  • Sift all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Mix honey, oil, and yogurt together in a bowl, stirring gently.

  • Combine carrots with the honey mixture; add orange zest and vanilla extract. Add flour mixture by the spoonful, folding gently until no dry spots remain. Add a couple teaspoons orange juice if batter is too thick. Pour into the prepared cake pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top springs back when touched, 25 to 30 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tried it today as we wanted something healthy and with no eggs (intolerant to eggs). Wow so good! We really love it and taste is really nice. I just modified the recipe by doubling the cinnamon as I love cinnamon! I don’t regret it, also I think next time I will leave it a bit longer in the oven. I have an old oven and I left it for 33min but I think 40min would have been perfect. I highly recommend this recipe. Thank you for it! Read More

I was hoping I'd taste honey in Carrot-Honey Cake, but I didn't. The little zip of orange is a nice surprise though. Read More
