Guilt-free cake...

#glutenfree, #dairyfree & #sugarfree purple #carrot cake

Yes - it is possible to have tasty, moist cake on a gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free diet. 

 

Basic recipe

300g grated carrots

300g ground almonds

1-2 tsp cinnamon (helps to regulate blood sugar levels)

½ tsp vanilla powder

½ tsp grated lemon rind

5 eggs

honey according to taste- I usually use a small cup of our home made honey.

 

How to make it:

Separate the eggs, beat the eggwhites till stiff. Mix all other ingredients, at the end fold in the eggwhites gently.

Bake at 190 degrees for 45 minutes- Voilà !

 

Decoration

Decorate according to taste or occasion. The cake in the picture was for Easter so I made it with purple carrots for extra effect. But you can also use normal orange ones or white ones look good too.

 

For the decoration I made home-made marzipan with ground almonds and honey. It is basically a mixture of ground almonds and honey- keep adding honey to the ground almonds until you reach the desired texture, then cool for about an hour before processing it. For extra colour effect I use flavonoid rich antioxidant fruit powders- the purple was Acai and pink raspberry.

 

Enjoy- We certainly did…
