Carrot Tea Cake

Today’s recipe is from Martha Stewart Living magazine. Easy, fast, tasty. Easy to make with all ingredients mixed in one bowl and quick to bake in just 30 minutes. With very little sugar, the sweetness of this cake comes from naturally sweet carrots. Full of flavor and very moist, this recipe is a keeper! Perfect party pleaser!! Springtime luncheon?! Daffodils are popping up!!

Yields: 10-12

  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, softened, plus more for mold
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for mold
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup packed peeled grated carrots (4 to 5 carrots)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, toasted, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-inch (5-cup) trois freres mold or Bundt pan. Dust with flour, and tap out excess. Put butter and brown sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla and carrots, and mix until just combined. Reduce speed to low. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Mix until just combined. Stir in walnuts.
  3. Pour batter into the prepared mold. Bake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool in pan on a wire rack 15 minutes. Turn out cake onto rack, and let cool completely. Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.
