Gluten Free Carrot Cake

By Matthewspuzzle @matthewspuzzle

For this past Easter I decided to make a gluten free carrot cake. I adore a moist cake and carrot cakes never fail to provide a delicious end to any meal. My favorite carrot cake is full of coconut, pineapple, walnuts and cinnamon. I wanted to recreate that with a gluten free cake, so I of course opted to use King Arthur Gluten Free Flour. To me, this makes the best cakes. We have found that if we take very simple precautions our cake will stay moist and delicious for days, unlike most other cakes made with someone else’s flour blends.
