At the request of some friends on Facebook, I have decided to post my famous Carrot Cake recipe for you to try yourself. I must admit, it’s just a mixture of two or three recipes I found online (don’t ask me where though, I have no idea) and I have refined it to suit myself, and added gluten-free flour so it doesn’t give me a bad tummy! You could of course use normal flour with it if you wanted to.
Carrot Cake Recipe
Mix the following together in a bowl:
275g Sugar (brown or white or a combination)
200ml Sunflower Oil
300g Grated Carrots
150g Dried Fruit/Nuts
225g (Gluten free) Self-Raising Flour
1tsp Mixed Spice
And add to the rest. Then add:
A few tbsp. of orange juice
Bake for 25-30 mins at 180C (depending on oven, depth of tin etc.)
You can put all the mixture in a deep, loose bottom tin, or in two shallow tins and then sandwich together with the frosting.
150g Cream Cheese
150g Icing Sugar
I must warn you though, this cake is so good, that less than 24 hours later, you will end up with this:
