Semolina

Semolina is often used in pasta dishes, because it helps to hold its shape in water. It is made from durum and has a high protein content. Semolina also makes a wonderful bread, it absorbs all the juices from carrots and maintains its shape. Moreover, semolina doesn’t add special taste to the cake. So definitely try this carrot semolina bread.

Carrot cake with real carrots!

But the main ingredient is Carrot! It is a big trend to add some vegetables, for example, carrots (dried carrot powder, I believe) in bread, so it looks more healthy and appealing to the customer.

However, the bread can consist of a lot more carrots, so it will be proud to be carrot bread! Carrots are sweet, the white chocolate ganache is sweet too, so it is more carrot loaf cake than a bread. A sweet carrot bread or carrot cake, call it as you wish.

Don’t be afraid to use so many carrots in this Easter bread. Carrots are great for Easter desserts, they are naturally sweet and make this cake super moist and beautiful in color.

So as it is made from carrots, it tastes as a pleasantly sweet carrot bread, more like carrots. Carrots, beetroot, sweet potatoes, pumpkin – these vegetables to are good not only in savory dishes, but also in desserts! No need to leave carrots aside – let’s make a healthy and tasty desserts.
