So this recipe was Arthur’s idea. This afternoon he said “I know mama let’s make a big cake for Sadie and I can eat it!” Hmm ok I’m sure she’ll appreciate that. Anyway I asked what we should put in the cake and he told me carrots and chocolate. So we made some carrot and chocolate cakes and they are pretty delicious. They were pretty quick and easy and filled some time on this rainy day. And of course once you’ve baked cake there is always washing up to do and my boy loves to skiddle in the sink and soak the kitchen….who doesn’t?
Chocolate carrot cakes
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 3 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/3 cup grated carrot
- 2 large eggs
Preheat oven to 190/gas 5.
Line a cupcake tray with 6 cupcake cases.
In a large bowl mix together the coconut flour, oatmeal, cacao powder and baking powder.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan over a low heat.
With a hand blender blitz the grated carrot, honey and coconut oil until they form a smooth mixture, then add to the dry ingredients.
Mix in the eggs and combine thoroughly.
Spoon the batter into the cupcake cases and bake for 20 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
We ate ours spread with some set honey…delicious.
