Nutritional values

The grated carrots not only make the cake super-juicy, they also provide an extra portion of beta-carotene. This natural plant pigment is a precursor of vitamin A, which the body needs for the visual process, among other things, and the hazelnuts provide valuable fatty acids and vitamin E. The two bioactive micronutrients protect the heart and blood vessels.

If you like, you can add chopped walnut kernels to the dough. This not only gives the carrot cake a great bite: walnuts are particularly rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which inhibit inflammation, prevent arterial congestion and strengthen our memory and concentration.
