This is a carrot cake you have never had before. Please try this Brazilian Carrot Cake Recipe, It’s so fluffy and delicious!
This recipe is made with a blender, so let your KitchenAid rest for a bit 😉
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CAKE:
– 1/2 cup of oil
– 3 or 4 medium carrots cut into thick slices
– 4 eggs
– 2 cups of sugar
– 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon of baking powder
HOW TO MAKE IT:
Preheat your oven to 350F.
In the blender add oil, eggs and carrots and mix it for a minute or so until it completely mixed (no chunks) then add sugar and beat it for another minute.
Now add half of flour and pulse it a couple times (it might be hard on your blender so if you want you can help with a spatula mixing a bit then blend the rest).
Add the rest of the flour and repeat the process.
Pour the batter into a clean bowl and add baking powder. With a spatula mix it well but always careful not to over mix it, just be very gentle.
On a baking pan spray cooking spray and sprinkle flour all over it then pour your cake batter into it and if needed gently hit the baking sheet on your counter to level the cake.
Into the oven it goes for about 40 minutes.
Once your cake is done then it’s time for the chocolate glaze (don’t make the glaze before because it will thicken up pretty quickly)
INGREDIENTS FOR THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE:
– 1 1/2 tablespoon of butter
– 1 1/2 cups of sugar
– 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder (you can use regular chocolate powder, it just won’t be as dark)
– 5 tablespoons of milk
– Chocolate sprinkles to decorate
HOW TO MAKE IT:
In a pan add all ingredients and let it cook on medium heat on your stove ALWAYS mixing it. Once it starts boiling let it cook for another 1 to 2 minutes and it’s ready.
I like getting a wooden skewer and making holes all over my cake so the glaze can fall into the middle of my cake.
Pour the glaze still hot all over your cake. You can use the back of a spoon to help spread the glaze.
Cover it with chocolate sprinkles and your cake is ready!
