Recently, I ventured into various sweet preparations, especially for breakfast. I really liked this Breakfast Cake and used it as a guide to prepare others like the like the Coconut Cake Recipe with Ananas and Almonds.
The our used is wholemeal and the quantity used is very small, like that of butter. Instead it is very rich in carrots, pineapples, spices and nuts!

Carrot and Pineapple Cake has many ingredients but is very simple to prepare. I recommend you start to prepare all the necessary ingredients, so you have everything in hand to avoid confusion.

Preparation and Cooking Carrot and Pineapple Cake

Once you have prepared all the necessary ingredients you have to prepare on one side, all the dry elements excluding the oat flakes, and on the other, you will create a liquid mixture. Once ready both, start to incorporate the dry one in the wet one and at the end add the oats and then the walnuts. To cook it I used a terracotta mold for bread, which I lined with baking paper, but the normal mold for the plum cakes will be fine, lined with baking paper or buttered and floured. Given the particular humidity of the dough, the temperature will be higher and the cooking time will be longer. Once ready, let it cool in the mold for 10 minutes and then unmold it and finish cooling it on a ware rack.

Meanwhile prepare the yogurt cream by adding the maple syrup and pineapple water. Store it in the fridge until you serve the cake. If you love carrot cakes you can also try ours
