If you’re in search of an AIP tackle carrot cake, right here is the recipe you’ve been ready for! Good for a birthday, Easter meal, or “simply because,” you’ll love how simply this carrot spice cake comes collectively (and the non-AIPers will like it as nicely!).

A number of of notes about this recipe – you’ll discover I solely name for weights for the flours. It is because some AIP baking recipes require actual precision, and my efforts to recreate this utilizing cup measurements haven’t been profitable. Should you plan on performing some AIP baking, I extremely advocate choosing up a gram scale (that is the one I take advantage of!) as you might be more likely to have correct outcomes utilizing weights.

There’s something a few Bundt cake pan that produces an evenly moist and textured cake, even with AIP flours, and I haven’t been in a position to reproduce the feel in an everyday cake pan.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 levels F. Grease a 6-cup bundt pan with avocado oil and put aside.
  • Mix the flours, sugar, arrowroot, baking soda, spices and salt in a big bowl and put aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, add the oil, syrup, lemon juice, and vanilla extract and whisk to mix earlier than including to the big bowl with the flour. Stir. Add the water, stir till simply mixed, after which fold within the carrots. Switch to the 6-cup bundt pan and bake for 50 minutes, or till calmly browned (cake is not going to rise or increase a lot, that is regular for baking with cassava flour).
  • Enable the cake to chill within the pan for 20 minutes earlier than fastidiously flipping it over and eradicating the pan. Let it cool on a wire rack for no less than 40 minutes earlier than transferring to the fridge for 20 minutes to relax so the glaze will set when poured on prime.
  • When you find yourself prepared to decorate the cake, mix the coconut oil, coconut yogurt, and maple syrup in a bowl, utilizing a whisk to mix. The combination needs to be thick, however nonetheless pourable – if not, warmth for a couple of seconds in a microwave or heat water tub. Spoon the glaze alongside the highest of the cake, permitting it to drip down the perimeters, and mud with cinnamon if desired earlier than inserting within the fridge for 10 minutes to set. Serve chilled.
  • I do not give cup equivalents for this recipe as a result of the parts are fairly fussy, and it solely comes out nicely when the flours are weighed. If you do not have a gram scale, I like to recommend choosing one up on-line or at your favourite cookery retailer, as it’s going to make baking with various flours a lot simpler!
