  3. Add the grated carrots, then add the almond flour and gluten-free flour mixture and stir. The dough should be thick but very fluid. If it is too thick, add the remaining 60ml of almond milk or 60 ml.
  4.  If you want to add walnuts, add them at this time and stir. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until they are deep golden brown and the toothpick in the center gets out clean. Pressing the top shouldn’t make it feel too fluffy, so don’t be afraid to overcook it. ! It takes longer to bake a gluten-free mixture cake.

You have a variety of icing options that you can add for toppings. Hope you enjoy this delicious carrot cake.
