How To Make: Easy Carrot Cake Recipe

Easy Carrot Cake Recipe

Step 1

First make the marshmallows by grating the carrots, about 2 tsp. carrots. Put the eggs and dry ingredients, sifted flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, soda and nutmeg in a bowl.

Step 2

Put the oil and sugar in another bowl and whisk until the sugar dissolves. You start adding half of the flour a little at a time until it is all absorbed. Add the egg mixture together with the remaining half of the flour.

Step 3

You mix all this well until you get a cake-like consistency. Add chopped (or ground) walnuts to the resulting mixture.

Step 4

From the mixture thus obtained, bake two marshmallows in an oven at 160-170 degrees and periodically insert a toothpick. When the stick is dry after removing, the sponge is ready.

Step 5

To prepare the cream, use the ingredients described above. We’ve made this recipe with both mascarpone and cream cheese, we won’t mention brands, but it’s up to you. It worked out in both cases.

Step 6

Beat the cheese with the vanilla and sugar until a consistency that can be easily applied without visible lumps.

Step 7

The rest is pure and simple gluing the crusts together, applying the top layer of mascarpone and decorating to your liking. In this case, we use a real small carrot for greater effect, but you can decorate according to your taste and idea.
