Carrot Cake
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C and place rack in centre of oven. Butter two 23 x 5cm cake pans and line the bottoms of the pans with a circle of parchment paper.

  • Step 2

    Toast the pecans or walnuts until lightly browned and fragrant, cool and then chop coarsely.

  • Step 3

    Peel and finely grate the carrots. In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and ground cinnamon.

  • Step 4

    In another bowl beat the eggs until frothy. Gradually add the sugar and beat until the batter is thick and light coloured. Add the oil in a steady stream and then beat in the vanilla extract. Add the flour mixture and beat until incorporated. With a large rubber spatula fold in the grated carrots and chopped nuts. Evenly divide the batter between the two prepared pans and bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
