Despite the snow that we have been getting this week here in southern Indiana – it is officially springtime! This carrot cake is perfect for springtime gatherings such as Easter or mothers day and with the carbs super low, it would also be a great anytime treat!


For the cake:-:

1/2 cup erythritol (granular or confectioners)
5 tbsp butter softened
4 large eggs
2 tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/2 cup carrot (about 1 large carrot) finely grated

For Cream Cheese Frosting:-:

4 oz cream cheese softened
2 tbsp butter softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Confectioners Erythritol
1/4 cup Pecans chopped (optional for garnish)



For the Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9″ cake pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the erythritol and butter until fluffy.
  • Beat the eggs in, then the almond milk and vanilla.
  • Next, beat in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and spices.
  • Fold in the shredded carrot and mix just until it is well integrated into the batter.
  • Transfer to prepared pan and bake for 18-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool completely before frosting.


    For Cream Cheese Frosting:

    • In a medium bowl, beat the butter and cream cheese until smooth and uniform. Add the erythritol and vanilla and continue mixing. Add the heavy cream and stir until you have a smooth frosting. Add more heavy cream 1/2 tbsp at a time if your frosting is too thick.
    • When the cake is completely cool, top with the frosting and chopped pecans if desired.
