Gladkokken's carrot cake - dangerously good

I am very fond of carrot cake and should I first make a cake then it should be good. To me, a good carrot cake is juicy, delicious taste of spices, carrot and a delicious icing. This is an upgrade of the first edition I posted. The recipe is almost the same, but here there is a little more cream cheese and the cake is with a simple method 4 layers. It gives a perfect distribution between the cream cheese and the cake itself. I topped the cake with a little grated raw carrot. If you are going to try a good carrot cake, you have to try this one.

Step 1

It is important that the ingredients have about the same temperature when you mix the batter together. Then find 4 large eggs and pour into a food processor together with the sugar.

Measure out flour and spices and pour into a bowl. Clean the carrots (I used a large packet), run into small pieces in a blender or grate with the finest part of the grater. Squeeze out some of the juice.

Mix gently with a spatula. Pour in the oil and the grated carrots and mix gently.

Step 5

Find a long pan and place on baking paper. Pour the batter over and distribute evenly on the tray. Gently tap the tray a few times against the bench for a completely even result. Bake at 190 degrees on the bottom rack in the oven for about 32-35 minutes. Cool and remove the baking paper. Divide into 4 equal pieces.
