puppetman, carrot cake has been a regular topic on this MB so if you have a look through you'll find several threads with recipes e. g. "Best Carrot Cake Recipe? " which is a little further down on page 1. Hope that helps. You'll also find more Carrot Cake recipes at:- http://trademecooks.net.nz/viewtopic. php? f=15&t=646

Here's a good one From off here, although I can't recall the original poster's name, she was kind enough to go to the trouble to get it from the cafe. It keeps for ages and is really moist, especially if you grate the carrot really finely and process the apricots and sultanas a bit. *MOTUEKA GRAIN & GRAPE CARROT CAKE
(CAFE now called The Mooring) 2 Cups of wholemeal Flour 2 Cups of sugar 2 tspn of Mixed spice 2 tspn Cinnamon 2 tspn of Baking Soda 1 Cup of Walnuts 1/2 Cup of Pumpkin seeds 1 Cup of Sultanas 1 Cup of chopped up dried Apricots 750gm Grated Carrots 1 1/2 Cups oil 4 eggs 2 tspn Vanilla Mix all the ingredients together except the ones above, (carrots oil eggs vanilla) add grated carrots, mix well whisk up 1 1/2 Cups oils with the 4 eggs add the vanilla, then Fold Carefully into the dry ingredients DO NOT OVER MIX Bake at 170oc for up to 2 hours keep an eye on it, Dont forget to line the tin, makes 1 large cake

the recipe at #5 is on the link at #2 The original poster of that recipe was hairchopper1 who at the time was busily packing, amongst everything else that needed to be done. hairchopper1, if you've made the move south I hope it went well and that you and yours are settling nicely into the deep south, and if you're still in the process of moving - all the best for the big move. :-))

moist cake I use the edmonds recipe which recommends 180 degrees for 40 mins. In a 20 cm dish any longer is too dry. Edmonds icing is 2 tbsp butter, 1/2 tsp grated lemon rind, 1/4 cup cream cheese, 1 cup icing sugar. For a creamier icing use 1/2 cream cheese.

yeah, the moteuka one was high class! quick and easy is the kitchen whisk one!

Icing 250g carton cream cheese ¼ cup icing sugar, sifted 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind ½ cup toasted muesli

#12 correction for creamier icing 1/2 cup cream cheese. Also I grate the three cups of carrot onto a chopping board then use a large chef knife for a couple of minutes to cut it into finer bits, gives more juice too.
