Carrot cake is a rich and decadent cake with plenty of flavour! The combination of the soft nutty base and the beautifully thick cream cheese icing makes it almost impossible to only have one slice!

A really good carrot cake is not easily forgotten, it should be perfectly moist, and topped with a thick coating of sweet icing and crunchy walnuts.
Carrot cake is usually associated with Easter and springtime but that shouldn’t stop you from making it any time you want.
A carrot cake isn’t complete without its thick and dense icing. We have added some orange zest for flavour. As the icing is heavy the cake base should be as light as possible to balance the texture. It needs to be packed full of carrots, walnuts and seasoned with a good dash of cinnamon!
When it comes to decorations its really up to you! In our recipe, we have chosen to thickly ice the top and we have used whole walnuts as decoration but you can use chopped walnuts, orange peel or even make little candied carrots.
