In this instructable I will show you how you can make my favorite carrot cake. This carrot cake is sweet and moist and rich and delicious. So, a must try recipe.

I have learned how to make this cake in a Spanish bakery. It does not only contain grated carrots, but also grated apple, rice flour, eggs, brown sugar, coconut oil, baking soda and pecans.

Leave the cake in the oven for about 45-50 minutes but start to check around the 35 minute mark to see if it done yet. You do not want a dry cake. Then take a bite in one of the most delicious cakes you have ever tried.
