After I was becoming an adult, carrot cake was always my birthday cake. Not by choice, actually it had been precisely what my parents made. And That I wasn’t usually happy about this.
The thing is, being from the family that concentrates on eating organic food, plenty of fruits and vegetables, wholegrain breads, etc., I usually believed that carrot cake was my parents’ method of coming more vegetables into my diet. I'd cash preferred if they’d just baked a vanilla cake from the box, but… such is existence whenever you can’t bake on your own.
Now, being an adult, I've got a newly found love and appreciation for carrot cake. I’ve recognized that it is enjoy every other cake – with sugar, body fat and flour – simply with the power of the couple of extra elements. Plus, I believe the vegetables inside make eating a slice in the morning a lot more acceptable. Cake in the morning? Usually a good idea.
Today’s recipe is really a gluten-free form of our popular carrot cake recipe. I’ve made only a couple of simple tweaks, using our gluten-free flour as my base and baking the wedding cake inside a Bundt pan rather than round cake pans. I did not alter the icing, drizzling it with this tasty cream cheese frosting because really, what can a carrot cake be without cream cheese frosting?
And I must say, this is actually the best gluten-free carrot cake recipe I’ve ever sampled. It doesn't only take advantage amazing breakfast cake, but it is also just sweet enough to really make it an ideal dessert option, too. We do hope you appreciate it!
