Ingredients

Carrot Pecan Bundt Cake

Orange Cream Cheese Glaze

Instructions

Carrot Pecan Bundt Cake

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees with the rack in the middle.
  • Stir all dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the coconut oil, then eggs (one at a time), stirring to combine after each egg. Fold in carrots and pecans with a rubber spatula
  • Pour the batter into a non-stick Bundt cake pan greased with a thin coat of coconut oil spray. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Place a baking sheet underneath a wire cooling rack. Carefully remove the cake from the pan by inverting onto the wire cooling rack. Using a spoon, immediately drizzle the glaze on top of the cake. 
  • Cool cake for at least 15-20 minutes in order for glaze to set. Slice and enjoy!

Orange Cream Cheese Glaze

  • Add powdered sugar and Neufchatel cheese to mixing bowl. Using a hand mixer or your stand mixer, mix together until creamy. Slowly add one tablespoon of orange juice at a time to mixture. Add vanilla extract until smooth. Set aside until ready to glaze cake. 

Notes

I grate my carrots using a food processor with grater attachment. 
I recommend preparing the glaze during the last five to ten minutes of baking time.
