speckled carrot cake (vegan)

Speckled carrot/beetroot/vegetables cake, vegan

Who doesn’t know me has never sustained my attempts to enrich my vegetable cakes… with results I must admit from discouraging to uninteresting. Vegetables are full of water and often not enough tasty for pastry. Solution is simple indeed : you’ve got to realise a “speckled” cake ! 🙂

But what is a speckled cake ? That’s a cake realised with dried vegetables ! This give the cake a splecked appearance ! (idem for salted cakes)

Carrot and nuts cake

So, here’s a cake with almost 200% more carrots ! And if I’m not wrong, 20% less fat (you can go to 40% with no nuts ^^), and contains 4 times more fibers !

Ingredients :

  • 400g grated raw carrots or beets (or…)
  • 100g crushed walnut kernels (with beetshazelnuts)
  • 100g flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g oil
  • 100g soy yogurth (or silken tofu)
  • 1 packet of baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon (classical) or nutmeg (more “virile”), or some mix you like !

Preparation :

  1. Carrots dehydratation :
    1. If you have time and a drier, do it ! 😀
    2. If you have an oven, 120°C, 2 to 3h
    3. When carrots are dry, they are ready ! (somewhere between 65g and 100g, no need to weigh)
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl

Baking :

180°C, 1 hour, let cool before unmolding

    • Bonjour, de quelle mousse obtenue parlez-vous ? 🙂
      Pour le “sans gluten” on remplace souvent par une farine + une gomme, donc dans l’absolu, une farine + une gomme + de la mousse donnera une texture plus moelleuse : cela répond ?

  1. Bonjour
    Ma santé m’a obligé à exclure de mon alimentation , le gluten, les produits laitiers ( sauf beurre de bonne qualité de temps et temps ), les sucres ( peut utiliser le miel mais cuit éventuellement). Par quoi puis remplacer le sucre ?
    Purée de fruits ? Autres ingrédients ?
    Pas facile de faire de bons plats
    Merci à vous
