Carrots

Carrot and Walnut Cake

This is the lightest and most moist carrot and walnut cake I have ever made. Have you ever had hazelnut cake? – well this is similar. You would not think I have made this cake with carrots as the thought of carrots in a cake may make you believe it would be heavy – in fact it is very light, and when you bite into it you get a lovely soft and crunchy sensation. I made it using coarsely chopped walnuts and decorated it using chopped almonds.

I love nuts and they are good for you. You can also really taste the zest of the lemon and the rum, it’s so nice, you can have second helping without feeling too guilty! – Sometimes a girl hat got to spoil herself. This carrot and walnut cake is a great way to do this!

Also, carrots are really high in vitamin A, which we all need plenty of – a lack of this vitamin can cause poor vision, including night vision – so it’s not an old wives tale!

This recipe is a great way of using left over carrots, and you can always freeze the cake for later use as it freezes very well. I do hope you will make it and you will enjoy it as much as my family and I do.
