An essential dessert, especially during the winter season!
Think of the warming spices, the sweetness of the carrot and the crunch of the walnuts.. what’s not to love about this delicious cake.
Of course, the Essence of G kitchen has taken a healthy twist on the old time classic cake, with no refined sugar and all the nutritional benefits!
This cake is super dense, super moist and super delicious – I reckon you’ll be finding it hard to put the fork down after your first bite ;).
400 grams Carrot – grated
2 ½ cups Wholemeal Flour
3 tsp Baking powder
2 tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp Nutmeg
½ tsp All spice
½ tsp Vanilla Extract
½ cup Sultanas
¼ cup Walnuts crushed
¼ cup Pure Maple Syrup
Preheat in you oven to 180 degrees
Grate roughly 4 to 5 carrots, equalling 400 grams worth
Place carrots, eggs, wholemeal flour, baking powder, spices and vanilla into a medium sized bowl
Stir through until well combined
Slowly add in the sultanas and walnuts and continue to stir through
Line a medium sized cake tin with baking paper and spray with canola oil – focus on the edges of your tin to avoid the cake sticking once cooked.
Pour in your cake batter and smooth down until evenly spread
Pop in the oven for roughly 35 minutes, ensure to check your cake is cooked through using a skewer.
Once done, take out and let cool on a cooling rack
