Carrot cake almonds and oranges

Carrot cake almonds and oranges. Is’ an amazing dessert, without butter and fluffy, but it made me feel a lot. But I found the perfect recipe. I had in mind for a long time a rustic carrot cake, with carrots and Avola almonds They could see it and to feel good in the dough, with a scent of Orange and a delicate but clear, NET.

I made it 5 or 6 times, also following various recipes found in cookbooks or on the net. And no never convinced me way down: Some have not risen, others have come good but with a dough too fine, smooth. I wanted that carrots and almonds yes they chewed’ well and had a certain something that slice of rustic, inviting. And I mean, at the end of this latest version of carrot cake, almonds and oranges I liked: well risen but consistent, with the coarsely chopped almonds and carrots that you see and feel the dough.

My tips for a perfect orange and almond carrot cake

I suggest you to use carrots' old’ for a few days, They then lost a little’ of water, because I noticed that most are dry carrots better is sweet. The scent of the orange peel that is given more juice (that is just, to avoid the risk that underlies the sweet yeast not well). I used vegetable oil, as little as possible (I'm not a fan of the oil cakes, but when I tried it with the butter was a tragedy) and 4 eggs that guarantee structure and air to the mixture.

I made the carrot cake, almond and orange donut version in high enough, and the cooking time much longer than regular cake, but you can also use stencils to dome (I know you all are thinking at Camille, but my idea was that of a sweet less ' refined '), and you can use the same dough to make healthy, delicious muffins. There's color and flavor even. In any case, for a variation, try the CARROT AND GINGER CAKE STUFFED WITH MASCARPONE I made varying an American recipe: different but great. And do not forget the CARROT MUFFINS WITHOUT BUTTER: light but yummy.

250 grams of carrots (net weight without skin)

200 grams of caster sugar

100 grams of peeled almonds or almond flour is not too fine

200 grams of 00 flour for cakes (If you don't want to use the almonds used only 280 grams of flour 00)

50 ml vegetable oil (I used sunflower)

grated rind of one organic Orange

25 ml of orange juice

4 whole eggs

16 grams of baking powder

a pinch of cinnamon (Optional)

a pinch of salt

butter and flour for the cake Pan

icing sugar to decorate the cake


Carrot cake, almonds and oranges

For the carrot cake, almonds and oranges, Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static. Grease and flour the mold you've chosen: zipper closure, a ring or portion. Only the buttered muffin cups should not be nor floured.

Blend in the mixer the almonds with 30 grams of sugar: You'll have to get some sort of coarse flour, with bits of almond still evident. Set aside.

Always in the mixer, blend the carrots with the seed oil, the orange zest and orange juice.

With an electric mixer, 4 in a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, salt and cinnamon. You will need to obtain a whitish, puffy and fluffy and it will take 10-15 minutes. Add to this the almond flour mixture and continue to whisk, then the carrots. Finally, with the help of a spatula, combine the flour with the baking powder little at a time.

Pour the dough for the carrot cake, almonds and oranges into the pan or into molds or cups for muffins and bake. Bake for 25 minutes in case you have opted for the single portion or muffins, for 40 minutes in the case of the cake and for 50 minutes in the case of the doughnut, that needs longer cooking times due to the height of the dessert. Remember that in all cases is always the toothpick test, that should come out dry cake stuffed in.

Remove from the oven carrot cake, almonds and oranges, put on a wire rack and let cool completely. Sprinkle the cake with icing sugar and enjoy your meal!

Hi Ada, can I replace the 00 flour with a gluten-free one?

Ada Parisi February 28, 2023 - 16:35

Hello Francesca I don't think, unless you use a cake mix and already tested. The risk is that the cake does not succeed well, As you know to make gluten-free desserts you need specific knowledge and ingredients. Let me know. ADA

Thank you very much!

Susanna 9 February 2018 - 23:22

Hi Ada, a question: The carrot puree in a food processor must become creamy or just finely chopped? I made tonight, but a little is coming’ low. I'll try again Cmq, because the combination of flavors I really like

Ada Parisi 10 February 2018 - 00:04

Hello Susanna! The carrots should be chopped finely, creamy would also mean a higher quality of liquid and perhaps that has remained low. Too moist. Let me know if you try again!

Cristina 20 January 2018 - 15:21

If you do then the muffins can be frozen??

Ada Parisi 20 January 2018 - 17:08

Hi Cristina. I honestly never freeze a cake or a muffin, Only croissants. But even if you do habitually with this mixture should be no problem. Let me know, maybe next time I try I also. Good Sunday!

Clara 16 January 2018 - 18:55

Ada Parisi 18 October 2017 - 14:36

Josephine I would say yes, If they are just big Yes. Let me know, ADA

Evelina 16 October 2017 - 16:06

Hi Ada,
Yesterday I made this delicious cake and came soft and fragrant. The only thing I had put some doubts before you make it, and that then turned out as I thought, was the amount of sugar that indeed seemed excessive and made the cake to my taste too sweet.
I was wondering if the quantity is correct.

Thank you and always great

Ada Parisi 16 October 2017 - 16:08

Hi Evelina! Thank you very much, I'm so glad you liked it! Is the amount of sugar is the correct one to balance the dough, but you can decrease with total tranquility up to 50 grams without having repercussions on the softness of the cake. Let's say 200 grams can be enough, now I edit even the recipe. I like less sweet. A warm greeting. ADA

Hi Ada! And congratulations on your tenacity!
It just looks so inviting, a lovely summer color that brings joy! I will try and maybe my sister will change opinion about carrot cake…!!!
A hug! Antonella

Ada Parisi November 14, 2016 - 11:08

Antonella thanks! Will you let me know? Here actually tastes is not focused on carrots, is a pleasant balance because he knows and then you chew well the almonds. I liked it very much, the again often because I really struggled to balance the doses and now I want to ' make’ at most! A warm greeting. ADA
