I love carrot cake and I have found a way to make it sugar free, but still tasty. That way you can love cake without that guilty feeling.
It didn’t take my friends and I long to get through half the cake over a coffee catch up with the kids. Look at that delicious cake… follow these easy steps for a guilt free and tasty treat!
Purchase these ingredients. As you can see a very simple and healthy cake based on real food.
Mix in eggs one at a time and then add melted butter to dry mix, combining well.
Add grated carrot and walnuts and stir in buttermilk slowly. Cake mix should look like this.
Pour mix into a 6 x 4 inch round tin. Now it’s time to bake. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius (340 degrees Fahrenheit) for 35-40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean.
Once cake has been cooled for at least one hour, cut cake in half.
This can be done in three easy steps:
1. Cube cream cheese and butter, mix well then blend in milk
2. Add the zest of one lemon and lemon juice
3. Test icing to taste. If you have a sweet tooth and find it is not sweet enough add 1/4 cup of honey
Doesn’t this look delicious? Spread a thick layer of icing in the centre of the cake.
I would really like to take a bite of the cake now… it is looking so good.
Top with a layer of walnuts in any pattern you like.
Now it is time to enjoy your sugar free carrot cake. That looks cakealicious. Happy Baking!
