This is a great carrot cake recipe that is easy to make. It calls for self-raising flour, carrots, walnuts and cinnamon - no other spices, pineapple, raisins, etc. The Cream cheese icing is also easy to make and really delicious. Feel free to reduce the amount of sugar in the cake if you prefer your cakes less sweet.

How easy is this carrot cake? No grating - everything's mixed in a blender or food processor till smooth. You don't have to use the icing, but try it - it's gorgeous!

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.

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.

A delicious and hearty carrot cake made with wholemeal flour and wheatgerm for a nutritious twist on the classic recipe. Can be enjoyed as is, or top the cooled cake with your favourite cream cheese icing.
