This cake is my new favourite. It really is the best alternative for the classic carrot cake. Because the cream cheese frosting isn’t completely covering the cake, leaving it partially naked the cake doesn’t become overwhelmingly sweet. I’ve tried versions with pineapple and coconut and I love them too but this is a class higher. I would of loved to have been able to use fresh fruit but it simply wasn’t available. The frozen and canned fruit worked and if it tastes this good it can only get better by using fresh fruit.
It was a hit at our housewarming / birthday bash last weekend which meant only one slice for me. I’ll give it another attempt soon… I’ll have more time then to work on the presentation. After watching the Dutch Bake Off (Heel Holland Bakt) + The Great British Bake Off I’m determined more than ever to become star baker 😉 I’m my biggest critic so the judging is going to be tough.
