Carrot Plumcake


Carrot plumcake is a very simple dessert to make, it is very reminiscent of the famous Camille carrot snacks, perfect for snack and breakfast.


  • 300 grams of carrots (about 3 medium carrots)
  • 190 grams of granulated sugar
  • 190 grams of flour 00
  • 120 ml of sunflower oil
  • 50 gr of potato starch
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 orange (grated zest of 1 orange and juice of 1/2 orange)
  • 1 sachet of baking powder
  • a pinch of salt


  1. Turn on the oven (static at 175 °).
  2. Grease and flour the chosen mold.
  3. Wash and peel the carrots (removing the dirtiest external part with the knife). Cut the carrots into slices and put them in a mixer to finely chop them together with the grated rind of Orange and the juice of half an orange andseed oil. We whirl for a minute intermittently. I recommend the result must be very fine, there must be no pieces of carrots!
  4. Add the chopped carrots 3 eggs, and whisk for a few moments to mix the ingredients to get a smooth and foamy cream.
  5. In a large bowl combine the dry ingredients: sugar, a pinch of salt and then the flour with potato starch and baking powder all sifted in a colander; mix with a hand whisk and add the carrot cream, incorporate the ingredients well and pour into the mold (or cake pan) previously buttered and floured.
  6. Bake a 175 ° in a static oven preheated for about 30-35 minutes, the tecchino test is always valid if it should brown too much on the surface before cooking, put a sheet of aluminum foil on the top shelf.
  7. Let it cool on a wire rack and after half an hour remove from the mold and serve.
