another gf carrot cake

I used this recipe!

(((Completely btw – )I also found this page, with a lot of useful tips!

 

This are the ingredients, and I think that for like the first time ever, I followed the recipe! (except the golden syrup, we don’t have this here. )

  • Olive oil, to grease
  • 2 (about 300g) carrots
  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup (75g) plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (80g) brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) golden syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
    1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease a 20cm (base) round cake pan lightly with oil, and line with non-stick baking paper. Peel and grate the carrots, and set aside. Sift the flours, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a large bowl.
    2. Put the brown sugar, oil, golden syrup, eggs and vanilla in a separate bowl. Use a balloon whisk to mix until combined.
    3. Pour the oil mixture into the dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon to stir gently until just combined. Stir in the grated carrot.
    4. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 1 hour. Set aside for 5 minutes, before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    I followed the recipe, and it all went well, except…It tasted a bit bitter. No idea why.
