This carrot cake is chock-a-block with carrots - no pineapple, no raisins, no sultanas like you find in some other carrot cake recipes. Enjoy this carrot cake with your favourite cream cheese icing recipe.
Be patient - this smells fantastic while it is cooking - wait until it has cooled before serving, though!
I was given this about 20 years ago, baked by a cookery teacher friend. I've never dared change it, it's been such an absolute family favourite, always gorgeous, never lets you down. We particularly love the frosting, which uses a little brown sugar instead of icing sugar, giving a more subtle flavour. Some like the pineapple pieces and nuts, others don't: they affect texture rather than taste so use as preferred.
This easy carrot cake is a great choice for baking with the kids and results in a tasty, moist cake perfect alongside a cuppa or some juice.
Don't be afraid to indulge with this low-fat recipe that still tastes great. It's really handy to make this recipe in a muffin or bun tin. That way, you can freeze them individually.
