Over the past few months I have been making a particular carrot cake for friends and families that has become a runaway success. I have to admit that the recipe is not mine, but taken from a Finnish recipe shared by another friend.

Today I offer you a translated recipe for a delicious carrot cake, with vanilla topping.


* * * * * * *

Serves 8-10 (or a single greedy couple)

4 eggs
350g grated carrot
2 ¼ dl oil
4 ¼ dl plain flour
4 ½ dl sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon

100g soft cheese, such as Philadelphia
45g soft butter
2 dl icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar

1. Butter a baking tin and then dust with flour, and then pre-heat oven to 175C/Gas Mark 4/350F.

2. Mix the eggs, oil and grated carrot together well.

3. In another mixing bowl, place the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, and then mix together.

4. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture. Next you should slowly turn the mixture upon itself, rather than stir.

5. Pour the mixture into the baking tin and place in the centre of the oven for 50-minutes. I suggest you cover the baking tin with a sheet of grease paper to stop the top of the cake burning.

6. To make the topping, mix the fresh cheese, butter, vanilla sugar and icing sugar together. Wait until the cake has completely cooled before adding the topping.
