Asalam Alaykum Muslimat and Hello to all readers :)
I love baking, but only when I know someone would eat what I am baking. My hubby and kids are not big fan of cakes,unless it is the simple plain one.
So as my parents were visiting me. I thought I would attempt baking a carrot cake, which I got the recipe from my cousin, who got it from her friend LOL..I did some modifications to it but it came out really delicious.
2 cups self raising flour
1 1/4 cups oil
1 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
3 carrots grated
Juice of one orange
1 cup of chopped walnuts
200 gram cream cheese (e.g. Philadelphia)
1/2 cup icing sugar
70 gram butter
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees
whisk the self raising flour, salt and cinnamon powder together
Now beat oil and sugar together till combined well,add eggs one at a time, add vanilla
Add the orange juice, than the carrot while still beating the mixture, then add the walnuts
Add the flour and mix slowly for a short time.
Add your mixture in the baking pan, into the oven
bake for around 40-45 minutes.
make your icing by mixing the ingredients with the mixer.
when your cake is ready let it cool for a while then pour the icing over it.
Preferably eaten when chilled.
