Gluten-Free Carrot Ring

November 15, 2017

This carrot ring makes a festive addition to your holiday meals. It's slightly sweet, slightly savory. The cake is dense and filling. Make one ring and easily serve your entire dinner party. I used Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 gluten-free flour blend, which measures cup for cup with wheat flour. This recipe is courtesy of my mother-in-law, who made this one night and I loved it so much so I made it too!

    1 hr

  • Yields: 12-16 servings


1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Flour Blend

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. Kosher salt

1 cup butter (2 sticks)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

2 cups grated carrots (about 4 medium/large carrots)

1 Tbsp. water

1 Tbsp. avocado oil

12 oz. portobello mushrooms, sliced

8 oz. frozen peas, cooked as instructed on bag

Kosher salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a round mold pan well with cooking spray or oil. Set aside.

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.

Cream together butter and brown sugar in your standing mixer - about 1 minute or until well combined.

Add to butter-sugar mixture the egg, carrots and water and mix on low until well combined.

Add batter to greased mold pan and bake in oven for about 45-55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow carrot ring to fully cool, then flip it onto a round serving dish. If the carrot ring is stuck, you can use your knife to gently loosen the cake from the side of the mold. Be gentle!

Heat oil over medium-high heat in large skillet pan, then add mushrooms. Cook mushrooms for 6-8 minutes until cooked through, stirring often.

Turn off burner, add cooked peas and salt and pepper to taste, and then add vegetable mixture to the center of the carrot ring. Serve immediately.

Enjoy this at your next holiday or dinner party. Your guests will love how it looks... and tastes!
