Caramel Carrot Cake Recipe


If you are avoiding refined sugar, try this delicious and moist carrot cake which uses maple syrup as sweetener. You could also use agave syrup if you’re not a fan of a maple. If you don’t want to use sunflower oil, you could use a walnut oil, pistachio oil or any tasteless oil you like.Everyone needs a good Carrot Cake recipe under their belt and THIS is all you’ll ever need to make that happen!
This recipes is very easy, no need to use a mixer for the cake batter.
I find this cake to be best the next day, or at least let is sit in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours.
