Carrot Cake

Baked and arranged by my lovely daughter, Emily.


CARROT CAKE

   Preheat oven to 3
Mix these three ingredients together50*

    1 cup        brown sugar
    1 cup        oil
    4               eggs

.Add these ingredients (except the grated carrots) to the first three. Mix well, than add the grated carrots. 
    1/2 tsp      salt
    1 1/2 tsp   cinnamon
    1 1/2 tsp   baking soda
    1 1/2 tsp   baking powder
    1 tsp         xantham gum
    1 cup        rice flour
    1/2 cup     potato starch - tapioca starch
    2 cups      grated carrots
    
Bake for 40-50 min. Cool.
If you can have dairy, slather this moist cake with cream cheese frosting. If dairy is a problem, try the plain white frosting below. It really is quite nice - if you can keep yourself from thinking about cream cheese! 


                                                                 FROSTING

    3 cups       icing sugar
    2 tsp         margarine
    1 1/2 tsp   vanilla extract
    non-dairy substitute such as Rice Dream
Mix the icing sugar and margarine together, than add milk till the icing till the icing is shiny and has a creamy consistency.

I had good results using this recipe and not including any xanthan gum. I did add 1/2 cup of drained crushed pineapple.
