If you're looking for a classic carrot cake, then look no further. This carrot cake recipe is so versatile, you can even turn it into a tray bake. Just swap your round tin out for a lined 18 x 28cm (7x11”) tray. You just spread the icing over the top rather than sandwiched in the middle too. 

 

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Grease and line a 20cm (8inch) cake tin with baking parchment.

  2. Whisk the oil and sugar together, then whisk in the eggs one a time.

  3. Gently fold in the flour, followed by the carrots. Mix gently until combined, then turn into the prepared tin.

  4. Bake for 40 mins until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.

  5. For the topping, mix together the mascarpone cheese and golden icing sugar. Split your cake in half, sandwich together with half of the mascarpone mixture and spread the remainder on top. Finish with pieces of walnuts.

    This recipe is quite easy to follow although if you have a sweet tooth then this recipe isnt for you as it is definately lacking in sweetness.
