Healthy Sugar-Free Carrot Cake - Video Recipe

In this video, I will show you how to make a healthy carrot cake!

This is the perfect homemade gift idea for your parents or your friends!

I used sugar substitute (to save calories) but you can of course use regular sugar.

Sugar-Free Carrot Cake

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1.5hr
Number of servings: 1 loaf

Necessary Equipment:
18×8cm (7x3inch) loaf pan

2 eggs
30g (1.0oz.) sugar substitute or 90g (3.2oz.) regular sugar
100g (3.5oz.) carrot
70g (2.5oz.) mixed dried fruit 
(no sugar added): raisins, pineapple, cranberries, orange peel
40g (1.4oz.) chopped walnuts
120ml vegetable oil
* 200g (7oz.) cake flour
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 2 tsp. cinnamon powder
* 1 tsp. ginger powder

1. Line the loaf pan with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 170C (338F).
2. Grate the carrot with a coarse grater (or in a processor if you have). Mix A and sift them together if you have time.
3. Beat eggs in a bowl. Add sugar and mix well.
4. Mix in the grated carrot, mixed dried fruit, and chopped walnuts.
5. Add the vegetable oil and mix well. Then sift in A and fold in with a spatula.
6. Pour the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Use the spatula to cut an incision lengthwise down middle of cake to prevent unwanted cracks on the surface. Bake at 170C (338F) for 40-50 minutes. *Cover the cake with aluminum foil if it starts to brown too much.
7. Remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.

* When the cake is completely cool, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. It will last wrapped this way for few days (in the fridge).
* You can also wrap each slices of pound cake individually with a plastic wrap.
