An amazing carrot cake which can also be baked as a tray bake.  Simply bake in a lined 18 x 28cm (7x11”) tray, spread icing over the top and cut into squares to serve. Why not try adding the zest of an orange in the mix for extra zing!

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.
