If you are looking for an easy and healthy carrot cake recipe with cream cheese frosting, you just found it. This cake is moist and utterly delicious. You do not need fancy equipment to make this recipe. This carrot cake is made from scratch. Homemade is best, right?
I absolutely love carrot cake! Unfortunately, most recipes I have tried are time-consuming and complicated. My skills in the kitchen are simple. Because of this, I prefer recipes that are not complicated. Sometimes I hack recipes to make them quick and easy without sacrificing the taste. However, that takes a bit of practice. After a few adjustments, the end result usually makes me very happy.
The frosting spreads pretty thin. I like a lot of frosting. Therefore, to satisfy my sweet tooth, I make a double batch. I'll leave this up to you to decide.
I prefer to use flours from Anita's Organic Mill. To be honest, I just love everything about this company. They have a great variety of flours. I purchase them at my local grocer. When I make this carrot cake, I use Anita's spelt flour. I do not have to make any adjustments to the measurement when substituting regular white flour with spelt flour.

Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C).
Keep the eggs at room temperature. Whisk them with a hand blender until they are double the volume. Add sugar and continue to whisk until the mass is smooth and fluffy.
Still whisking at high speed, slowly pour the oil, then transfer into a bowl. Add in the grated carrots, pineapple, walnuts, coconut and mix gently.
Transfer the dough into a 9 inch (24cm) cake pan lined with baking paper. Bake for 1 hour or an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Let the cake cool completely before covering it with frosting.
Store cake in the fridge.
