Best Gluten-Free Carrot Cake
Best Gluten-Free Carrot Cake with light zesty cream cheese frosting. The deliciously tasty cake is made with unsweetened coconut flakes, raisins, coconut sugar and orange juice, keeping it sweet without adding that extra sugar. The creamy, zesty frosting is made with a mix of cream cheese and sour cream, keeping the frosting light and amazing.
Two extra moist pleasingly sweet soft carrot cake layers, frosted with whipped cream cheese and sour cream zesty frosting. I have also added walnuts to the frosting, making it even more delicious 🙂 Doesn’t this sound good? To make this gluten-free carrot cake extra special, I added unsweetened coconut flakes and raisins to the cake layers. Then, I decorated the frosting with some more walnuts, freshly grated carrots and a sprinkle of coconut flakes.
The best part, there is nothing fancy about this cake, just lightly sweeteed cake layers flavoured with carrots, fresh orange juice, raisins and coconut flakes. Then, the cake layers are decorated with the most delicious zesty frosting. This recipe turned out better than I expected, making this my best gluten-free carrot cake.
This gluten-free dessert is for one of those special occasions like Mother’s Day, Easter or that special birthday. What I love about this cake, it is on the healthy-ish side. Just imagine, fresh carrots, unsweetened coconut flakes, raisins, walnuts and fresh lemon juice. I hope you enjoy this carrot cake as much as my family does!
