The ultimate Easter carrot cake

















I wanna make a Easter carrot cake for these time, finally I can make, this recipe is moist, simple and yumm with a mascarpone or cheam cheese cover, really nice!
Hope you enjoy!
Happy Easter


Source : Good to know Co. UK

Ingredients

250 ml sun/olive oil(sunflower and olive oil)
225 grs. sugar
3 large eggs
250 grs self raising flour
2 cups of coarsely grated carrots
Eggs and bunnies and flower to garnish (I use marzipan decorations (Entre Lagos)

For the topping

1 cream cheese or mascarpone (250 grs.)
100grs. og greek yogurt or plain yogurt
80 grs. of icing sugar
Note: I added the yogurt because sometimes the cream cheese is not sof and with yogurt is nice to spread over the cake.

Method
Preheat the oven at 180 ° c
Grease and line a 18/20 cm. round tin with baking parchment.
Whisk the oil and sugar together then whisk in the eggs one at a time.
Gently fold in the flour followed by the grated carrots. Mix gently till combined then turn into the prepared tin.
Bake for 40 minutes until golden brown and in a coktail stick inserted into the centre comes clean. Cool in the tin about 15 minutes.
Then let cool in a wire rack.

Mix together the cream cheese with the sugar and add the yogurt.
(If you like add some yellow drops to have a nice color)
Mix well. Until have a smooth cream to cover.
Spread over the top and sides of the cake with a palette knife.
Decorated with bunnies or chocolate eggs.
