Carrot Cake (made with oat flour)

Oat flour is rich in soluble fibre and low in saturated fat. Carrot cake made with oat flour is a simple healthy treat which doesn’t taste any different than the kind of cake made with white flour.

Ingredients:

Powdered Oatmeal (Oat Flour) – 1 cup
Baking powder – 1 tsp
Grated Carrot – 1 cup
Crushed Pineapple – 1/4 cup (I used the canned one)
Egg (beaten) – 1
Oil – 2 tbsp
Sweetened Condensed Milk – 1/2 cup
Cinnamon – 1 tsp
Nutmeg – 1 tsp
Salt – a pinch

Step 1: Grab 2 separate bowls. In one, combine the dry ingredients. In the other, mix together the condensed milk, egg, and oil.

Step 2: Mix the wet and dry ingredients together. Now stir in the grated carrot and crushed pineapple.

Step 3: Bake for about 20 minutes or until done.

Allow it to cool and top with a little bit of cream. Optionally, dust a bit of coffee powder over the cream.

Note: The brown bubbles are actually due to a little bit of over-baking. Please ignore. 😛

Be careful to watch yours, to avoid this, or you could bake for an extra minute on top to get this look. 😉
