This recipe taken from Whipped. This is probably the most common variation of carrot cake, which is with walnut, but with a slight twist, using cooked and mashed carrot instead of the usual shredded.
liquid ingredients: egg, oil and vanilla essence
i steamed the carrot and mashed it(recipe called for carrot blended in food processor or blender, but i am halving the ingredients as only 1 carrot left), a packet of walnut
mixing flour mixture into egg mixture
adding carrot and walnut
quite a thick batter
turn out as a homely carrot cake, taste pretty good too. I am kinda undecided whether this carrot cake with walnut is better or the one with raisin is better. Both taste good, the carrot raisins loaf taste more moist mostly due to juicy raisins.
That concludes my carrot baking saga
the failed carrot cake

Carrot Raisin Loaf

This recipe taken from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, moist cake with chokeful of juicy raisins. Above is all dry ingredients measured: flour, sugar, cinamon powder, ginger powder, grated nutmeg, salt etc.
grated carrot and a pack of raisin
best to use canola oil, as specified in recipe, as it has mild smell and taste, and would not interfere with flavourings of the cake.
wet ingredients: egg + oil

sift the dry ingredients, grated the nutmeg too coarsely, therefore the brown patch above is nutmeg which could not be sifted. (i sift 3 times)
mix in dry ingredient(sifted flour mixture) into egg mixture
mix in carrot and raisins
suppose to put into loaf tin, but doesn’t have any, so will do a flat carrot cake instead 🙂
moist cake, somehow the raisins taste juicy in the cake. yummy
baking times: approx 50 mins
the hardest part in baking or cooking is the purchase of ingredients, nudging yourself to get it going, it is hardest to start, but once you get the ingredients ready, the actual process of mixing is quite easy.

Carrot Cake

I like carrot like and wanted the make one, so i chose one of the recipe, which is from Imbi & Itchy which looks simple enough. Above are eggs, oil and sugar

cross section
it taste awful, oily, dense, and i tried a bit, keep in fridge from few days, then threw it away.
it is most probably due to the recipe not specifying amount specifically, and half way thru, saw the recipe didn’t specify the oven temperature, urgh, probably this recipe is not a complete one, and their is a comment saying the cake turn out awful and i am already half way making it… oh well, it is always fun to play and throw food sometimes 🙂
