Gluten Free Carrot Cake


 250g QM Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend- sifted

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

½ tsp salt

3/4 cup neutral oil.   We use olive oil.

4 eggs at room temperature

1 ½ cup brown sugar

½ cup white sugar

½ cup plain applesauce  (unsweetened)

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 cups grated carrots

 Preheat oven to 350 and grease 2- 9” round cake pans and line bottom with circle cut parchment paper.

In large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt.

 In another mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, oil, brown sugar, white sugar, applesauce and vanilla.  Add the carrots and mix until combined with wet ingredients.

 Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk until combined.

 Pour batter evenly between the two pans and bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool cake in the pans on wire rack for approximately 25 minutes.  Then remove cake, place cakes on rack to completely cool.

 Prepare your frosting of choice, and once cooled assemble and top with desired toppings.
