This carrot cake is a success! Everybody loves it and I do get a lot of compliments when I make it! What they don’t know is that this recipe is very easy and practical - no secrets!
What do you need:
a small amount of softened unsalted butter and flour to grease
3 or 4 medium carrots
2 cups of sugar
1 cup of oil
2 cups of self-raising flour
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4. Rub a medium size cake tin with butter and flour. Set aside. Peel the carrots and cut in small pieces. Put the pieces on a blender with the eggs and mix for about 2 minutes. Add the sugar and the oil to the mixture and blend once more until smooth.
Sift the flour on a big mixing bowl. Add the blender mixture to the flour and mix it well and gently with a fouer. Put the batter in the prepared cake pan. Bake for about 30 minutes.
For the chocolate topping I combine sugar, milk, cocoa and butter in a saucepan and bring to boil in over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture has thickened.
I hope you enjoy it! I love baking this to eat with my friends while watching a movie! :-)
