Carrot cake

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 15 min


  • 200g margarine (softened)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup carrots (grated)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 340g brown sugar
  • 340g plain flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder


In a bowl beat the margarine with electric beater until it becomes smooth.

Add brown sugar in it and beat at least for 5 mins to mix sugar well.

Now add egg yolks and just mix them into the sugar margarine mixture.

In a separate bowl beat egg whites to form smooth foam. Make sure that you don't beat them too much otherwise liquid sets in the bottom which will make your cake hard, about 5 minutes.

Mix the egg whites in the margarine mixture and add half cup of orange juice to the mixture.

Sift onto a plate flour, cinnamon powder and baking powder and using a wooden spoon fold the mixture in the flour.

Add some 3/4 of the carrot to the cake batter and mix well.

Pour the cake batter onto the baking cake pan of your own choice and sprinkle rest of the carrots on the top and put into the preheated oven at 180 degree C or 350 degree F for at least 25-30 mins.

You can check by inserting knife tip into the cake if it comes out clean then cake is ready.

Once the cake is at room temperature pour the remaining orange juice over the cake and put into the fridge for few minutes to chill.
