My family loves carrot cakes. What better time than now to try making! I used to think that making this cake takes alot of effort and still think so, more than banana cake due to the need to grate carrots, zest and juice oranges. Tried a recipe sometime ago and it was a disaster. The cake did not turn out looking shabby but texture was like ‘kueh’ or pudding like instead of being airy and spongy. The failed attempt also took longer to bake/ cook.
As am not a fan of whipping up cream cheese and icing, will be following the recipe of Cooking a dream. I’d recommend this recipe because the result was soft, moist and fluffy cake.
Verdict – great recipe to follow! Cake tasted very orangey which was very nice but may not be carrot cake like. But because it’s so soft and moist, and I love citrus, can have it all the time! For those who prefer more carrot taste, reduce the orange zest by half.
If you try the recipe or have any tips to share, pls feel free to comment. Would love to learn from anyone! Thanks in advance and have a great weekend!
