This easy recipe is an adaptation of the classic, but is even easier to make. Don't be alarmed by the Guinness though - it's simply used to develop the texture of the cake by making it extra dense and moist. This cake almost ends up pudding like, and goes down a treat when served with cream or ice cream.

This is a perfect cake for celebrations which need to be made ahead of time. It is a stiff cake with a moist texture so perfect for carving for novelty cakes. Wonderful torted with jam and buttercream or just left and covered with marzipan/icing, this cake is so versatile you can pretty much do anything with it! It will never curdle and is so simple even my 3 year old has made it, never fails and always tastes perfect!

Pecans add a lovely crunch to this delcious carrot cake but feel free to leave them out if you don't like nuts. The cream cheese icing is what takes this classic carrot cake to the next level!
