Carrot cake recipe request
« on: June 30, 2008, 10:28:46 am »
Does anyone have a good carrot cake recipe?  One that is light and non-greasy, please.
We tried to make carrot cake this weekend.  The stodgy, greasy, claggy cake that appeared from the oven was not worth Mrs Nerd grating half a kilo of carrots! :(

I've used this one and its always gone down well (has even won a competition  :)).  It came from another forum.


Ingredients :

9oz Grated Carrot (thats's about 3 carrots)
3 eggs
1tsp vanilla essence
6oz sugar
100ml (70g)  vegetable oil (a flavouress kind like sunflower)
1 rounded tsp cinnamon
1 level tsp nutmeg
3oz dessicated coconut
3oz sultanas
4oz self raising flour

Directions :

Peel & grate carrots. Weigh all ingredients into a large bowl, adding the flour last. Stir with a wooden spoon until uniform mixture. Put into 8" greased springform cake tin. Put in oven at ~180C for ~45mins or until springy to the touch/ kinfe comes out clean. Wait to cool. Eat.
