  • I made this cake today, I

    Submitted by BallyT on 1. February 2014 - 16:51.

    I made this cake today, I didn't get a lot of rising and as such I have two very flat loaf cakes. I ended up with twice as much icing as I needed so have frozen some for my next cake.

  • This carrot cake is awesome.

    Submitted by Pontifek on 18. April 2013 - 19:15.

    This carrot cake is awesome. I halved the recipe and put it into a loaf tin, perfect for our family of three. I also use lime zest instead of lemon, still lovely flavour. I also halved the icing sugar quantity but kept the 250 gms of cream cheese which eliminated the graininess of the icing.

  • I made this cake yesterday

    Submitted by KristyM on 7. October 2012 - 21:25.

    I made this cake yesterday and iced it today.

    It was very nice. I forgot to take the carrots out of the bowl after chopping them so they kind of liquified. I didnt have the oil in the recipe so I used olive oil.

    I made it in one big cake. Friends were very impressed.

    I made the frosting and it was very grainy so I thought I did something wrong and rushed back down the shop for more creamed cheese and the second lot was also grainy and the more you mix creamed cheese the runnier it gets so I added butter like a comment above suggested. perhaps I will try less next time.

  • Fantastic tasting cake! My

    Submitted by RhondaH on 4. August 2012 - 07:28.

    Fantastic tasting cake! My husband said the icing I made tasted a little granulated but I couldn't stop licking it off the spatula when I made it! The cake tastes great too. The only differences from your recipe was I added 20g more nuts and cooked the cake for 30mins longer. I also added some butter to my icing because it was too thin to begin with and I didn't want to add more suger. I will most definitely be making this cake again and the great thing is, there was so much cake mix, I made two! Thanks for your recipe. Am still a beginner at TM but enjoyed the whole thing. I even had to make my own icing suger because I had none in the cupboard. No problem with this machine!

  • Hi Trichal, Sorry for late

    Submitted by CharlotteHamilton on 12. June 2012 - 09:30.

    Hi Trichal, Sorry for late reply but the carrots and nuts just should be just incorporated... perhaps use your spatula to assist

  • I have just made this recipe

    Submitted by trishcal on 25. April 2012 - 11:57.

    I have just made this recipe and some of the mix went into a muffin tin as well as a loaf tin. End result was great.

    I am curious though as to how it only took 5 - 10 seconds on the reverse function on speed 2 to mix the nuts and carrot into the mix. I found it was closer to 5 minutes and wondered if perhaps there is something wrong with my machine.....its only a new machine so hopefully there isnt anything wrong with it.
