  1. Preheat oven to 160C.

    2.  Place almonds in mixing bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 9 or until milled – if you are in tune with your Thermomix you can hear when most milling, chopping, grating is done). 

    3.  Add carrots and grate 5 sec/speed 6 – it will mix with the almond meal.  Scrape down the sides.

    4.  Add eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, oil and honey and mix 15 sec/speed 5.

    5.  Add baking powder and combine 5 sec/speed 5.

    6.  Add sultanas and mix on Reverse 5 sec/speed 4

    7.  Pour into a prepared 20 centimetre baking tin and bake for one hour to 1½ hours, or until cooked through. Cover if necessary with foil.

    8.   Remove from oven and cool completely in the tin, then turn out.

    9.   Serve alone or topped with thick natural yoghurt, or a topping of your choice. It keeps in the fridge for up to five days.

  • Loz24: Sesame oil is an extremely strong flavoured...

    Submitted by veggiedelights on 21. February 2021 - 09:48.

    Loz24: Sesame oil is an extremely strong flavoured oil- as you are probably aware it is only used a tablespoon at a time in Asian/Indian recipes. 60g would have tasted awful.
    It was definitely the oil and not the recipe that turned out badly. I guarantee that if you try this again with the correct oil (even coconut oil makes a fine substitute) you will not fail again. Then you may be able to adjust your 1 star rating to a more accurate 5 stars tmrc_emoticons.;-)
    I've been making this cake for years and everyone who tries it asks for the recipe. Happy cooking!
    Thank you Penny for converting this recipe for the Thermomix tmrc_emoticons.-)

  • I didn't have macadamia or walnut oil so...

    Submitted by Loz24 on 31. January 2021 - 09:03.

    I didn't have macadamia or walnut oil so substituted it with sesame oil after doing some googling. Ended up having it with lashings of cream as it was pretty terrible, threw it in the bin after we had both tasted it - not sure whether how bad it was was down to the sesame oil or recipe in general.

    I’ve been making Theresa Cutter’s original version of this for years. It’s a freezer staple in our house. So pleased to see it converted for the Thermomix. This is exactly as the original. Thank you.

    Submitted by Tziv on 9. August 2017 - 10:47.

    Delicious! I doubled the cinnamon and used stevia powder instead of honey and added 1 cup of almond milk to compensate. Also added 2 tbsp ground flax for added fibre. Will be making these often. Thanks!

  • Quite nice flavours! I added

    Submitted by Persistenttiger on 5. August 2014 - 21:03.

    Quite nice flavours! I added two tablespoons of cornflour, as I normally find almond cakes stay a bit too moist. It worked really well! Calories were 489 per 1/8 of the cake.

  • Utterly delicious carrot cake

    Submitted by Des123 on 6. September 2013 - 16:38.

    Utterly delicious carrot cake - it falls into the 'can't believe it's gluten free' category. I added extra chopped walnuts to the mix.

    Best carrot cake I've ever had. Moist and delicious and a total bonus that it is healthy too. My 3 preschool kids just devoured it.

  • It's a great cake, you could

    Submitted by penny.dbt on 19. September 2012 - 15:36.

    It's a great cake, you could try cranberries instead of sultanas, or just leave them out.
