Simple Carrot Cake – Moist and Delicious

simple_qiuck_low_calorie_carrot_cake

Every time when I ask my husband what he would like for dessert, he always asks for a carrot cake. THE moist one. Men are so conservative πŸ˜‰

It’s amazing how simple this recipe is! Not only simple but healthy as well – this cake is loaded with vitamin C and fiber – thanks to carrots.

I promise, you will have to put in your effort for just a couple minutes – one minute to peel and cut carrots, and the second one is to make the batter. This carrot cake recipe is a real time saver.

Ingredients:
Carrots, medium, sliced – 2 (1 cup)
Brown sugar – 8 tsp
Spelt flour – 2/3 cup
Olive oil – 2 tbsp
Eggs – 2
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch

1. Preheat oven to 380 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a small 6×4 -inch cakepan with wax paper; lightly grease and flour wax paper. Set aside.
(If you want to bake a larger cake, just double all the ingredients and use a 9x 13 inch pan)
2. Mix all the ingredients in blender (or food processor). Pour the batter into the cakepan.
3. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

If you want, you can make a frosting for the cake; I like it as is. Sometimes I mix plain yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract and then serve this light sauce with my carrot cake.

Tried your recipe this morning and am very pleased with the result…
It came out moist & soft and even with less sugar it’s still sweet enough to taste so good.
