What is your go-to cake to comfort on a rainy day? Amongst my favorite will always be carrot cake! 🥕🥧⁠

A couple of weeks ago a good friend asked me for a carrot cake without oil, and obviously, I needed to bake it. I was surprised by the outcome, you don’t risk any of the moisture and flavor.⁠

170 g plain flour⁠
1 tsp baking powder level⁠
1 tsp cinnamon level⁠
1/2 tsp ginger level⁠
1/4 tsp mixed spice level⁠
1/4 tsp nutmeg level⁠
1/2 tsp salt level⁠
170 g light brown sugar⁠
2 medium eggs room temperature and lightly beaten⁠
150 ml apple muss.⁠
200 g grated carrots about 2 medium carrots⁠
100 g walnuts finely chopped⁠

Cream Cheese Drip Icing⁠

90 g full-fat cream cheese room temperature⁠
50 g icing sugar sifted⁠
1/2 tsp vanilla extract level⁠


🔸Preheat the oven to 170°/150° fan.⁠
🔸Line a 1kg/2lb loaf tin with baking paper.⁠
🔸In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients.⁠
🔸Add the finely chopped walnuts to the dry ingredients and whisk to combine.⁠
🔸Add the apple muss and lightly beaten eggs to the dry ingredients. Fold until almost fully combined.⁠
🔸Add the grated carrots and fold with the spatula until combined. Try not to overmix, but make sure no pockets of flour remain.⁠
🔸Pour this mixture into your prepared loaf tin and level it out.⁠
Place into your preheated oven and bake for around 50 minutes to 1 hour. I’d recommend checking that it is baked for 45 minutes, and every 5 minutes after that.⁠
🔸Once baked place onto a wire cooling rack to cool completely before removing from the loaf tin.⁠

Cream Cheese Icing⁠

🔸In a medium bowl using a spatula mix, the softened cream cheese, and vanilla extract, add a few tablespoons at the time, add the icing sugar, beating until smooth. Distribute on a cold cake. Decorate with nuts.⁠
