  • 3 extra large (55g) eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 100g light brown sugar
  • 250ml mild flavoured oil (such as sunflower, vegetable, canola)
  • 3 medium (420g) carrots, peeled & finely grated
  • 1 large granny smith apple, grated
  • 50g desiccated coconut
  • 100g walnuts or pecans, chopped (optional)
  • 2/3 cup (110g) Well & Good RAW potato starch
  • 2/3 cup (80g) Well & Good RAW sorghum flour
  • ½ cup (75g) Well & Good RAW rice flour
  • 1 tsp Well & Good RAW psyllium husk
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 teaspoons gluten free baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 75g raisins or sultanas

Icing – you will need

  • 60g unsalted butter, softened
  • 60g cream cheese, at room temp
  • 250g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice

23cm round spring-form cake tin

1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Place the eggs and sugars in the bowl of a food processor. Blend on full speed for 2 minutes. With the motor running, add the oil in a thin stream. Add the grated carrot, apple, desiccated coconut and nuts, if using.

2. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the batter. Process 1 minute. Stir through the sultanas. Pour the batter into the greased and lined cake tin. Bake for 60-70 minutes or until an inserted skewer comes out cleanly. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire cake wrack to cool completely.

3. For the icing; whip the butter and cream cheese together in a bowl using electric beaters, or the food processor. Add half the icing sugar and beat on low speed to incorporate. Beat in the orange juice, followed by the remaining icing sugar. Beat well for 2 minutes. Spread over the cooled cake. Serve.

Carrot cake will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
