Brazilian Carrot Cake

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 50 mins

Ingredients

To Blend

  • 300 gm Carrot chopped (approx. 2 cups)
  • 3 nos Eggs large
  • 1 cup Flavourless oil
  • cup Granulated sugar
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Vanilla essence can use 1/2 – 1 tsp

Frosting

  • 86 gm Semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate approx. 1/2 cup
  • 397 gm Sweetened condensed milk 1 can
  • 2 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • ½ cup Heavy cream
  • Chocolate sprinkles optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour the baking dish thoroughly. I have used a bundt pan. You can also use a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Tap out the excess flour.
  • Into a blender jar add chopped carrots, eggs, oil, sugar and blend. Make sure that the mixture is smooth.
  • Pour the carrot mix into a mixing bowl and sieve in flour, baking powder, salt and mix until just combined. Then mix in the vanilla essence.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and bake in a 350°F preheated oven for 45 – 50 mins.
  • Check with a skewer at 45 mins, it should come out clean when done. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for 15-20 minutes.
  • Then, run a butter knife along the edges, tap the pan firmly a few times and shake it gently to help loosen the cake. Invert the pan onto a cooling rack and let the cake continue to cool while you prepare the frosting. (if using a bundt pan, don't let the cake cool for too long as it can get damp and stick to the pan)
  • Combine the ingredients for brigadeiro frosting in a saucepan on low heat, stirring continuously until it releases from the pan. Switch off heat and keep stirring for 2-3 mins so it can cool down a bit.
  • Pour the frosting onto the cake and decorate with chocolate sprinkles (optional). Note : My frosting had cooled down a bit more than needed so I used a spatula to spread the delicious frosting instead of pouring it.
  • Super yummy and easy Brazilian carrot cake is ready to to enjoy :))…How easy was that!!

Food for Soul

Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
– Psalms 115 :1 NIV

The more we do in the work of the Lord and the more public that work, the greater the temptation for us to think what we are doing is about us instead of being about God. We all like a compliment and it is encouraging to be told a lesson was good or a class was helpful but we have to remember that all we do is for the glory of God and not our own. Jesus said for us to let our lights shine but he also said it is to be to the praise of our Father in heaven.

More than one of the kings of Israel fought against or were overtaken by pride because of the position God had given them. Even the king of Babylon, who had been used by God to carry out his will, became proud and was made to eat grass and live in the fields as an animal. He learned his lesson and was restored.

O Lord, use me to your glory. Help me always remember that all I have and all I am is from you and because of your grace. I am thankful to you for giving me the opportunities you have given to me. Forgive me for failing to use them to the best of my ability and help me do better today and every day from now on. I humbly pray in the name of Jesus my Lord.

God Bless You!!
