Carrot cake with ricotta icing {sans gluten}

Carrot cake recette

Je ne sais pas si vous avez déjà eu la chance de partir en voyage à New York, ahhhh New Yorkses grattes-ciel, sa Statut de la Liberté, ses magasins mais aussi son carrot cake (celui de la Magnolia Bakery étant le plus célèbre, oui vous savez la pâtisserie de Sex and the City). Pour en avoir manger lors de notre voyage, il me reste un certain souvenir gustatif de ce gâteau et c’est ce que j’ai voulu reproduire avec cette recette à la centaine d’ingrédients (ou presque !). Oui, car c’est un peu ça le carrot cake, lots of ingredients that at first glance you would never have put together and a taste result close to orgasm… culinary of course ! For a change from traditional cream cheese frosting, that for my part I do not carry in my heart, not to say hate, I replaced it with a lighter ricotta-based frosting, what, to stay in New York we take a little detour to Little Italy and it’s quite nice !

Anyway if you still follow me, little bonus, Here I give you a gluten-free carrot cake recipe., because I think of the intolerant among you who sometimes have to drool over cakes without being able to touch them. And for those who are not celiac, you can either replace the rice flour with wheat flour or try the recipe as is, so much we can change a little it doesn't hurt to a fly to our stomach.
