The best carrot cake I ever tasted was in Spain. In a bakery called Panaderia Pasteleria Y Cafeteria La Tahona in Alhaurin el Grande.

A lovely town in the South of Spain. We have visited this town many times when we go on vacation.

We would go to the Panaderia regularly for some coffee and tea and a boccadillo.

About a year ago a lovely lady Dinorah took over this bakery and she is one of the kindest people I ever met.

A couple of weeks ago we went to visit and got treated to the best carrot cake ever. We had it twice that week it was that good.

I asked for her recipe and she was kind enough to share it with me. I made a few small adjustments to but it tastes so good that I am in love with this cake.

How to make carrot cake

It contains not only grated carrots but also grated apple, rice flour, eggs, brown sugar, coconut oil, baking soda, and pecans.

To make this recipe add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine and stir and mix into a thick batter.

Preheat the oven to 370℉/180℃. Put the mixture in a springform and decorate with chopped pecans.  

Let the cake bake in the oven for about 45-50 minutes. Start to check around the 35-minute mark to see if the cake is done yet.

A bamboo skewer needs to come out clean. Then take it out of the oven as you do not want a dry cake. Sprinkle some powdered sugar on the cake.

Then take a bite in one of the most delicious cakes you have ever tried. Seriously follow this recipe and you will taste the best carrot cake in your life.

Of course, the best will be in the South of Spain but I guarantee this is a close second.
