Carrot Cake Recipe/soft & moist -- Cooking A Dream


  You like carrot or not you will like this carrot cake. It's soft and moist, you don't really taste carrot in it. Orange flavor goes very well with it, This is my own recipe and this is how I like my carrot cake. but if you want to use vanilla, cinnamon, almond you certainly can. Although I strongly recommend that you try the way it is. 


Ingredients:
250g all purpose flour (1 3/4cups-pressed into the cup)
350g finely grated carrot(2 cups -pressed into the cup)
200g sugar(1 cup)
4 eggs
11/2 tsp baking powder
1tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
180ml oil(3/4 cup)
1tbsp orange juice 
3tbsp orange zest
2tbsp raisin

pan size: 20cm x 6cm (8" x 2")
baking time: 170°C(340°F)  for 90mins(10mins more or less)

Method:
  1. coarsely grate carrot in a food possessor 
  2. sift flour baking powder and baking soda together
  3. in a big bowl beat egg sugar salt orange juice and zest until pale
  4. add oil slowly and beat
  5. gently fold in flour add 
  6. mix carrot
  7. pour the batter in a parchment paper lined baking pan
  8. sprinkle raisin on top then bake


Notes:
1.Do not over mix the batter
2.keep an eye during baking. if you see the top is burning, place an aluminium foil on top as soon as you get a nice brown colour.
3. baking time could be more or less 10- 15 mins. insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake to check. if it comes out clean it's done. If batter sticks on it bake few more minutes.

    1. When you overmix, the gluten in the flour releases too fast and the cake may become dense.

  3. Can this done in a microwave (convection mode)? If so what should be the temperature and baking time for half the ingredients. Also is the orange juice used only for flavour or it has some other impact on the baking process.

    1. Hello there! I always bake cakes in the convection mode. Its works the same as an oven. The temprsture will be the same, but the timing will be reduced... First bake it for 50 min,then check . If it's not dine yet,then increse the time by 10min until its fully done .

    2. Also,orange juice was for flavour as well as to hide the smell of eggs. I didn't put orange juice,instead i added vanilla extract. And sorry for the typos :)

    1. You don't need to add any orange juice or orange zest since it's only for flavour but a good substitute is vanilla extract
