We bring to you our favorite recipe of the delicious Classic Carrot Cake with a Cream Cheese Frosting. The strong flavours of cinnamon and nutmeg along with freshly shredded carrot makes this one a winner. Preparing this Carrot Cake recipe was mad fun. The only tedious bit was the shredding of carrots but then the end result makes each step seem like a joy ride. Bake away!

The Elements:

1 cup (200 grams) light brown sugar, packed (or dark brown sugar)

¾ cup (180 ml) vegetable oil

¼ cup (60 grams) yogurt

3 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

½ teaspoon salt

2 cups (260 grams) very finely grated carrots

½ cup walnuts

½ cup raisins

For The Frosting

2 cups cream cheese

¼ cup unsalted butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 ½ cups powdered sugar

Formula:

Preheat oven to 350˚F degrees. Grease a springform pan and keep aside.

In a large bowl combine brown sugar and oil. Beat in the yogurt until fully combined – about 60 seconds. The mixture will be gritty and thick. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Now mix in the vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. With a spatula, manually stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until just combined and all flour pockets are gone — do not overmix!

Fold in the finely shredded carrots, raisins, and walnuts. Pour into the prepared springform pan

Bake for 32-38 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Do not overbake, or it will dry it out. Check the cake at 30 minutes, then again at the 32-minute mark. Our cake took exactly 34 minutes. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.

For The Frosting

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a large bowl with a mixer until blended. Add sugar in installments, beating after each addition.

Now smear the frosting on your yummy cake!
