Classic Carrot Cake


Ingredients:
For the cake :
1 ½ c whole wheat flour (measured correctly)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
1 large egg, room temperature
etc


Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and coat a 9”-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To prepare the cake, whisk together the flour and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the maple syrup and Greek yogurt, thoroughly mixing until no large clumps remain. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk, stirring just until incorporated, beginning and ending with the flour. (For best results, add the flour mixture in 3 equal parts and the milk in 2 equal parts.) Fold in the carrots.
  3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 350°F for 28-31 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Cool completely to room temperature before frosting.
