Carrot Poundcake

Carrot Poundcake

Using a whole carrot, I made a vegetable pound cake that you can also eat for breakfast ︎
It has no butter in it.

Ingredients: 1 pound cake

1 small
Vegetable oil
70 cc
Soft light brown sugar or brown sugar ( or caster sugar, etc)
100 g
Cake flour
100 g
Baking powder
1 teaspoon
Cinnamon powder (you can omit this if you're making the cake for kids)
1 teaspoon


1. Grate the carrot. Sift the dry ingredients. Preheat the oven to 170℃. Slice the banana.
2. Beat the eggs in a bowl, add the vegetalbe oil little by little and mix well. Add the sugar and mix well.
3. Add the dry ingredients in 2〜3 batches and fold them in with a rubber spatula. Add the grated carrot and mix.
4. Pour the batter into the poundcake pan. Drop the pan onto a counter top 2 3 times to remove any air pockets. Place the sliced banana on top, and bake for 45 minutes at 170℃ to finish.
5. In our family, it's my son's job to grate the carrot. It's a great way to let your kids help out in the kitchen.
