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.
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 350º 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.
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 .............
Friend of my is in Washington at this moment and she promised to bring me one of those. Thanks for the reply!
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
