Spiced Nutty Carrot Cake

Spiced Nutty Carrot Cake

with Lemon Cream Cheese Icing | Serves 6+

Get ready to impress with this moist and delicious, lightly spiced carrot and nut cake. We've added a hint of lemon for added flavour and nuts for extra crunch. We know it will be hard, but be sure to wait for the cake to cool completely before covering with the decadent icing.

Unfortunately, this week’s pistachio was in short supply, so some customers will receive almonds instead. Don’t worry, the recipe will be just as delicious, just be sure to follow your recipe card!

Instructions

1
1

• Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease and line the cake tin with baking paper. • Measure 200ml of vegetable oil. In a medium bowl, place 100g of the butter and cream cheese. Set aside at room temperature to soften. • Grate carrot. Roughly chop pecans and almonds. Zest lemon, then cut in half.

TIP: Weigh out your ingredients before you start to speed up your prepping time!

• In a large bowl, place vegetable oil, the eggs, brown sugar, vanilla-flavoured syrup and half the lemon zest. Beat with electric beaters until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. • Using a spoon, fold in sweet golden spice blend and basic sponge mix until just combined. Add carrot and half the pecans and almonds and gently fold until just combined.

• Pour cake batter into the lined cake tin. • Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until firm to touch and skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside to cool completely in tin.

• While the cake is cooling, to the bowl with softened butter and cream cheese, add icing sugar and remaining lemon zest.

TIP: Having your butter and cream cheese at room temperature helps it whip easier into a light and fluffy icing.
