A reader recently asked me if I had a carrot cake recipe on the website. I couldn’t believe it, but I didn’t– so here it is. Just in time for Easter, this easy, classic cake has all the flavor of its wheat and sugar-based counterpart, without all the carbs and gluten. This gluten free carrot cake contains just 5g net carbs per serving.
Your non-low carb, non-wheat-free friends and family members will enjoy this cake just as much as the real thing. If you want, you can add a quarter cup of chopped raisins if you prefer to have raisins in your cake. One thing is for sure, though– make sure you get your carrots really, really tiny– almost a pulp. If they are too big, they will remain crunchy in the cake, which some people may not view favorably. This low carb carrot cake is truly to die for!
