What’s Orange And Sounds Like A Parrot?
That’s right, Carrot!
Now who doesn’t like Carrot Cake? Raise your hands! That’s what I thought, no hands 😀
In my opinion, ain’t no Fall without a Carrot Cake! I open season every year with cake and Chili,sort of tradition in my house 🙂
I love all the aromas coming out of the oven; cinnamon, orange, batter etc. Only thing that lacks is Apple Cider, about that in some later posts.
Shall we begin making a Cake?
Oh, one more thing, I don’t like any frosting on my cake so if you prefer some it is up to you.
2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of all spice
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
100gr of melted butter
juice of one orange ( I had no oranges so I used juice of mandarin)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 carrots shredded
1/2 cup of raisins
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts
In a bowl mix dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg. Set it aside.
In a second bowl mix wet ingredients: pour melted butter and add sugar, eggs, juice of orange and vanilla, whisk it well till you get smooth consistency.
Now it is time to mix Dry and Wet together!
Finally, add shredded carrots, raisins and walnuts.
You can bake it in a Bundt Pan or any other pan of your choice.
Now pour the batter in a pan and bake it for 45-50 minutes at 180C (350F)
Don’t forget to accompany nice slice of cake with coffee or tea!
