Nothing is worse than a carrot cake that is super sweet and doesn’t have much carrot, so I made sure this recipe was full of carrot and was not too sweet.

This cake has a loafy texture and is perfect with a cup of tea or for a midmorning snack. You could even skip the frosting and toast a slice for a yummy breakfast.

4 medium carrots, grated
1 cup of All Purpose Flour
1 cup of Wholewheat flour
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup of rice bran oil
4 eggs, organic
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup pecans, chopped

1.) Sift all your dry ingredients- flours, spices, sugar and baking powder into a large bowl.
