Carrot Cake


Certainly it’s not easy to make a carrot cake without eggs, but I was lucky, as the combination of these ingredients allowed me to get a cake colorful, fragrant and most of all …good!

200 gr of grated carrots
300 gr of all purpose flour
5,5 tablespoon of sunflower oil
170 ml of agave juice
1 tablespoon of malt syrup to spread on the surface
10 tablespoons of carrot juice
grated zest of 1 organic lemon
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of powdered cinnamon

Blend the carrots with carrot juice, pour the mixture into a bowl, add oil, sugar (or other sweetener), grated lemon zest and stir well. Dry mix very well white flour with baking powder, salt and cinnamon. At this point create a well in the center of the flour and pour in the liquid mixture (carrots, oil, sweetener and lemon), a bit at a time, stirring well, and keep on stirring well to dissolve any lumps. The mixture shouldn’t be too liquid, but thick and sticky. Oil with a little oil a cake tin, pour the mixture in, level and bake for 35 minutes at 180┬░C. Open and pierce the cake with a toothpick, if it comes out clean it is done, if it remains a bit wet, then cover the top of the cake with an aluminum foil and cook 10 minutes longer. Then let the cake cool and prepare a syrup by dissolving the malt with a bit of water and spread it on the top of the cake with a brush … with this method it will come out more polished, and if you pour over a little vanilla sugar (as I did), the sugar will be well stuck on the surface.

    This sounds so good – I remember I used to have carrot cake in USA, they also added almond flakes and raisins sometimes…a richer flavour but yours looks yummy anyway

    Hi Ascanio I think that it was definitely an anglo-saxon version of carrot cake, sometimes they are covered with the frosting as well, which is basically….pure butter. But it’s quite easy to find a vegan alternative to it on the web
