GF Zucchini Carrot Cake

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 12:00 AM

Yes it looks amazing doesn't it!  And we can call it healthy can't we?!  After all it is loaded with veggies, and the flour and sugar well they are not the main attraction haha although anthing other than this frosting may not be worth the discussion!

I borrowed and adapted this recipe from You can use their recipe if you want to but because I have to convert everything over to gluten free- it was just my guide.  Aside from that I am totally incapable of following a recipe!  

To begin you will need to get your veggies shredded so they can lose some of their water content.  So whichever way you choose to shred your veggies put them in a strainer to drain while you get the rest of the cake prepped.   I used the Blue Nile Spiral Slicer as seen in the video below- what an awesome tool!

What an awesome tool! 

What a fun tool to play with your food! I had the chance to use the spiral slicer that I hear so much about and yup it is as fun as it looks! I had some trouble with


hard veggies like potatoes but carrots and zucchini were a breeze! With all the zuchini that comes from the garden even if I use it just for that to make pasta, cupcakes, bread and pancakes that it is worth it really. This was a fun cake I was testing to use up the the rest of my zuchini in the garden and really you can only eat so much ratatouille in a summer.. haha

What I love about it is :



EASY-TO-USE INGENIOUS DESIGN. Hand held plastic vegetable cutter with two blade sizes. Use a simple turning motion (just like sharpening a pencil) to instantly turn boring vegetables into irresistable curly veggie treats. Easy and safe to operate, no machine to set up. Dishwasher safe & easy to clean, small enough to fit into your kitchen drawer.

PERFECT FOR CARROTS, ZUCCHINI, CUCUMBER, TURNIPS & SWEET POTATOES. Spiralize endless Julienne strips of carrots, zucchini, cucumber and all kinds of other firm vegetables for low carb, healthy vegetable meals. Simply the best vegetable pasta slicer available.

STAINELESS STEEL VEGETABLE SPIRALIZER WITH SPECIAL JAPANESE BLADES - TWO SUPER SHARP JULIENNE SIZES - 2mm x 3mm and 3.5mm x 5mm. Perfect sizes to create vegetable stir-fries, pasta dishes, salad brighteners and more! High quality spiral vegetable slicer with special super sharp Japanese stainless steel blades & high grade food-safe plastic.

Cool, then top with cream cheese frosting.

I always add some zest to my frosting- like lemon or orange and a table spoon of the juice because it really makes a difference!
