… in the entire world
Hey guys. Since it’s almost christmas, I though I would share the recipe for my favorite carrot cake ever! It’s soooo good, I can’t even explain my love for this cake. And a funny part about this cake is last time I made this cake, I walked down to my neighbour with some of it for them to taste it as well, so now, every time I’m seeing him outside, he is like “Therese, please make me some cake”, so that would probably tell you guys how good this is! Haha
It’s actually from the Norwegian site called Det søte liv (the sweet life, if you translate it into english) that has many good recipes for both cakes and food.
For the cake you’ll need:
6 dl regular sugar
4,5 dl oliveoil
7,5 dl flour
3 teaspoons baking soda
3 teaspoon cinnamon
750 g rasped carrots
Whisk together sugar and olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Beat in the eggs (by hand or use electric Mixer) until the mixture becomes thick and light. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix into a smooth dough. Rasp the carrots fine and stir into the dough to finish.
Put the dough in a large baking sheet covered roasting pan (about 30×40 cm). Bake in the center of the oven at 175 ° C for about 40 min. Cool cake in shape. Turn the cake out of the mold and remove the baking paper.
For the icing you’ll need:
250 g butter
400 g cream cheese (f.eks. 2 packs of Philadelfia)
500 g powdered sugar
3 teaspoons of vanilla-flavoured suga
Stir together butter and a little powdered sugar to butter cream. Add the cream cheese, vanilla sugar and the rest of the icing sugar and whip cream cheese smooth. Bre cheese cream in a thick layer over the cake. If you want, you can even put some sprinkles on.
