Carrot cake has been my cake of choice since I was a kid. Something about the unique taste and cream cheese frosting that is just perfect. Lucky enough my boyfriend feel exactly the same. I played with a way to make it gluten free and I think it came out great.
2 Large Carrots Grated
2 Cups White Rice Flour
2 Cups Sugar
1/2 Cups Oil
1 Tbs Cinnamon
1 tsbn Baking Soda
Whisk eggs and sugar together. Stir in remain ingredients and pour into a well greased spring pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 min. Allow to cool well and then remove from pan. Frost with any cream cheese frosting and enjoy.
I’m newer to the gluten free (well actually wheat free) world. My problem is that I’m also diabetic so many deserts won’t work for me ONLY being gluten free. My question is do you think this will work using Splenda instead of sugar? I’m with you, carrot cake is my favorite and even had it for our wedding cake (almost 22 years ago). I suppose I could just try it, huh? But thought maybe you’ve heard more? Thanks so much in advance for your help!
Slenda can almost always be substitutes in my recipes. Just cut the amount in half so that its not to sweet.
I am glad you are enjoying my recipes. Please feel free to contact me with any more questions as you play with more gluten free recipes.
Our son sent us the one of the food places in Tampa with gluten free. We live in Manatee county. That Taco Bus is a major hit with us! Always wanted to go there before but tried it since your blog and it’s heaven on earth…Yummy! Went to Burger21 and we loved it, although it is a little pricey. To show you how the wheat free thing has clicked in, though…just started it 6/3 and we did it for health reasons not allergic. The gluten free bun is good but a bit crumbly…still a whole lot of flavor. The burger was amazing….even though neither of us ate more than 1/2 of the bun. We’re so used to burgers without the bun that we like them better that way…slather them with a bunch of toppings and eat them with a fork…best yet! Soon, the Gourmet Pizza but they also shared that you can pick them up unbaked and bake them at home…we may do that on Wednesday for Thanksgiving since it’s our first wheat free one and the toppings for the pizzas really should be listed here…I love gourmet food and they aren’t kidding! Can hardly wait to try it! Thanks a bunch….that post also caused me to join your blog!
