Bec’s Best Thermomix Carrot Cake

It is with great joy I bring you one of my favourite recipes that I have been making for YEARS…

A recipe that would take me HOURS of cooking, because I grated all the carrot by hand. It is a BIG cake… it can be completely gluten free and dairy free… and it is delicious! It has what I believe to be all the best things in a carrot cake… carrot, pineapple, walnuts and cinnamon

This conversion will bring you my new favourite Thermomix Carrot Cake… and I have to be honest, I think you’re going to love it too.

It was featured in Episode 53 of the podcast – Bec’s Best Birthday Thermomix Cake Recipes.

Ingredients

  • 450g Carrot (Cut into chunks)
  • 4 Eggs
  • 250g Brown Sugar
  • 130g Olive Oil
  • 100g Golden Syrup
  • 250g Flour (We used gluten free)
  • 1 teaspoon Bicarb Soda
  • 1.5 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 120g Canned Crushed Pineapple (Drained)
  • 70g Walnuts

Directions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Step 2
Grate 450g carrots, Speed 5-6 / 8 seconds (remove any big pieces remaining)
Set aside.
Step 3
Add 4 eggs and 250g brown sugar.
Speed 5 / 20 seconds.
Step 4
Add 130g olive oil and 100g golden syrup.
Speed 5 / 10 seconds.
Step 5
Add 250g GF flour, 1 tsp bicarb soda, 1.5 tsp baking powder, 0.5 tsp ground cinnamon.
Speed 5 /10 seconds, push down sides, Speed 5 / 10 seconds
Step 6
Add grated carrot, 120g drained canned crushed pineapple, 70g roughly chopped walnuts.
Reverse+Speed 4 / 10 seconds
Step 7
Pour into a big square tin.
Step 8
Cook for 45-60 minutes. Top should be golden, and skewer should come out clean.
Step 9
After the cake has cooled, consider using a half batch of the Orange Buttercream Frosting recipe on the Cafe Disarray blog... but using lemon zest and 1-2 tsp of the crushed pineapple. Just be mindful that this will affect your wet / dry balance so you may wish to reduce the milk. Use Nuttelex and a non-dairy milk to keep the frosting dairy free. Sprinkle with walnuts.

If you are looking for the Frosting recipe, you can find it here. Remember, a half serve of this recipe will cover this big Thermomix carrot cake well.

Enjoy!
