Carrot Cake Brazilian style




I bought a 12 friand moulds from Melbourne ( there was 30% discount otherwise i will not buy due to high conversion ^_^) and have been searching for a recipe to try out this new mould. I saw this simple carrot cake in Tanja's blog and i immediately tried out using this new mould.

Just few ingredients and don't need a mixer to do the job, the outcome was quite impressed..similar like muffin texture, carrot taste was not strong..but beautiful golden orange colour..

First I use a food processor to process carrot till coarsely then only transfer to blender to blend it till finely..

I reduced the sugar from 300g to 200g but still taste a bit sweet...that's why i omitted to dust icing sugar on top of the cake..

Lovely friands. I bought my friands mould from Melbourne too.

lena said...

i saw some friands mould too in queen vic market the last trip i went there but i didnt get those moulds, they look very simple and quite different from what i see you got here so i ended up never buying them.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sonia,

Can I enquire how long is the baking time for this friand mould? I presumed the 35-40 mins baking time as stated refers to baking with the 26cm ring pan right?

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Janice, sorry did not mentioned clearly , I bake for 30mins.

Yee's Corner said...

wow...so cute & look tasty! I can feel my hand was stretching over to pick one!haha... btw without reading the text i thought they were kuih bahulu! since they were made of 350g of carrot it should be considered a healthier diet for me & my 2 kids (who are not so keen on eating VEGGIES)! I must try this recipe too!

Janice.
