Carrot Cake Bundt Recipe with Zesty Frosting | Healthy Desserts

Our healthy version of a sugar-laden Carrot Cake is deliciously spongy, light and full of flavour!

The zesty orange provides a tasty edge, really hitting the spot when needed, but contains low sugar and added protein!



  • 1 large carrot (grated)
  • 2 medium oranges
  • 3 scoops Milk Protein Smooth (vanilla flavour)
  • 90 g coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 125 g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 15 g granulated stevia
  • 200 g quark
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar


  1. Mix together all of the dry ingredients.

  2. Keep one orange to the side for the cake frosting, and grate the zest of the other,

  3. Add the grated carrot and the orange zest to the top of the dry ingredients.

  4. Melt the coconut oil and allow it to cool.

  5. Add the eggs to the dry mixture and beat together.

  6. Mix these ingredients together until smooth. If the mixture is thick, add water until it makes a paste-like consistency.

  7. Rub the coconut all over the inside of your tin then pour in the mixture.

  8. Bake on 180 degrees Celsius for 20 to 25 minutes.

  9. For the frosting: Mix together the remaining ingredients until a thick, spreadable paste has formed. Once your cake has cooled, spread the frosting and then serve.
