Carrot Cake, the gluten free version (TMX)

I've just slightly updated this from the original thermomix recipe with a few changes including weights for everything i could!!! nothing drives me crazier than thermomix recipes i have to use cups to measure for lol (and yes, i have been a culprit too ;))


170-190g carrot, chopped into 1" chunks
60g walnuts

130g sugar
130g oil (I use grapeseed)

3 eggs
1/2 tspn salt
1 heaped tspn baking soda (bicarb)
1 heaped tspn gluten free baking powder
1 heaped cinnamon or mixed spice
240g gluten free plain flour

place carrot in thermomix, chop on speed 5 for approx 10-15 seconds. remove.
place wanlnuts in bowl, chop on speed 4 for approx 10-15 seconds, place in bowl with carrot.

place butterfly in thermo.
combine sugar and oil on speed 4 for approx 10-15 seconds. scrape sides down, add applesauce and mix on speed 4 for another 10-15 seconds.
reduce speed to 2 and add eggs one at a time through top and beat till smooth.
