Carrot cake recipe

Sponge cake
300 grs carrots
2 eggs
50 ml butter
125 gr flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
150 gr sugar
30 gr walnuts
30 gr raisins
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 grated lemon rind + 1/2 grated orange rind

Cream Cheese Frosting
200 gr cream cheese
50 gr butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar
200 gr cream
1/2 grated lemon rind + 1/2 grated orange rind
1/4 orange juice

Preheat oven to 180 celsius. Grate carrots in your Thermomix, speed 4. Add walnuts and raisins and grate a few seconds, speed 4. Place eggs, butter and grated lemon and orange rind and mix using speed 3 1/2.

In a bowl, place flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract, nutmeg and aniseed and beat them for a few minutes. Then, place this mixture to the Thermomix glass and mix a few seconds, speed 6.

Pour into a greased recipient and bake for over 40-45 mins. Once you've got the sponge cake, cut it into two pieces and fill it with cream cheese frosting. Cover it and spread your cake with cream cheese frosting.
Cream cheese frosting:
Whip the cream, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix a few seconds using speed 4.

I did it with the Thermomix, but you can also do it without it. It is delicious, I promise. Do you want to try it?
