Print this recipe
Carrot cake is one of the world's favorite desserts. Moist, creamy, rich (but not too rich) and very delicious, there's nothing not to like about this beloved treat. But, what about those who fear baking desserts or don't even have an oven in their homes?
Fear no more, friends, and watch We Grubbin' video recipe below for a super easy to follow carrot cake recipe that doesn't require an oven at all and still has all the flavor and richness that makes us love its traditional baked sister.
No-bake carrot cake
Preparation time: 10 min
Total time: 50 min
Serves: 6-8
For the cake
2 cups (198 g) pancake flour
3 large eggs
1 cup (191 g) granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
1 cup (120 g) walnuts, crushed
2 cups (230 g) carrot, grated
For the frosting
1/2 cup (115 gr) unsalted butter
8 ounces (226 gr) cream cheese
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups (390 gr) powdered sugar
1. In a large bowl, mix sugar, eggs, salt, cinnamon and vegetable oil until well combined. Add the crushed walnuts and sift the pancake flour on top of the mix. Combine with the help of a spatula and add the carrots. Mix everything together.
2. Grease a 10-inch pan (with lid) and add one cup of your carrot mix. Cover with the lid and let it cook over low heat for about 3-4 minutes. Flip the pancake and cook the other side. You'll need to repeat this process for 4-5 pancakes.
3. To make the frosting, mix the butter and cream cheese (both at room temperature). Add the vanilla and powdered sugar and combine well.
4. Now, to assemble your cake, begin with one carrot pancake and spread 2-3 tablespoons of your frosting on it. Top with another carrot pancake and repeat the process with all the leftover pancakes. Finish with a layer of frosting and top with crushed walnuts.
Pro tip: To get the look of a traditional carrot cake, cut the edges of the pancakes with a knife and add some frosting as needed (watch the video to see how to nail this part).
Pro tip 2: You may need less batter per pancake if your pan is smaller than 10 inches!
