Egg Free Carrot Cake Recipe

Heirloom Carrot and Mandarin Cake (Egg Free)

Egg Free Carrot Cake Recipe

Egg Free Carrot Cake Recipe


This is a VERY simple recipe, it is quick to prepare and is moist and sweet. Just stir to mix, add to a cake tin and bake!  It is a perfect chilly autumn morning snack with a warm cup of tea.

I made this cake with grated purple heirloom carrots we collected from the farmers market last week. The recipe will work with any sort of carrots they don’t have to be purple ones 🙂 I just love the vibrant color and sweetness of these ones at the moment.

Mr Fresh dislikes any type of cake icing so there is no inclusion of icing in this recipe (or likely to be in any others sorry!)


Makes: 1 cake (21cm tin)

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 40-45 minutes


  • 2 cups of grated carrot
  • 2 cups of self raising flour
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup of olive oil
  • 2/3 cup of yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 mandarin skin very finely chopped


  1. Turn the oven on to heat to 160 degrees

  2. Add to a bowl all of the ingredients and mix to combine

  3. Line a cake tin with non stick baking paper and pour in to cake mixture

  4. Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes

  5. Test for readiness by inserting a knife or skewer. When it removes cleanly the cake is ready

  6. Cool on a cake rack for 10 minutes before slicing to serve dust with icing sugar to look pretty (I forgot to do that)

    You know what Kyrstie, the comment for the cake is “divine”! Everybody at the daycare was asking the recipe. Hope you don’t mind I share with them. I made another one on weekend. It is again “divine”. Thank you so much! BTW, I used normal carrot. The cake was golden in color, very attempting.
