ingredients for carrot gateau with walnuts


1. Peel a clean carrot and rub it through a fine grater. If you have a blender, then try to grind the grated carrots with it.

2. We also chop the walnut either with a knife or a blender. Add honey, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar and nuts to the carrots. Instead of vanilla sugar, you can take vanilla essence. Mix the mass until smooth.

3. Sift the dry mixture to the carrot. Never refuse a sieve, as a biscuit with additives comes out dense. The sifted flour is saturated with oxygen molecules, so the cooked pastries are airy. Break up air bubbles with a whisk. The carrot batter should be quite thick, but don't be intimidated by this. It will rise during the baking process.

4. If you use a form of heat-resistant glass, then cover the form with baking paper. For a silicone mold, this condition is not necessary. We distribute the dough according to the form and send it to a hot oven at 180 degrees. Record the time 40-45 minutes.
