    For a non carrot cake liker this cake was beautiful. Made the night before and iced the next day - yum! Used vegetable oil and added half the sugar. Baked in a square tin and was definitely cooked at 35 mins. The sultanas added to the moistness. Didn't use this recipe for frosting. Found another one on rc. Not a very big cake. Will definitely be making again.

    Made this today and it is delicious! The cream
    Cheese topping is literally "the icing on the cake", so creamy and really compliments the cake. I used three large carrots and used olive oil as I didn't have rice bran. Realised I didn't have any brown sugar and was about to run to the shops until I realised that the wonderful Thermomix can make brown sugar too so quickly whipped up some of that. will definately use this recipe again. Thank you!

    Very tasty. I made them into muffins instead for my kids lunch boxes, so only cooked for 20 mins. I reduced the sugar to 100g and used grape seed oil instead and added pepitas instead of sultanas. Worked out great!  tmrc_emoticons.)

    Has anyone tried making this with half the sugar? Would any other quantities need changing if  I halved the sugar?

    Submitted by Kirstie27 on 25. October 2015 - 22:23.

    My husband has been asking me for months to make a carrot cake and he was not disappointed. And neither was i - delicious!!

    I used almond oil instead of rice bran, 3 smaller carrots for the cake and baked them in mini loaves. I also upped the sugar quantity (in the icing) after reading the comments to 100g and it turned out perfect!! Thank you!

    Lovely, moist and delicious.  I reduced sugar to 140g and added a handful of chopped walnuts for crunch. Cream cheese icing could have done with a little more sugar.

  • This was great - I only used

    Submitted by Chevalle21 on 27. July 2015 - 16:13.

    This was great - I only used 150g brown sugar (and would use less next time), used currants instead of sultanas (because I had no sultanas) and a handful of pepitas for the nutty flavour, and because we are a nut free household. I didn't have time to make the icing and it was delicious on its own! Thanks!

  • Made this cake yesterday for

    Submitted by Shell and Ernie on 22. July 2015 - 06:16.

    Made this cake yesterday for dessert last night. I added slivered almonds instead of sultanas and also had to mix it on speed 5-6 for 10 seconds for the cake mixture to mix in. Think I will use a bit more sugar in the cream cheese mix too as it wasn't sweet enough for me how I like it but I did use my own home made cream cheese which will make a difference. Made into muffin bases so I could keep the eating to a minimum tmrc_emoticons.) Cooked in 20 minutes that way too. Came out really nice though. Thanks for the recipe.
