Gluten Free Carrot Cake

So, I’m waiting for some results but it’s likely I am gonna need to be gluten free from now on…and I miss cake soooo bad!!!!
So, today I made my first attempt at a gluten free cake!!!! And it didn’t turn out to bad!!!

And whilst it isn’t quite like the real thing, it’s pretty yummy!!!
So the recipe is as follows

300g of fresh carrots ½ grated roughly and ½ grated finely
200g ground almonds
200g sugar
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 teaspoons of baking powder (gluten free)
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons of ground ginger

1 – pre heat oven to 180C
2 – put grated carrot in a bowl and pour over sugar, mix until all the sugar is combined.
3 – Mix in almond powder cinnamon, ginger and baking powder
4 – Add in the eggs, and mix until combined
5 – Pour into a well greased loaf tin, and bake for about 40mins or until the centre is firm to touch.
6 – Cool completely before taking out of the tin.
7 – Either sprinkle with icing sugar or make some cream cheese frosting using cream cheese, butter and icing sugar.

Hope you enjoy it, and find it yummy!!!
