Dad’s recipe

The recipe is so easy that even our children can make it. The hardest part is grating the carrot, which can be grated finely, passed through a special attachment for a kitchen machine, or through a food processor for ease.

This cake is perfect for all of you who don’t eat dairy since it uses no milk or yogurt. Of course, like most recipes in my blog, it has no sugar and has only the absolutely necessary quantity of honey.

For the recipe, you’ll need

  • Carrots. Prefer organic carrots. They may be smaller, but they’re tastier and “cleaner.” 
  • Olive oil. Cakes can be delicious without butter, and they’re healthier with olive oil, too.
  • All-purpose flour
  • Walnuts. Process the walnuts so they can be eaten even by babies. You want them turned into powder. 
  • Eggs. Prefer organic and free-range.
  • Honey. Skip for children under the age of one and adjust to your liking and tastes if you want something sweeter.
  • Spice. You can’t make carrot cake without spices like cinnamon and nutmeg.
