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.

Description

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. I have to be honest, I think you’re going to love it too. You can of course do a traditional cream cheese icing, or even leave the cake plain, but I have converted a recipe which will allow you to have an icing while keeping the cake dairy-free. Thanks to Donna from Cafe Disarray for this one. – Bec
