Homemade Carrot Cake

Dah lama sebenarnya aku tak buat cake sebab nak try to cut our sugar intake.  Tiba2 dalam FB newsfeed,  ternampak this carrot cake recipe yg nampak sedap sangat. Bila check pantry,  semua ingredients available,  tak payah nak keluar beli barang.  Fuh! Apa lagi..  Aku pun terus masuk ke dapur and sagat the carrot. 

Verdict : carrot cake yg sangat sedap.  Rasa mcm nak jilat bekas tu..  Hahahaha

Adapted slightly from I am Baker

1 cups brown sugar (if sugar a bit sweet,  add another 1/4 cup of white sugar)
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup raisins
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 1/4 cups grated carrots

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare two 8-inch round baking pans.
Beat the sugar, oil, vanilla and eggs with a whisk (I used fork) until it is a light yellow.
In a separate bowl sift together flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt.
Fold in the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined.
Fold raisins, nuts, and the carrots.
Divide the batter equally between the pans. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow the cakes to cool completely on a wire rack.
Cover in cream cheese frosting.

Cream cheese frosting
250 gram cream cheese
3/4 cup icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
125 gram butter

Beat the cream cheese with vanilla until light and soft, add butter and icing sugar.  Beat until it is light and fluffy.
