My friend Louise gave me a carrot cake recipe more than 20 years ago and I have added ingredients and made it a family favourite. It’s an excellent treat to take and share with your friends and colleagues at work and I can promise you they will ask for it again.
It is a favourite too for cake sales I can guarantee that it will be the cake that sells out first. It’s also part of your 5 a day with carrots, sultanas and nuts and is made with vegetable oil.Its a family favourite that I often make for family gatherings.
I need to thank Jo Wheatley for something that makes this recipe even more special it is the addition of an orange syrup that ensures the cake stays really moist.If you wish to lower the calories you might like to halve the amount of buttercream topping.
