    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.

    A gorgeous carrot cake that couldn't be easier to make! The chocolate icing is something deliciously different, and goes surprisingly well with carrot cake!

    I wanted a cake that was healthy to eat but also easy to make and bake. You can eat it plain or coat the top with icing sugar. It is fat and calorie friendly.

    A super easy version of carrot cake using carrot baby food. Look for carrot baby food that isn't savoury. It can be mixed with other fruits (for example, there's a Pumpkin, carrot and mango baby food in markets now). Cut these into slices after icing with your favourite cream cheese icing recipe.

    An incredibly moist carrot cake, with the wonderful addition of pecans, pineapple and cranberries. Fill and ice the three layers of this cake with cream cheese icing, if desired.

    So this is my recipe for carrot cake, it's one my family loves and ask me to make again and again. There's a lot of cream cheese topping but it's not necessary to put that much on the cake.
