LCHF low carb carrot cake
Amazingly delicious low carb carrot cake. Wow your friends with this one.

INGREDIENTS


  • 5 eggs - medium

  • 200g butter melted (I often cut this down to 100g as it's too buttery tasting for me)

  • 3 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice (I use Natvia baking)

  • 2 tsp vanilla

  • 3 cups carrots grated/shredded

  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped (optional)

  • 1/2 cup shredded/desiccated unsweetened coconut

  • 150 g (1 1/2 cups) almond flour/meal

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1-2tsp mixed spice

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp ginger (optional)


Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 200g cream cheese

  • 1-2 tbsp granulated sweetener

DIRECTIONS


  1. Beat eggs, melted butter, sweetener, and vanilla together.

  2. Add grated/shredded carrot, walnuts, and coconut - mix

  3. Add almond meal/flour, spices and baking powder - mix

  4. Pour into a greased and lined tin ( I use a loaf pan or a 20cm tin)

  5. Bake at 180c 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


  1. Warm the cream cheese in the microwave for 20 seconds to soften it.

  2. Stir in 1-2 tbs sweetener of choice.

  3. You could also add some lemon zest to give it more flavour. This would add a small number of carbs.

  4. Cover cake with cream cheese frosting.
