Easy Carrot Cake

Grate 250 gr carrots into a bowl and mix with 2 tlsp. lemon juice. Preheat oven to 180°C, grease a medium square baking tin (or 28 cm dia. round tin) and sprinkle bottom and sides with fine breadcrumbs. Mix 250 gr ground almonds, 50 gr flour and 2 tsp. baking powder. Separate 6 medium eggs. Beat eggwhites adding 160 gr sugar little by little until stiff. Add yolks to flour mixture and stir in carrots. Gently stir in the beaten eggwhite mixture. Pour into the tin and bake approx. 40 minutes on the middle shelf. Remove cake from oven and leave for 5 minutes. Then remove from tin and let cool on a rack. Mix 200 gr powdered sugar with 2 - 3 tlsp. lemon juice and glaze the top of the cake. Decorate with store-bought marzipan carrots if desired.

Enjoy!

  14. Those are lovely Easter decorations! Coincidentally, I made carrot cake with my daughter a few days ago but with a slightly different recipe - the only different ingredient in your recipe was ground almonds - I will add that extra ingredient next time!!

    Hope that you are having a nice Easter,

  19. Hope you had a great holiday! Love the decorations too. In terms of you being a closet city girl, perhaps we should trade then, huh?

  21. My mouth is watering from reading this post, especially that carrot cake is one of my favorite cakes to eat.

    I'm not a baker though, so I'm going to the store soon to get me a whole carrot cake. LOL.
