How to Make Carrot Cake
- Start by preparing the carrots. Peel and grate them on a fine grater.
- In a large bowl, combine sugar, vegetable oil, and eggs. Beat everything together until smooth.
- In another bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Then gradually add this dry mixture to the wet one, constantly stirring.
- Add the grated carrots and chopped nuts to the dough and mix well.
- Pour the dough into a baking form, previously greased with oil and sprinkled with flour.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 40-50 minutes. You can check the readiness of the cake with a wooden skewer - it should come out of the cake dry.
- While the cake is cooling, prepare the cream. Beat the cream cheese with powdered sugar, then add cream and vanilla extract. Beat until you get a fluffy cream.
- When the cake has completely cooled, cut it into two parts and layer with cream. Then cover the top and sides of the cake with the remaining cream.
- Decorate the cake as desired, for example, with nuts or marzipan carrots.
