Recipe's preparation

    To Make Carrot Cake
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees.  Line a 20cm square cake tin.

     

  2. Place the carrots and walnuts into the TM bowl then chop on Spd5 / 3 seconds.

     

  3. Scrap down sides of bowl.  Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, mixed spice, sugar and sultanas to the TM bowl.  Mix on Counter-clockwise operation, spd 3 / 10 seconds.

     

  4. Add the oil and eggs.  Mix on Counter-clockwise operation, spd 5 / 10 seconds.

     

  5. Pour your cake mixture into the lined cake tin and bake in the oven for 40 to 45 mins.  Once cooked allow to cool for 5 mins in the tin before removing onto a wire rack. 

     

     

  6. While your cake is cooling, make the cream cheese icing!

     

  7. Cream Cheese Icing
  8. Place the butterfly whisk in the TM bowl over the blades, then add the cream cheese and butter.  Beat on speed 4 for 10 seconds.  Scrape down side of bowl and repeat another two times.

     

  9. Add icing sugar and lemon rind to the bowl and beat on speed 4 for 30 seconds.

     

  10. Once your cake is completely cool, spead the cream cheese icing over the top of your cake and cut into 16 equal pieces.  I like to put a little grated lemon rind on the top of the icing to finish it off.

     

    Enjoy your cake

I always use raw sugar but you can easily use white sugar.

  • Have you tried to make it

    Submitted by garthandrea on 1. August 2016 - 15:16.

    Have you tried to make it again? If so, How much sugar did you use?

    I am thinking 100g would be enough considering there are also sultanas in the recipe.

    Submitted by penny_p76 on 15. July 2016 - 19:23.

    What can I use instead of the mixed spice? As I don't have any in the pantry at the moment.

    and only have peacan's too. it will change the taste completely? or perhaps don't add any nuts

    Made this today, it turned out perfectly.  I used pecans instead of walnuts as this is what I had in the pantry and it was beautiful.  Thank you for sharing.
