Carrot Cake With Frosting

Lately I was craving for carrot cake, so I thought why not try to make one myself. It turned out perfectly and that’s why I am going to share the recipe with you.

First of all, this is what you’re going to need:
– 400g carrots (I shredded them in a blender)
– 250g flour
– 250g sugar
– 200g almond flour
– 3 tsp baking soda
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 200ml oil (I used sunflower oil)
– 4 eggs
– 200g cream cheese
– 150g powdered sugar
– a few tsp of lemon juice

I just mixed the shredded carrots with the eggs, sugar, oil and cinnamon first. I think the proper way is to do that without the carrots first and then put them in afterward. But it works either way. Then I added the almond flour, wheat flour and baking soda until it all ended up being a viscous cake dough. You can basically put the dough in any cake pan you like, I used a squared one. The you’ll just have to bake that thing.
I did that with an electric baking oven with 180 °C upper and lower heat for about 60 minutes.

When the cake was ready and cooled down, I mixed the frosting. I just mixed everything together until I liked it. You can leave out the lemons, add more or less sugar or cream cheese. Just try it out.
