Carrot Coconut Cake

Salah satu bahan makanan yang selalu ada di dapurku adalah wortel. Anak-anakku suka banget, baik mateng maupun mentahnya. kali ini pengen nyoba dibikin cake...cari resep yang mudah aja, dari buku resep untuk anak-anak...karena sekolah anakku nut free zone, jadi aku skip kacangnya ... hasilnya enak, rasa coconut, orange, dan cinnamonnya dominan, jadi ga berasa carrotnya sama sekali...





225 gr carrots
225 gr self raising flour and 2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
140 gr brown sugar (aku hanya pake 120 gr)
Grated zest of 1 orange
2 tsp ground cinnamon
115 gr chopped roasted hazelnuts or walnuts (aku skip)
55 gr desiccated coconut
2 large eggs
150 ml sunflower oil
juice of 1 orange




  1. Set the oven. Grease the cake tin. Cut out a circle of baking parchment the same size as the tin and cover the base with it.
  2.  Peel the carrots and trim off their tops. Grate them using a grater or food processor.
  3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Mix in the carrots, salt, sugar, orange zest, cinnamon, nuts, and coconut.
  4. Beat the eggs. Add the eggs, sunflower oil and orange juice to the cake mixture and mix everything together well.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the cake tin. Bake it for 60 to 75 minutes until a skewer pushed into the centre comes out clean.
  6. Leave the cake to cool in the tin for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove it from the tin and put it on a wire rack to finish cooling.
