Grated carrot
140 g
●Cake flour
100 g
●Strong bread flour
40 g
●Baking powder
3 g
40 g
Unsalted butter
100 g


1. Peel a carrot and grate it. Bring the butter to room temperature. Beat the eggs.
2. Combine cake flour, strong bread flour and baking powder. Sift together. Preheat the oven to 170℃.
3. Whip the softened butter with a whisk, add the sugar in 2 batches, and cream until the mixture turns whitish.
4. Add the eggs to Step 3 and beat.
5. Add the grated carrot to Step 4 and mix.
6. Add the ● dry ingredients, fold in gently by scooping up from the bottom. Do not stir too much to mix.
7. Pour the batter into a silicone mold once the flouriness is gone.
8. To make a dent in the middle, shift the dough from the middle to the sides with a rubber spatula. If you look at the shaped dough from the side, it's a smooth V shape.
9. Bake in a 170℃ preheated oven for 30 minutes. Insert a skewer, and if it comes out clean, it's done.
10. If you follow the instructions in Step 8, the cake will look pretty.
11. I put simmered sweet black beans inside. When you pour the dough into the mold, sprinkle them in 2 batches. I put 70 g in total. That's plenty.
