This is very different from an American carrot cake, but I prefer it. It is very easy and always surprises people. A great everyday cake.
- 4 -5 medium sized carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- Preheat the oven to 375.
- In a blender combine eggs, sugar, oil, and carrots. Blend on high until all is combined and is a pureed mixture.
- Combine the blended mixture with the flour in a bowl. Mix in the baking powder.
- Pour batter into a cake pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out dry.
- Meanwhile make the Chocolate Glaze.
- Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until it begins to boil, stirring constantly. It should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
- When the cake is done let it cool. Once it is cool to touch, pour the chocolate glaze over it and let it harden a bit.
- Serve and enjoy.
