Carrot cake

Do you like the carrot juice? I simply love it, but what do you do with the pulp that  remains after the extraction of the juice? Please do not tell me that you are throwing it away! You may at least put it in the compost. Or, I have a better idea, use it in a cake. I made before a bread with the same carrot pupl, do you remember? Look at it here. But now it is not about a bread, is about a cake, again with no sugar. Carrots are sweet and to add more sweetness I have used 100ml of maple syrup. You can use also honey if you prefer.
This cake is perfect to have it with you as a snack during the day in the office. My daughter asked for a piece every day for her snack at kindergarten.

  • 250g grated carrots (or the pulp that remains after extracting the juice out of carrots)
  • 60g walnuts + some for decoration (I used 16)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 125g butter (room temperature)
  • 200g all purpose flour
  • 100g maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  1. Beat the eggs, with syrup with a mixer.
  2. Add butter, cinnamon, baking powder, flour and mix.
  3. Add walnuts and carrots and mix well.
  4. Pour the composition in a pan.
  5. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven at 180ºC.
