Carrot Cake
  • 250g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 120g white sugar
  • 120g brown sugar
  • 230g Flora Buttery
  • 250g carrots, grated
  • 100g plain yogurt
  • 4 eggs
  • 80g pecans, chopped
  • 100g raisins or sultanas
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp mixed spice
Cream cheese frosting
  • 340g cream cheese
  • 140g Flora Buttery, fridge temperature
  • 200g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pecan nuts (to decorate)
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4.
  2. Melt Flora Buttery and set aside. Peel and grate the carrots, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, white and brown sugar, and the spices (cinnamon, ginger and mixed spice).
  4. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, melted Flora Buttery and yogurt into the mixture. Whisk it all together.
  5. Mix in grated carrots, chopped pecans and raisins.
  6. Divide mixture between two greased and bottom lined 20cm sandwich tins.
  7. Bake for approximately 30 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. If any wet mixture clings to the skewer, return to the oven for 5 mins, then check again.
  8. When fully cooked, turn out and leave to cool in the tins.
  9. Prepare the icing by beating together the Flora spread, icing sugar and vanilla extract until smooth.
  10. Gradually add the cream cheese. Continue to whisk until the frosting thickens to a stiff consistency. Chill until needed.
  11. Sandwich together the 2 layers of cake with half of the cream cheese frosting.
  12. Top with the remaining icing and decorate with chopped pecan nuts.
