I posted this recipe 2 years ago . I decided to modify it a bit because I have a version that I prefer. This kugel tastes delicious both hot and chilled. I borrowed this recipe online but I decided to use healthier ingredients as suppose to oil and sugar. The applesauce gives it a moist and velvety texture. You can add a little brown sugar if you feel its necessary.It can also be served as a cake as I included an optional frosting recipe below.
- 2 cups of flour (you can opt to whole wheat flour)
- 5 carrots – 2 peeled and grated, 3 cooked and pureed
- 1/2 cup of honey
- 1 Tbs of baking power
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1 cup of applesauce (preferably unsweetened)
- 4 eggs
- 1 Tbs of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of ginger
- 1 tsp of grounded cloves
Preheat oven to 350°F Combine flour, baking powder and soda in one bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs well. Add the honey, applesauce,carrots and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour bowl. Add the spices and mix well.You may include a little water if the banner is too floury. Pour banner in a greased loaf pan and bake for 35 minutes or until the top of the kugel is golden brown(if using a bunt pan, bake for 45 minutes). Do a toothpick test to ascertain that the kugel is ready. Once its baked, leave it on a rack to cool. Yields appropriately 8 servings.
If you prefer to take the cake route, refer to the frosting recipe below:
- 1/2 cup of margarine – one stick
- 1 Tsp of vanilla
- 1 packet of confectioners sugar (about a half a cup)
Cream 3 ingredients together and spread the frosting on top of the cooled carrot cake.
