Gluten Free Flourless Carrot Cake#BundtBakers

There is a bite of goodness in every piece of cake that you enjoy. This cake is so light, moist and nutty. Made this cake with Cashew Meal.. you have read it correctly cashew meal. So easy to make. 

Not like Almond Meal, wherein it requires soaking, peeling and drying. There is no such process in making cashew meal, more so ever this is widely and easily available all over India and comparatively cheaper too. You can substitute this for any recipe that calls for Almond Meal

In this recipe I left it coarse and did not sieve it to make cashew flour. But if you wish you sieve it to get a fine powder / flour. Read the process carefully before you began to make it or else it turn to cashew butter.

Cashew flour is used in gluten-free cooking and baking. Since it is free of gluten, it can be used in much the same way almond flour or almond meal is used in cookies, muffins, and breads.

When Stacy our Host for this month's  Bundt Bakers asked us to bake a gluten free cake.  I, was very happy since this cake was on my to do list.  

In India, we get beautiful sweet, soft and juicy reddish pink carrots in winter.  These are apt for making a cake or sweet dishes.

Another note of caution when making this cake, please do not try to over turn this cake.  It just slipped off my mind that I, should not overturn this cake and it broke at the bottom.  Flourless cakes should not be overturned.  Slice them in the pan itself and then serve.  

If you  make it in a bundt pan use a loose bottom pan,  angel pan or any other loose bottom pan.  Most of all do not forget to warp the bottom with a aluminum foil right up to rim.  Since this batter is wet and slightly watery it will leak from the bottom and will cause fire in oven, so be very very cautious.  Place this pan in a tray and then bake.

140 Grams Grated Carrot- this weight is after grating
125  Grams Cashew Meal -  see recipe below
110 Grams  Brown Sugar
3 Small Eggs
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts 
1/4 Cup Oil
1/2 Teaspoon Level Baking powder
1/4 Teaspoon Level Baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder
1/2 Teaspoon Ginger powder
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
A Pinch of Nutmeg powder.

In the cashew meal  mix in  cinnamon. nutmeg,ginger, baking  soda and baking powder.   Keep aside.
In a bowl, break the eggs, add the oil and essence and whisk till nice and frothy. 
Now add the sugar and continue whisking for 2 minutes.  Use a spatula and fold  in the cashew mix and carrot till well incorporated.   Sorry do no have a pic of the batter since my camera battery died down.

Pour this in an well greased bundt pan and bake in a preheated oven  at 180 degrees,  set the timer for 30 minutes. Leave this in the hot oven for 5 minutes. Take it our and let it cool overnight and then serve it the next day.  

Hubby and I enjoyed  this cake, a goodness in every bite.. awesome..
 Please to do frost this cake with cream cheese or anything else, it ruin the actual taste to this cake.
 Some cakes need to enjoyed just how they are.
How to Make Cashew Meal / Flour
Take the cashew nuts into a food processor or high-powered blender and pulse it at intervals until they're coarse and crumbly, but just make sure to stop before it turns to cashew butter.
The slightly coarse one is is cashew meal and for cashew flour this is fine just sieve it in a fine atta / flour sieve .. that's it ... cashew meal /cashew flour is ready to use.
