Blender Carrot Cake!

Hi people! 😉
Today, one of my momma’s classic: a delicious and (relatively) healthy carrot cake!
I like the structure of it, the fact that it is more like a souffle than a cake, the taste, the memories … So, so good!
With no further ado, let’s get to it!
3 medium carrots, grated or thiiiiinly sliced
1 cup Canola Oil
1 / 2 cup Brown sugar
1 / 2 cup Organic Sugar

2  cups All Purp. Flour
1 / 2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 / 2 teaspoon Baking Soda

Your Beautiful Blender (or Vitamix, which makes me envy-er)
Big Bowl
Wooden Spoon
A round 9″ springform lined with foil
How to:
Place the carrots with the oil and sugar in your blender. Pulse to “break” it all to tiny lil’ pieces, and then blend at high speed. If it becomes difficult, add 1 / 4 cup water and blend until it resembles a fine puree.

Preheat oven to 180 ° C / 375F.

Pour your carrot mix into the bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients using the wooden spoon until it’s all combined well. No uncooked flour pockets allowed! It ruins the entire thing, just sayin’.

Place the  dough in the pan, adjust with a spoon to make the surface even and bake for 30 minutes. Test with a toothpick. If it comes out dry, the cake is ready! Isn’t it the simplest thing? 😉

Allow it to cool and dig in!

It’s not overly sweet. If you’re a sweet-tooth, make the cake even more Brazilian and traditional, and sweet by making a simple chocolate sauce to go with it:

1 / 4 cup Cocoa Powder
1 / 4 cup Sugar or Agave
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Hot water.

Mix cocoa, sugar and vanilla. Add hot water with a spoon until the mixture reaches the consistency you want. Poke the cake several times with a toothpick and then, pour the sauce over!

I hope you have a great weekend!

  1. Wow, that’s really innovative, and I like the idea of minimal cleanup afterward. 🙂

  2. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    • Jesus Mary Joseph! That’s a cute lovely response, Mathew, thanks! I’m really sorry I got THAT long to answer, though! I’m sorry! >.<
      I was having a whole set of problems in the family, but getting active in the kitchen again! I'll be back fully and kicking asap!
