The tastiest and Healthiest Carrot Cake

I was thinking what should I name the carrot cake, is it winter cake, or summer cake or fall cake, actually it is a year-round cake because carrots are pretty much always in season. 

This healthy carrot cake recipe is very easy, fast and healthy. I tried different versions, substituted a number of  ingredients until I got this one, and Im telling you with confidence that it is the BEST CARROT CAKE EVER.

Ingredients:

Cake:

2 cups of flour

2 cups shredded carrots

1 cup of crushed walnuts

2 tbs cinnamon

2 eggs

1 tbs vanilla extract

1/3 cup of coconut oil

1/2 cup of honey

1 cup of greek yogurt

1 cup coconut milk

2 big spoons of coconut creme

2 tbs baking soda

3 tbs baking powder

1/2 tbs salt

1 cup coconut flakes

Greek yogurt Icing:

1/2  cup of greek yogurt

1/2 cup of heavy creme

3 tbsp of mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup of coconut sugar

1 tbs vanilla extract

Coconut flakes for garnishing

Instruction;

  1. Preheat oven 180 degree celsius. 
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs for 10 seconds, then add yogurt, coconut milk, coconut creme, vanilla extract, honey whisk well and put aside.
  3. In another bowl, mix the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt whisk well and set aside.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, until well combined
  5. Add carrots, walnuts and coconut flakes whisk until combined, donโ€™t over whisk.
  6. Pour into a baking dish that you already sprayed with coconut oil.
  7. Let it rest for 10 min than put in oven for 30 min
  8. Prepare the Icing: in a bowl, mix the yogurt, heavy creme, mascarpone cheese, sugar and vanilla extract together.
  9. If you are doing one big cake, transfer the icing on top of the cake a spread with spatula and garnish with coconut flakes or eatable flowers. If you are doing smaller portions like I did today, I used the muffins baking try, you can add the icing on each piece before serving.

Tip: If your yogurt is less than 10% fat, put the yogurt in a coffee filter or paper sheet on top of the bowl for 4 hours in the fridge until it stains.
