How To Make a Milkfree Carrot Cake

Updated on June 10, 2012

Lactose Intolerant ?

This is a remedy for those people who suffer from that malady! It is a pleasant tasting and a very popular line for me. Had to make 9 of these for various friends etc., all to be ready on Christmas Eve, it took some doing I can tell you as my oven is small and could only bake a cake at a time. Try it and watch as the cake disapears.

Actually make 2, but do not let them see the other!

Milk Free Carrot Cake


250g White Sugar

250ml Oil

3 Extra Large Eggs

Zest of half an Orange

100g Of Pecan Nuts

500ml Freshly Grated Carrots

Dry Ingredients

330ml Flour

2ml Salt

2ml Baking Powder

2ml Cinnamon

2ml Baking Soda


  1. Preheat the oven to 180┬░Celsius

  2. Grease a couple of small baking pans well

  3. Cream the sugar and oil.

  4. Add the eggs one by one to the mixture - blend well

  5. Sift the dry ingredients and add to the mixture - blend well

  6. Add the Zest and Pecan Nuts - blend well

  7. Add the carrots and mix until well blended.

  8. Pour the mixture into the baking pan/s.

  9. Bake in the centre of the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  10. Remove from the oven, place it on a cooling rack

  11. Remove from the baking pans after 15 minutes.

Once the cake has cooled down, you can add a touch of frosting to it.

Zest the rest of the orange and add some of the juice to a bowl, now mix some Icing Sugar with and mix until it is smooth and thick or thin enough to cover the top of the cake.

      You should put this on Wizzley. They have recipe capsules that print on cards: Here is my link and I have several recipes on there already.

      Marcy, I have created the Conversion Table on Hub as a lot of people from other Countries looked for the conversion tables.

      So you will find it there with all of other yummy, funny, picturesque and protests.

      This being the New Year, and once finished my relocation to another house will reorgainise my hubs.

      Thanks for dropping in and commenting, much appreciated.

      Do you have the US equivalents? This sounds yummy, and it seems like more and more people are lactose intolerant. Thanks for sharing!
