oil, as well as the eggs, to the mixture and fold all the ingredients.
  5. Add the baking powder and fold again.
  6. Grease a cake mold and pour the cake batter.
  7. Place the cake mold in the oven, already preheated, and let it bake for about 50 min.
  8. Take it out of the oven and it is ready to serve.

Suggestion: If you don’t have a food processor, simply grate the carrots. You can make English tea to drink along with the carrot cake, its wonderful.
