I had the best carrot cake in Spain in a bakery Panaderia Pasteleria Y Cafeteria La Tahona from Dino Dulce in Alhaurin el Grande. A lovely town in the South of Spain. We have visited this town many time when we go on vacation.

The best carrot cake ingredients

We would go to the Panaderia 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 adjustment to but it tastes so good that I am in love with this cake.

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

Leave it in the oven for about 45-50 minutes but start to check around the 35 minute mark to see if it done yet. You do not want a dry cake. Then take a bite in one of the most delicious cakes you have ever tried.
