Einkorn Carrot Cake, Healthy AND Delicious

by Julie Koyle

My first attempt at making einkorn carrot cake did not go well at all. To add to the blunder, it was supposed to be for a birthday so I was quite disappointed because it turned out to be more like einkorn pudding in a cake pan :/

As you can imagine, the “pudding birthday cake” only made me more determined to get this right. And that’s just what I did!

My second try turned out so well! :)  You can get my recipe here

The cake was spongy, moist, and had a delicious flavor. My family loved it so much that they nearly finished off the entire pan. It’s very healthy (as cakes go) so it was a score in every way.

…I needed one of those after my first try!

Baking with einkorn takes some practice because it absorbs less water, and it looks like it is baked long before it’s ready to take out of the oven. I’ve been told that I should use 25% less water when baking with einkorn. That seems to be true.
