Recipe: Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

Easter is less than a week away now.  What better way to celebrate than with a gluten-free carrot cake?  This cake does take a bit of time to make, but I promise it is well worth it! 


Carrot Cake

**Recipe courtesy of Betty Crocker’s New Cookbook, modified to be gluten-free by me

  • 1.5 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 large egg, 4 egg whites
  • 2 cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups shredded carrots (5-6 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup raisins

Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe to follow)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 2 8 or 9-inch pans with Pam.  **You could use a 13 x 9 inch pan if you like.

2.  Shred the carrots in a food processor (messy job, but so worth it)

3.  Mix sugar, oil, applesauce and eggs in a large bowl until blended and then beat for 1 minute.

4.  Mix in remaining ingredients, except the raisins & nuts.  Beat for 1 minute.

5.  Stir in carrots & nuts and pour into pan or pans.

6.  Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or the round pans or 40 – 45 minutes for the rectangle.

7.  Frost and enjoy!

  • 2 tsps skim milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar

1.  Beat the first 4 ingredients together until smooth.

2.  Start to mix in the powdered sugar a little at a time.  The frosting is ready when it is smooth & spreadable.

So good!
