Tips & tricks for baking carrot cake in the Thermomix

To make your carrot cake or carrot cake in the Thermomix even better, follow these short but effective tips:

  • Grate finely: Let the Thermomix use the WunderSlicer to finely grate the carrots for an even texture.
  • Add orange peel: A little grated orange peel gives the cake a fresh touch.
  • Vary Nuts: Experiment with toasted walnuts, pecans, or almonds for additional flavors.
  • Adjust spices: Enrich the dough with a pinch of ginger or cardamom for a spicy depth.
  • For juiciness: A few tablespoons of applesauce or chopped pineapple pieces make the cake particularly juicy.
  • Monitor baking time: Check the cake before the end of the baking time to avoid overdrying.
  • Allow to cool completely: Allow the cake to cool completely before frosting.
  • Decorate according to a theme: Adapt the decoration to occasions such as Easter, for example with marzipan carrots.

These tips will help you bake a memorable and customized carrot cake.

Carrot muffins - the creative & small alternative

If you're looking for a smaller but just as delicious option, carrot muffins are just the thing for you. To do this, simply divide the dough evenly into a muffin tin . These smaller treats don't need that long in the oven - 20 to 25 minutes at 180°C should be enough until they are wonderfully golden brown and baked through. Check if they are ready with a wooden stick; it should come out clean when you pierce the center of a muffin. These muffins are perfect for on the go, as a sweet snack or as a highlight at brunch. Best enjoyed fresh and perhaps even with a dollop of cream cheese topping for the ultimate taste experience.
