Today was my husband and I's anniversary. He loves carrot cake, so I wanted to surprise him with his favorite cake. If I made regular carrot cake, he'd be the only one that could eat it. That wouldn't be any fun, so I searched for a gluten free version. I decided to try the Gluten Free Carrot Cake recipe posted on the Betty Crocker website. The result was so delicious. Even my husband was amazed that it was a gluten free cake. He said it was the best that I've ever made.
The base of the cake is the Betty Crocker® Gluten Free yellow cake mix, and you just add shredded carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg, and walnuts. I shredded up some baby carrots in my Ninja QB900B Master Prep Revolutionary Food and Drink Maker, Gray
for the cake. After reading through the recipe reviews, I decided to add 1/2 cup of applesauce to the recipe to add moisture. We also also like coconut, so I added a 1/2 cup of coconut as well. The box says to bake it in a 9x9 pan, but I was able to make two small 8inch circle layer cakes. I topped the cake with the Betty Crocker® cream cheese icing.
