Honey sweetened carrot cake recipe with whole wheat flour and mandarin orange juice. You can swap the mandarin orange juice for any fresh orange or freshly squeezed lemon juice. Use the best honey you can source to add goodness to your carrot cake.
This deliciously moist cake is gently flavoured with cinnamon. I make this carrot cake recipe with goat’s butter, though creamy butter made with cow’s milk works just as well.
The cake is made in a round angel cake tin which helps the cake bake out nicely. It would be difficult to make this successfully without an angel cake tin, with the risk of raw mix remaining in the centre after the outer edges of the cake are cooked.
