Carrot cake with caramel


1,5 hours


8-10 servings



My very first try of carrot cake was in Barcelona in long-ago 2014. It was in Starbucks. With every bite I felt how a caramel, spicy, nutty flavor unrolls in my mouth, and carrot added juicy texture without adding any syrups.


It made quite an impression on me, so I really wanted to treat everyone at home with such a cake.

Method of cooking

Sift the dry ingredients.

Prepare a cake mold 22-24 cm in diameter. Grease the form with butter and sprinkle with flour.

Whip sugar with oil, add eggs one by one, whip well again.

Gradually add the dry ingredients, constantly stirring with a whisk.

Then add grated carrots, zent and nuts.

Pour the mix in a mold. Bake for 40 minutes at 180°C, check with a skewer for readiness. It may take longer to bake – it depends on your oven.

Get the cake from the mould and let it cool.

Prepare caramelized pecans.

In a saucepan, melt 100 gr of sugar till it gets a rich caramel color, add fried pecans, stir intensively so that each nut is covered with caramel.

Pour the mass onto a silicone mat, flatten, let it cool.

Prepare carrots for decoration. Using a vegetable peeler, cut the carrots into thin slices, get as much slices as you want.

Cook them in a syrup of water and sugar (100 gr of sugar and 100 gr of water) for 15 minutes after boiling.

Place boiled carrot slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake for 15 minutes at 170°C. With the help of sushi sticks, form spirals and bake for another 15 minutes.

Pour caramel over the cake and decorate with nuts and carrots.
