Almonds, orange and carrots cake

Almonds, orange and carrots cake
This cake reminds me of childhood and when I saw this recipe online, I decided to try it immediately! It is easy, healthy and incredibly delicious. I took inspiration from this website  https://www.sicilianicreativiincucina.it/torta-di-carote-mandorle-e-arance/?lang=en and I adjusted it a bit with some of our products
Ingredients:
  • FOR A MOLD BY 22-24 CENTIMETERS (ALSO DONUT) OR 15 MUFFIN:
  • 250 grams of carrots (net weight without skin)
  • 200 grams of caster sugar
  • 100 grams of peeled almonds
  • 200 grams of flour for cakes (If you don't want to use the almonds used only 280 grams of flour )
  • 50 ml sunflower oil 
  • grated rind of one organic Orange
  • 25 ml of orange juice
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 16 grams of baking powder
  • a pinch of cinnamon (Optional)
  • a pinch of salt
  • butter and flour for the cake Pan

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static.

Grease and flour the mold you've chosen: zipper closure, a ring or portion. Only the buttered muffin cups should not be nor floured.

 

Blend in the mixer the almonds with 30 grams of sugar: set aside.

In the mixer, blend the carrots with the sunflower oil, the orange zest and orange juice.

With an electric mixer, 4 in a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, salt (and cinnamon). You will need to obtain a whitish, puffy and fluffy and it will take 10-15 minutes. Add to this the almond flour mixture and continue to whisk, then the carrots. Finally, with the help of a spatula, combine the flour with the baking powder little at a time.

Buon appetito!!
