In this video, I will show you how to make a healthy carrot cake! This is the perfect homemade gift idea for your parents or your friends! I used sugar substitute (to save calories) but you can of course use regular sugar.
Ingredients
Wet ingredients
  Eggs 2
  Sugar substitute/Sugar 30 Gram (If using regular sugar, use 90 grams)
  Carrot 100 Gram
  Mixed dried fruits 70 Gram (raisins, pineapple, cranberries, orange peel (no sugar added))
  Walnuts 40 Gram
  Vegetable oil 120 Milliliter
Dry ingredients
  Cake flour 200 Gram
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Cinnamon powder 2 Teaspoon
  Ginger powder 1 Teaspoon
Directions

GETTING READY
1. Line the loaf pan with parchment paper.
2. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C or 338 degrees F .
3. Grate the carrot with a coarse grater (or in a processor if you have).
4. In a large bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together.

MAKING
5. In a bowl, beat eggs.
6. Add sugar and mix well.
7. Mix in the grated carrot, mixed dried fruit, and chopped walnuts.
8. Add the vegetable oil and mix well.
9. Add the sifted dry ingredients and fold in with a spatula.
10. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and smooth the top. Use the spatula to cut an incision lengthwise down middle of cake to prevent unwanted cracks on the surface.
11.Pop it in the oven and bake for 40-50 minutes.
12. Cover the cake with aluminum foil if it starts to brown too much.
13. Remove the cake from the pan and place it on a wire rack to cool.

SERVING
14. Slice and serve with a cup of coffee.
TIPS
When the cake is completely cool, wrap tightly in plastic wrap. It will last wrapped this way for few days (in the fridge).
You can also wrap each slices of pound cake individually with a plastic wrap.
