Instructions

Low-Carb Carrot Cake

  • Beat eggs, melted butter, sweetener, and vanilla together.
  • Add grated/shredded carrot, walnuts, and coconut then mix almond meal/flour, spices and baking powder.
  • Pour into a greased and lined tin. Bake at 180C/350F for 40-50 minutes or until a fork pushed in, comes out clean.
  • Ensure your cake is completely cool before icing/frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Warm the cream cheese in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften it.
  • Stir in 1-2 tbs sweetener of choice.
  • You could also add some lemon zest to give it more flavour. This would add a small number of carbs.
  • Cover with cream cheese frosting.

Notes

  • I used an 8 inch/ 20 cm cake tin.
  • Always allow your cake to be completely cooled before frosting/icing your low-carb carrot cake
  • Brands of almond flour/meal vary considerably to how much liquid from the batter the flour/meal will absorb. To prevent your cake from being too moist:
    • you may need to use additional almond flour/meal to ensure correct cake batter consistency
    • always allow the cake to cool completely so it may have time to absorb any butter that may have rendered out during cooking
