My Paleo Carrot Cake is another of those amazing moist cakes made with fruits or vegetables. My three big winner are always a banana cake, carrot cake and a lumberjack cake (apple and date). They keep moist and age wonderfully over a few days.
Do you remember eating wheat in must meals? I did. Often I would have weetbix or toast for breakfast and then keep eating wheat based snacks and bread all day and often pasta for dinner. I came up with my 5 simple steps to eat less wheat. Following these steps I have cut most wheat out of my diet. I have stopped eating any cakes, desserts or snack that use any wheat as a way of cutting back on so much wheat in my diet. Eclipse Organics created this All Purpose Paleo Flour which is just nuts, seeds with some tapioca. Today I have converted my favourite Moist Carrot Cake recipe over to this paleo version.

This moist Paleo Carrot Cake is one of the new snacks I have started to created with a focus on nutrition.Here is why nutrition density of food so important to being healthy?

Paleo Carrot Cake
- Preheat the oven to 170 degC. Line a 21cm round cake tin or a 20cm loaf tin with baking paper.
- Mix the All Purpose Paleo Flour, salt and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Grate the carrots and set aside.
- Put the Coconut Sugar into the bowl of a cake mixer and crack in the eggs. Beat well to dissolve the sugar in the egg. Add the flour mixture and beat well for about one minute. Let it sit for another minute or two. Note: This mixture will thicken after a few minutes. Add the carrot and the apple cider vinegar and beat these in at a medium speed. The mixture will turn pale and fluff up slightly as the vinegar reacts with the bicarb soda.
- Pour the cake batter into the cake tin and put it into the oven right away. Bake for 35 minutes at 170 degC or until golden brown.
- Once cooked, allow the cake to cool for 5 minutes before turning it out onto a cake rack to cool completely.
- Eat the cake just as it is or ice with a Lemon Cashew Butter Icing.
