Easy Apple Carrot Cake with Walnuts

Easy Apple Carrot Cake with Walnuts

Of course, this autumn season could not have started without an apple cake! But this time, I mixed the apples with carrots and walnuts, a perfect combination of 3 textures, 3 tastes that certainly won't go wrong. The cake is fluffy, tender and soft from the carrots in the dough, then the apples bring extra flavor and moistiness, and, finally, the nuts give an absolutely fantastic crunchiness.

It's pretty quickly to prepare and the result will surely be highly appreciated by the whole family. It was a success for us, my husband said I must make it again as soon as possible.

I'm thinking carrots could be replaced with the same amount of raw pumpkin if you don't have carrots or you really like pumpkin.


150 g
the amount after peeling
200 g
about 3 apples
100 g
3 pieces
110 g
Vegetable oil
60 ml
All-Purpose Flour
130 g
Baking powder
1 tsp
Cinnamon powder
1 tsp
0.25 tsp

Step by step


First, take 50g of walnuts, about half of the total amount, and coarsely chop in the food processor or with a knife.

Then toast a little in a dry and well-heated pan, being careful not to burn them. Set aside to cool while we prepare the rest of the ingredients.


Peel the carrots, wash and blend in a food processor or grate on the small holes side.


Wash, core and slice the apples.


In a large bowl, combine 3 eggs and 110g of sugar, beat well with the mixer until it turns into a white foam.


Pour in 60ml of oil, little by little, mixing until incorporated completely.


Add in the chopped carrots and toasted walnuts, stir.


Finally, mix in 130g of flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Beat well with a whisk or mixer until the mixture is not lumpy.


Line an oven pan with baking paper, mine was a round springform with a 28cm diameter.


Pour the batter into the pan and even out with a spoon.


Arrange the apple slices on top, sprinkle with the remaining walnuts - the ones you didn't chop and toast at step 1.


Bake the apple carrot cake with walnuts in the preheated oven at 180 C for 30-35 minutes, or until evenly browned.


After baking, leave to cool for about 1 hour in the pan. Then, you can slice it and serve it with great eagerness and pleasure. It really is delicious  and "Wow"!
