postheadericon First Birthday Carrot Cake

This is a delicious gfcf, gluten free, family-friendly recipe! It is also (if you double check ingredients!) a wheat free, dairy free, soy free, egg free, tree nut free, peanut free, fish free, shellfish free, corn free, top 8 allergen free, and vegan recipe.

This is a variation on several recipes. It’s a good first birthday cake, because there are no eggs, nor other major allergens. It’s also pretty low in sugar, so you could eat it for breakfast without much guilt!

Mix together:

  • 1.5 cups grated carrot, loosely packed (or use a food processor to just mush it)

  • 1 cup sugar (type is up to you)

and let sit for 15 min

Add

  • 1 1/2 cups gf flour mix + 1 tsp xanthan or guar gum (or just 1 1/2 cups wheat flour)

  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar

Method:
Mix together dry ingredients with a whisk. Add wet ingredients and dry to the carrot/sugar mix.

Pour into a bundt cake pan or a 8×8 pan (well greased). bake for 40 min at 350. let cool and eat as is or with confectioner’s sugar dusted on top.
