This is a cake which I made from the book The Best of Gretta Anna – it has fast become a favourite. Divine and so easy to make – grated carrots, crushed pineapple, walnuts…and it keeps well, will last a few days if you don’t eat it all the day you bake it. I especially love the cream cheese icing – that say’s carrot cake to me every time.
Hint – If you make this at home – do not use vanilla bean paste – the little tiny black seeds are obvious in the icing 🙂 use vanilla in liquid form.
My husband is a real fan of carrot cake, Carol. I’ll bet he’d love this recipe, and it dies look delicious!
Margot I bet he would love this, doe she cook too? I have made this a few times – then when out and had some commercially made at a café – my cake was far superior 🙂 As I was making this I thought of making little marzipan carrots to decorate…one day 🙂
