We all enjoy a slice of cake as often as we can. However, you’re either staying away from sugar for health or personal reasons and it becomes hard to enjoy something sweet. Our no-sugar carrot cake is everything you love without that pesky sugar making you sick or guilty. It’s the carrot cake texture you love with a whipped cream filling and topping, perfect for any occasion.

No-sugar carrot cake tips

When grating the carrots, make sure to use the grater side with the smallest holes for a better texture. The rest of the dough is easy to mix and you can bake as many layers as you want to. However, make sure to adjust your baking time. The no-sugar carrot cake is ready when a knife or toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean. Decorate with some grated cinnamon and whipped cream but you can also add various crushed nuts if you’re feeling creative.
