Well Hello Internet!
Last night i made a Gluten Free Carrot Cake.
its pretty easy to make! heres what you’ll need:
2.5 cups gluten free flour (i used arrowhead mills all purpose gluten free flour. it is a fantastic GF mix)
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup corn oil
4 eggs slightly beaten
1 tablespoon REAL mayonaise
2 cups grated carrots
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
9 oz or so canened crushed pineapple with juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
What you’ll need for the frosting:
Cream cheese frosting:
1/2 cup melted
8 ounces cream cheese softened
1.25 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
preheat the oven to 350°
i did this in my kitchen Aid, but you can do it by hand if you want. mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Mix in the corn oil, eggs, and mayonaise. Stir well. Stir in the carrots, the nuts, the cranberries, and pineapple.
i used 2 circular 9″ cake pans. this mixture makes the perfect amount for these two pans. grease the pans and fill them with the batter. bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Cream Cheese Fosting
whip all ingredients together till fluffy.
when the cake cools down, put one layer down, and spread frosting on the first layer. put the second cake on top, and spread the frosting all over the top and the sides! then you can put nuts all around the side, and a little more on top.
