  • Finally got my act together

    Finally got my act together and made the carotte cake. I wish I had tasted the real thing as you did Tenina. It was not like Ozzi carrot cake. Very nice but a bit too sweet for my liking. I was confident that 1 packet is equal to 1 teaspoon but the cake was a bit more dence than I thought it should be so went looking and found two webs. One advised the packet is .5 oz or 14 g The second "Gourmetsleuth tells me that 14 g or .5 oz of baking powder is 2.8 teaspoons so I am pretty sure the recipe should use 2.5 or 3 teaspoons. I will try this again after this one is eaten. Might cut the sugar a bit too but some like it sweet.

    Ate the authentic Swiss Carrot Cake whilst in Zurich guys…delish…not at all like our carrot cake. I have edited recipe to read 1 tsp baking powder…this recipe is from one of our managers in Zurich. Please let me know if you make it and it needs more/less baking powder.  :bigsmile:

  • I should have thought of this

    I should have thought of this in the first place. I did a google on "packet of baking powder" and it turns out Germany and I guess Swiss use that. It is equal to 1 teaspoon according to the site I found. So my hunch was OK. Might do this tomorrow if I have all the rest of the ingredients.

  • cookie1, I think this is just

    Submitted by moreta on 3. January 2011 - 19:20.

    cookie1, I think this is just a typing error but not sure if it should be a teaspoon of baking powder or a packet of yeast. I think it will be baking powder based on the similarity to the torta but hope to get an answer before I try to make it on my own interpretation. I am going to try it with a gluten free flour because good cakes are something in short supply for those who are gluten intolerant. If this proves to be another I will be happy to pass on to those who need it.

    This certainly looks interesting, but I was wondering too. How much is a packet of baking powder?

  • An interesting combination.

    An interesting combination. Seems sort of like a Torta Caprese with carrots. I wonder if you could use sorghum flour or besan for the flour and make this gluten free.

    Question; How much is a packet of baking powder?
