Desserts - Phase 2 - Phase 2 carrot cake?!
07-25-2011, 03:26 PM
I have almond flour that I would like to make carrot cake with, but can't seem to find a good recipe for one. Has anyone come across a good SB carrot cake? My mom and I just bought some xylitol powdered sugar we'd like to try for icing, but we need something to put it on!! Thank you for helping us with our carrot cake needs! :D

So this is one I found, won't have a chance to try it until next weekend though. Ingredients:
2 cups almond flour
up to a cup of splenda (a cup was a little too sweet)
1 cup grated carrots
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp cloves
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup softened butter (replace with ICBINB)
3 eggs at room temperature, separated
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup of chopped nuts (opt)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter with splenda and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add yolks one at a time. Add dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until firm peaks form and fold into rest of ingredients. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes.
I also don't know the nutritional facts for this recipe. :carrot:

Sugar Free Cream Cheese Icing
3 blocks of 1/3 less fat cream cheese (aka Neufchatel Cheese), softened
1 pkt sugar free vanilla instant pudding
2% milk (or FF 1/2 n' 1/2)
nutmeg to taste
Whip the cream cheese and SF vanilla pudding mix together. Add enough 2% milk to make it fluffy, then add nutmeg to taste. This makes a thick icing, heavy enough to pipe borders around a cake, but not thick enough to create icing flowers. To make it runnier, you can try using more milk or cut it in 1/2 and add extra milk. :)
This is the one I found on here. They didn't post any nutritional facts about this though. I love carrot cake too! Have a happy birthday!
