Carrot-Apricot Swirls

Recipe by Lalaloula

I made these for Easter this year and was delighted at how moist and tasty they were. Instantly reminded me of summer. =)

I enjoyed making these very tasty treats! It took a little while to convert everything into units/measurements that I could handle, but I had fun with that part, too! Great, great warm temperature treats for the sweet tooth ~ really liked the combo of carrot & apricot, with the hint of almond! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean the carrots and then grate them coarsely. Put into a pan and add starch and 100g of the jam. Bring to a boil stirring constantly. Simmer for 2 minutes. Add almonds and set aside.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla sugar in a bowl. Add curd cheese, oil and milk and knead into a soft dough (using your mixer first and then your hands). Roll out onto a slightly floured surface and roll out into a rectangle.
  3. Spread the carrot-jam-mixture onto the dough. Roll up carefully starting from the long side.
  4. Cut the roll into 8-10 pieces and place onto a lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake at 190°C in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Heat rest of the jam (50g) and spread onto swirls when coming out of the oven.
  7. Serve hot or cold with whipped cream, ice-cream or plain.
