So I love cake.. Like SERIOUSLY love cake..
I bake a looot now that I have the time, and I must tell you, it’s not easy!
My favorite cake has always been the carrot cake, because I like the spiciness it has.
I’ve also figured out a hack to make it suppper moist and it last for days in the fridge! BEST.
You’ll need :
3 cups grated carrots
1 can pineapple finely chopped (save syrup) -used pears once cause that’s all I had! Works!
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups of canola oil
1/4 teaspoon of salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups cake flour
1 cup sugar ( recipe uses two but this is too sweet)
2 teaspoon mixed spice or cinnamon if you don’t have
How To :
Mix all the dry ingredients together and mix all the wet ingredients together separately.
Make a well in the dry ingredients and add liquids – mix well.
Pour batter into two buttered tins
Bake 40 -45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
Remove from oven and poke holes into cakes, and drizzle with pineapple/pear syrup.
Once cooked through, cool completely and prepare to ice.
For Icing :
2 tubs cream cheese
Mix all the ingredients together until well incorporated with no lumps, and ice cake.
I used melted chocolate as topping on my cream cheese once, and grated lemon rind on another.
If you don’t get a standing ovation after serving this – I’ll make you one myself..
