Carrot Cake


As promised here is the carrot cake I was talking about! I love this recipe because it is simple but still very delicious! I remember saying that I would start a healthy lifestyle...oh well, once in a while it is good to enjoy and eat good food :)

So here is what you are going to need for this cake:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2½ dl sugar
  • 4 dl flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 spoon of cinnamon
  • 200gr butter
  • 5 dl grated carrot
  • 1 grated apple

For the frosting:

  • 200gr orange cream cheese
  • 1 dl sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
  • 2 dl whipping cream

Start by whisking the eggs and the sugar. Combine the dry ingredients ( cinnamon, flour and baking powder ). Melt the butter and grate the carrots and the apple. Add in the egg-sugar foam the melted butter, the dry ingredients and the grated carrots and apple in small batches. Add the mixture in a greased baking casserole (no idea if that is it's realy name ) and leave it in the oven for 20-25 min on 200 degrees.

For the frosting:

Remember to apply the frosting when the cake has cooled down. If you can't find orange cream cheese you can use normal cream cheese, but you might want to add more sugar to it.
