There’s just something about carrot cakes that I love. I think it’s the sweetness of the carrots, which, as you know, are a vegetable, and vegetables are good for you, right? But here, they’re the dominant ingredient in a cake, which is spiced up and usually decked out in glorious cream cheese frosting, all resting on a beautiful cake stand, so…what’s not to love? And the nuts: either walnuts or pecans grace a carrot cake and are often used as creative decoration. The visual appeal of a stunningly-crafted carrot cake makes me drool and want to attempt to make one of these creations in my own kitchen!

Guess what? Here are 7 stunning carrot cakes that you can totally make right now! They look impressive and gorgeous, but they are within your power to re-create them for yourself.

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Spoon Fork Bacon
I love the elegant simplicity of the frosting on the 4-layer cake. Currants replace raisins and the nuts are on the outside of the cake for a smoother cake texture. Glorious, rich cream cheese frosting is not overly sweet and is the perfect compliment to this stunning carrot cake.

Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Blender Muffins

Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Blender Muffins are an easy and healthy breakfast option or a delicious afternoon snack.

I love this recipe, not only because the muffins are delicious and healthy, but because it is so easy to put together. It’s like a one-bowl recipe except you’re using your high-speed blender as the bowl! Plus, super easy cleanup. Who doesn’t love an easy blender recipe?

Gluten-Free Cranberry Blender Muffins are an easy and healthy breakfast option or a delicious afternoon snack.

This recipe calls for sour cream OR plain Greek yogurt. Use which ever you have on hand. Make sure you use the full fat version for both options. The fat-free just doesn’t cut it in this recipe;  you need the extra fat and richness. I use Swerve granulated sweetener as a substitute for refined sugar. Have you tried it yet? I love it. Make sure you’re using a high-powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendec (I use this one) for the easiest and smoothest blending.

Gluten-Free Cranberry Blender Muffins are an easy and healthy breakfast option or a delicious afternoon snack.

I like to add a drizzle of Swerve confectioners sweetener mixed with a little orange juice to the top of the muffins once they’ve cooled. This is totally optional, but I love that little bit of orange flavor mingled with the tartness of the cranberries. So good!

Here’s a simple video of the process:

Gluten-Free Cranberry Orange Blender Muffins
Author:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • Muffin Batter:
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup full-fat sour cream OR full-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • ½ cup Swerve Granulated Sweetener
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • Orange Glaze Drizzle:
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • ½ cup Swerve Confectioners Sweetener
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.

  2. Line a muffin pan with parchment liners.

  3. In the container of a high-powered blender, combine sour cream (or yogurt), eggs, and vanilla extract. Cap it and blend for 30 seconds.

  4. Add the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Blend again until smooth; about 45 second or so. If the batter is too thick, add a splash of water to thin it out.

  5. I like add my cranberries at the end, by hand, to each muffin cup, so go ahead and fill each muffin cup with batter, divided equally among each cup.

  6. Now add cranberries to each cup, poking some down into the batter and leaving a few exposed on the top.

  7. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until just golden brown.

  8. Remove and let cool completely.

  9. Orange Glaze Drizzle:
  10. Mix the orange juice and Swerve confectioners sweetener. Add more sweetener to taste or for thickness. Drizzle the glaze over the top of each completely cooled muffin.
