Best Gluten-Free Carrot Cake
The 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 delectable.
carrot cake frosting,
Two extra moist, pleasingly sweet soft carrot cake layers, frosted with a zesty frosting made with whipped cream cheese, sour cream, fresh lemon juice and vanilla. YUM!
I also added earthy walnuts to the frosting to make it even more delicious! Doesn’t this sound good?
Coconut flakes and raisins!
What makes this carrot cake stand out from most are raisins and coconut flakes in the cake layers. A little different, but so yummy!
Decorating the carrot cake.
I added extra walnuts, freshly grated carrots, and a sprinkle of coconut flakes to the frosting for the final touch. To decorate the cake, spread the frosting between two layers and over the top.
The best part is that this gluten-free carrot cake is made simply, is lightly sweetened, and the cake layers are flavoured with extra carrots and fresh orange juice.
Then, the cake layers are decorated with the most delicious zesty frosting. This gluten-free dessert turned out better than the classic recipe making this my best gluten-free carrot cake on the blog.
Carrot cake for special occasions.
This cake is for special occasions like Mother’s Day, Easter or that special birthday. And you can whip it up in no time! And, it does make an excellent addition to brunch.
What I love about this cake is it may be considered healthy-ish. Just imagine fresh carrots, heart-healthy olive oil, unsweetened coconut flakes, raisins, walnuts and fresh lemon juice, all in one dessert.
I hope you enjoy this carrot cake as much as my family does! If you are looking for more gluten-free carrot recipes, I recommend gluten-free carrot pancakes.
