Healthy Cake’s for Dessert

I've got a very special carrot cake recipe to share. This recipe is special for a number of reasons. One reason, in my opinion, is the inclusion of delicious berries. In addition to that, this is a very healthy carrot cake recipe, so you can feel free to add a little extra to your plate! On top of that, this recipe is very easy to make and quite delicious.

 What you will need to make this carrot cake recipe: 

2 cups of whole wheat flour

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp of baking soda

2 tsp of ground cinnamon

1 tsp of ground ginger

1 tsp of allspice

1/4 tsp of salt

1 1/4 cups of water

1 1/4 cups of finely chopped dates

1/3 cup of thawed orange juice concentrate

1 cup of shredded carrots

1 cup of slivered almonds

1/2 cup of dried blueberries

1/2 cup of dried cranberries 



1.    Preheat your oven until it reaches a temperature of 350°F (180°C).

2.    Coat your baking pan with oil, butter or margarine.

3.    Bring the water to the boil in a saucepan.

4.    Add orange and dates into the saucepan, then remove the saucepan from the heat and let everything get to room temperature.

5.    Use a whisk to mix together each of your dry ingredients until they are evenly blended in a mixing bowl.

6.    Mix together all of the wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, until it is all of the same consistency.

7.    Pour this mixture into your greased baking pan and bake for 45-50 minutes.

You're in for a treat with this recipe. When you find yourself running to the store a few days later to make another batch of this healthy carrot cake recipe, don't say I didn't warn you!
