Matcha Carrot Cake

Jump to recipe

In need of a dessert to take to your summer barbecues and dinner parties? This matcha carrot cake recipe is one that will be on repeat in my house all summer long. I learned the original carrot cake recipe from a chef at the villa where we hosted the retreats and this recipe is a crowd pleaser! As a chef, one of my favorite ways to get creative is finding new ways to combine ingredients. This matcha hazelnut carrot cake is one of my latest creations; mixing olive oil and matcha with crunchy hazelnuts for an exciting twist to elevate your classic carrot cake.

1 1/2 cup roasted unsalted hazelnuts, chopped
1 cup carrots, shredded
1 cup whole-wheat spelt flour
1 cup coconut sugar
1 cup water
2 tbsp Morning Ritual Matcha, sifted
1/3 cup olive oil
3 tsp of baking yeast
Pinch salt

1. Preheat the oven to 350!
2. Place the nuts in the blender and chop them very thinly. Add 1/2 of the washed and peeled carrots and continue chopping.
3. Add oil, water, salt, matcha and coconut sugar, still in the blender: continuing to blend patiently, perhaps opening occasionally to clean the edges and send everything back to the blender blades. You should get a fairly smooth mixture.
4. In a large bowl, sift flour and baking yeast. Add the contents of the mixer to the bowl, mixing well with a whisk. Once solids and “liquids” are combined, line a cake pan with baking paper.
5. Pour the mixture into the mold and bake your carrot cake for 40 minutes or until the surface is golden brown and slightly cracked.
