Was looking through my recipe box over Queens Birthday weekend when I came across the recipe for this cake. It was requested by a reader of a cooking magazine, a Foodtown cooking publication. I took aphotocopy the page. The recipe is essentially correct but it said the quantity of carrot is two cups of grated carrot, not 750 grams. I think the quantity of carrot was doubled in the recipe earlier in this thread.

Here you go Part 1: 2 cups each wholemeal flour, sugar and carrot. 2 teaspoons each cinnamon, mixed spice and baking soda. Half cup each walnuts, sunflower seeds, chopped dried apricots. 1 cup sultanas. Quarter cup pumpkin seeds. 4 eggs. 1½ cups soy oil. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Lightly grease and line a 23cm cake pan.

Part 2 Combine the dry ingredients. Add the carrots, walnuts, sunflower seeds, apricots, pumpkin seeds and sultanas. Beat together the eggs and oil. Stir into the dry mix. Spread into the prepared pan and bake for 1 - 1½ hours. Icing: 125g cream cheese, 50g soft butter, 1½ cups icing sugar. Beat the cream cheese, butter and icing sugar together until smooth. Spread over the cake. The cake can be decorated with chopped apricots, walnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. End

I made the Motueka Cake using the 750g of carrot. Boy what a huge amount of carrot. Had a nice flavor, but seemed very mushy to me... thought Id try using less carrot.

The place is now "THE MOORING" If you still need it try the owners. They'll know the old owners. PSMotueka's "Red Beret" has nice cake (I think).

Hi all - im new to this page I have many a question to do with carrot cakes. Is it best to use both Wholemeal and Plain flour in a carrot cake? ? ? Would you put walnuts in the mix or sprinkle on top?

I have just made the motueka cake and it looks fabulous. I put brown paper over it for the last hour and making it again, I would do this from the beginning. Took all the 2hours though. Taking it to work for a "cook off" competition so here's hoping lol
