Oat Flour and Almond Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Topping  

Sponsored by the Doves Farm

I’m super excited to be joining one of my all-time favourite brands ‘Doves Farm’ to celebrate the launch of their new organic speciality flour range.  I’ve been using Doves Farm organic flours for many years and I’m the biggest fan of their organic buckwheat and self-raising flour – all brilliant quality and I love their range and ethos.  

So, I was super excited to discover their new  Speciality Flour range these include; coconut flour, teff flour, chickpea, quinoa and brown rice – wow! 

 Today I’ve created a recipe using their wonderful oat flour which is high in fibre, wholegrain  and milled from 100% British oats.  It was perfect for making this oat flour and almond carrot cake with cinnamon cream cheese topping.  The result and moist and dense carrot & almond cake topped with a gorgeous cream cheese topping.  

I really hope you love this delicious and cake and try some of Doves Farm new range – I can’t recommend enough.  

There are so many ways to use oat flour but here’s a little more inspiration; 

  • Banana & date flapjacks
  • Perfect for most biscuits 
  • Banana bread
  • Savoury oat flour tart crusts
