Carrot Cake

  • 250 g peeled and coarsely grated carrots
  • 200 g flour
  • 200 g sugar
  • 200 ml sunflower or vegetable oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 100 g walnut pieces
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  1. Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, sugar, eggs, oil, and cinnamon powder together in a large bowl.
  2. Mix in the walnut pieces and grated carrot.
  3. Put in a lined cake tin in the oven at 170°c for about an hour, checking if the inside is fully cooked by piercing with a knife. If the knife comes out clean, it’s done!
  • 1 part cream cheese
  • 1 part butter at room temperature
  • 2 parts icing sugar
  1. Blend together the three ingredients with a fork, ensuring that there’s no lumps. Keep adding more icing sugar until the mixture is solid enough to hold its own and be applied to the cake without slipping.
  2. Do not apply to the cake until the cake is completely cool.
  3. Once applied to the cake, place the cake in the fridge for a while to ensure the icing sets a little more. Then take the cake out and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
