WILLEMIEN’S CARROT CAKE

WILLEMIEN’S CARROT CAKE

(Micro or Oven bake)
Ek maak myne in die mikrogolf en dit bly ‘n wenner in ons huis! Ek gebruik my diep silikon ring pan.

  • 1½ cups cake flour
  • 10 ml cinnamon
  • 8 ml bicarbonate of soda
  • 5 ml nutmeg
  • 3 ml salt
  • 3 cups grated carrot
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 100 g walnuts, chopped
  • 3 eggs, beaten

Sift together flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda, nutmeg  and salt.
Set aside.
Combine grated carrot, sugar, oil, walnuts and egg, mixing well.
Add dry ingredients and mix well.
Turn mixture into a deep, greased 25 cm microwave ring pan.
Place pan on an inverted plate and microwave on full power for 10 – 11 min.
The cake should shrink away slightly from edges of pan.
Turn pan during baking if the cake looks as if it is cooking unevently.
Cool slightly before inverting onto a serving plate.

  • Icing:
  • 250 ml smooth cream cheese
  • 350 g icing sugar
  • ½ tea spoon vanilla essence
  • 100 g butter

Beat cheese until smooth.
Add butter and beat well.
Add vanilla and mix thoroughly.
Gradually add icing sugar, beating well to the desired consistency.
Spread over cake
Nota:
Ek hou gewoonlik bietjie van die neute oor om bo-oor die icing ook te strooi
IN A CONVENTIONAL OVEN: Bake at 180°C for 35 – 40 min.
