Let's prepare a sugar-free carrot cake. Light sweets are increasingly present in our day to day because we seek to follow a diet as healthy as possible, however, it is not always easy to make them because we are very used to the taste of sugar. Luckily, we have a wide variety of sweeteners and sweeteners that allow us to make sweets in a healthier way. We can also use some fruits and spices to give flavor without adding sugar. In short, there are many substitutes for sugar that we can currently find.
To prepare this carrot cake we have used coconut sugar, which is healthier and is another alternative to ordinary sugar. It is a natural sweetener with a very low glycemic index that can even be used to sweeten a coffee. The amount needed is equivalent to that of sugar, although it is true that we can add a little less coconut sugar. You can also use another sweetener that you have at home adding the necessary amount so that the dough is to your liking. Without further delay, discover in RecipesFree how to make carrot cake without sugar.

- 200 grams of coconut sugar
- 3 eggs
- 150 milliliters of sunflower oil
- 1 sachet of chemical yeast or baking powder (15 g)
- 1 tablespoon baking soda

Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Preheat the oven to 180 ºC with heat up and down. Grate the carrots and reserve them. In case you want to make a carrot cake without sugar or sweeteners, we recommend adding 1 ripe banana to provide that touch of sweetness. In that case, you must peel and crush it without actually crushing it completely.
Beat the eggs with the coconut sugar until fully integrating these ingredients. Then, add the oil and mix.
Trick: If you do not have sunflower oil you can use 100 ml of olive oil.
Mix the flour with the yeast, salt and baking soda and sift. Incorporate this mixture into the dough little by little so that everything is well integrated.
Trick: It is important to sift the dry ingredients so that the sugar-free carrot cake is as fluffy as possible.
Add cinnamon and grated carrots and add them to the dough with a spatula or spoon. If you have used banana instead of sugar, add it now too.
Trick: Optionally, you can add chopped nuts.
Grease the pan with oil and, if it is flat-based, line it with baking paper. Pour the dough and Bake the carrot cake without sugar for 40 minutes. Keep in mind that the final cooking time will depend on each oven, so that after 30 minutes it begins to monitor it to prevent it from burning.
Trick: Our mold is 20 cm in diameter.
As we said, after about 30 minutes prick the cake with a toothpick to see if it's done or needs more time; if it comes out dry it will be ready, if not you should leave it a few more minutes until it is cooked. When it is, take it out, wait for it to warm slightly to remove it from the mold, and let it cool on a rack.
These biscuits are usually covered with a cream cheese or a sugar glaze. However, since we are making a lighter sponge cake, we will also make a lighter coverage. To do this, put a little milk in a bowl and mix it with corn flour until the flour dissolves (you can temper the milk a little, so it will thicken better). Add a few drops of sweetener and a little lemon zest or lemon juice (optional).
Bathe the cake with this mixture and you will have a rich cake with a great look. You can now enjoy your sugar-free carrot cake recipe!
