As I've already stated, I'm far from being Nigella Lawson's twin. But I have a love of cake, and so I often try simple recipes to get my sugary fix. I was a bit daunted at first trying to bake carrot cake. I couldn't, and still don't, understand how you really can put carrot into a cake mix. I mean carrot! As in the vegetable! Really? But I guess it works, and this simple recipe was very easy to follow.
What you will need is:
Make sure the cake is completely cooled before you add the icing. For this you will need:
Beat together the frosting ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Apparently you want the icing about as runny as single cream. Then drizzle over the cake. I also decided to add some orange and lemon zest.
And Viola!! A scrummy carrot cake
