The tastiest carrot cake you will ever try but without all the calories . Try it ! you'll love it !
Whisk dry ingredients together in a bowl except the nuts.
Combine sugar and oil. Add eggs, vanilla essence and lemon rind. Mix well. Add carrots. Scrape bowl and mix well again.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and slowly mix until combined. Add ground coconut.
Pour batter into a greased and floured 12 x 23 loaf tin. I also cut a sheet of baking paper to fit in the bottom of the tin to ensure the cake does not stick.
Sprinkle nuts over the top of the cake mixture.
Bake at 180C for 40-45mins.
Whilst the cake is cooling down, in a bowl mix the juice of 1 whole lemon and a teaspoon of castor sugar, mix till dissolved and then pour over warm cake.
It's now ready to serve. Enjoy !
I have tried many variations of carrot cake and this is the best combination I have found that is tasty without the calories of butter and frosting.
I wouldn't recommend adding pineapple though.
