    This really is the best ever carrot and walnut cake. I have made this a few times and always comes out great. I even made one for my doctor and she loved it as well. I don't worry about doing icing because i like to freeze some which lasts over three months.

    Submitted by mishymorgs on 7. February 2021 - 18:06.

    A great recipe! I reduced both the sugar and golden syrup by half and replaced the walnuts with sultanas so it was nut-free for school lunches, and it turned out perfectly (although it is not very sweet as I'd intended). The whole family enjoyed 👍

    This carrot cake is absolutely beautiful. I made one 8 inch cake and 12 cupcakes. The recipe needs to be adjusted though as the golden syrup and brown sugar quantities are far too much, I only put 80g of golden syrup and 150g of brown sugar and found that it was plenty sweet enough.

    Made this yesterday to have today, and used Sugar Spun Run cream cheese frosting recipe. Amazinnggggg!!! Didn't change a thing, and I baked it in two 6-inch pans to make a 4 layer cake. It needed 1hr 10mins cook time. It is very sweet to my taste though, but I would be nervous to alter quantities incase it changes the texture! Maybe best to just cut smaller slices 😂

    Best carrot cake ever.
    First time I made this carrot cake. Made it exactly as per instructions and it was glorious. The lemon I used for the icing was huge so the icing was a bit thin and very lemony but as I love lemon, I didnt mind. 2 days ago I made the steamed carrot cake as in Cookidoo. That was also very moist and delicious but as I am not a huge fan of raisins, I liked this recipe better but if you didnt have an oven, the other is very handy. The steamed one also has a consistency which was almost more like a steamed pudding (like sticky date) rather than a cake like this one. BTW, I made it with gluten free flour, lactose free cream cheese and grape seed oil. (and cooked it in the oven at the same time as a roast dinner! )

    My kids hate walnuts so I left them out, and to cut down on their sugar intake I didn't put any icing on.. but they still got the tick of approval!

    I love that this cake has 500g of carrot!
    Not too sweet with the full amount of sugar, (but I am in the desert at the moment, so no access to buy icing ingredients). I think a cream cheese topping would be divine.
    I’m also wondering how it might go next time, substituting some of the oil for pineapple juice, or even crushed pineapple 🤔.
    Drooling....
    ‘super soft and plenty of moisture in this cake’
    Thanks for sharing your recipe 😋

    (I had to substitute almonds for walnuts and crushed them first. Worked out fine)

    Delicious my go to recipe for carrot cake.

    Made this for morning tea at school today and this cake was devoured by all in seconds.
    The cake came out really high in my 23cm tin and looked like something you'd buy in a bakery or that's served in a cafe. It was delicious and I was lucky to have got myself a slice. A definite winner and will be making again and again. It was nice and moist and the sweetness was perfect even with the icing. I added about 60g of butter spread to the icing as well. Just perfect thank you.

    Haven't made the icing yet.

    Hope you don't mind but I shared your link on my FB page. I love the zing from the lemon juice, and admittedly added a bit of butter and less icing sugar. Winner recipe. Thank you so much
