Default The dish that gives me hope for mankind

I know this is kind of silly but I love carrot cake. And I think any species that can come up with making a cake out of a vegetable and then adding cream cheese as a frosting. I mean some serious good mojo there. Whoever puts cream cheese on their raw carrots? Totally pointless post except, whenever I eat carrot cake (in moderation of course ) I don't feel we are totally without promise as a species.

Me too! I love carrot cake and it's not even easy to find it here!
I once made it myself which wasn't that succesfull...
But I did found a perfect recipe of brownies which are only one WW point.

Little things that keeps me going I guess...

Here is a slightly lighter version for you to try. I've made it several times and it is very good.

Orange Carrot Cake Serves 9-12
Cake: 1 cup self-rising flour 2 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar 1/4 cup unswtned applesauce
1 tsp. cinnamon 1-1/2cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup vegetable oil 2 tsp. grated orange rind

Fluffy Cream Cheese Icing: 2 oz. light cream cheese
2 Tbsp. softened butter 1/2 tsp. grated orange rind
1-1/2 cups icing sugar 1 tsp. (approx.) milk or oj

Cake: Grease 8" square baking pan; set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar & cinnamon. Beat in oil; beat 1 minute. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating for 30 seconds after each addition. Beat in applesauce. Stir in carrots & orange rind. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Bake in 350 oven for 35 minutes or until golden & top springs back when toughed lightly & cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Run a knife around the edge of pan. Let cake cool in pan on wire rack 10 minutes, then remove from pan & let cool completely.

Icing: In medium bowl beat together cream chees, butter & icing sugar until fluffy. Beat in orange rind. Beat in enough milk or orange juice to make icing fluffy & speadable. Spread icing evenly over cake; garnish with grated orange rind.

Thanks a lot Ninety!

I definetly will give it a go soon ( although after I figured out how to convert the American weights! Have some difficulties with cups, oz. etc.) Would be so much easier if you all were using kilo's and gram .............

Anyway, thanks again!

Twinstar - do they carry US cups and measures at your local department store? One set of each and you'd be all set. Our Pyrex glass measures have both metric and *the easy one* on them.

Hi Rusty,

Friend of my is in Washington at this moment and she promised to bring me one of those. Thanks for the reply!
Problem solved!
I noticed that the variety of WW-recipes in VS-measures is enormous once you know where to look! The Dutch recipes I've so far are very boring and tasteless

Bye!
