Serves 2

¾ cup grain sugar

150 ml sunflower oil

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

150gms or about 3 medium grated carrot

100 gms raisins

Grated zest of 1orange

1 ½ cups Refined flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon powder

½ tsp grated nutmeg (freshly grated will give you the best flavour)

Cream Cheese Frosting:

¼ cup unsalted butter at room temperature

200 gms cream cheese at room temperature

2 cups confectioners (powdered or icing) sugar, sifted

1 tsp pure vanilla extract or essence

For the frosting:

  • Add the sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs to a mixer and beat till well mixed.
  • In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Fold the flour mix into the egg mixture. Do not mix too vigorously, just enough to combine. Add the raisins and carrots.
  • Pour the mixture into the baking pans and bake for 40- 45 minutes, or until they are firm and springy when pressed it in the center.
  • Remove and let the cakes cool completely on a wire rack.
  • To assemble, slice the cakes into ½ inch thick slices and arrange on the serving dish, alternating each layer with cream cheese frosting. Serve with candied carrot slices.
