For the recipe  Gluten Free Carrot Cake

For the Cakes:

180 g Gluten Free Plain Flour
7.5 g Dr. Oetker Baking Powder (1 1/2 tsp)
10 g Ground Cinnamon
225 g Light Brown Sugar
100 g Sultanas
75 g Dried Apricots
180 g Pecan Nuts finely chopped
225 g Sunflower Oil

3 Medium Eggs (beaten)

preparation

Preparation

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C Fan, Gas Mark 4) and grease and line an 8 inch square tin. 

Step 2: Sift the gluten free flour, Baking Powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar, dried fruit and pecans. Make a well in the centre. Gradually mix in the eggs, Vanilla Paste and oil to form a well blended, thick batter. Stir in the grated carrot.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin, smooth and bake in the oven for about 40-45 minutes, until risen, firm to the touch and lightly golden. Leave to cool for 10 minutes then turn on to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: To decorate, Spread the Cream Cheese Icing over the top of the carrot cake using a palette knife and sprinkle with the pecans. Your carrot cake is now ready to be served!

If preferred, once the cake has cooled, leave in an airtight container for 24 hours before it is iced – this will help to develop the flavour and create a richer texture.
