 Directions

Recipe for carrot cake:
1) Pre heat oven to 180C or moderate. Grease and line tin with baking paper.

2) Using electric mixers, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs gradually, then the rind. Beat until combined.

3) Add grated carrot, sifted flour, spices, nuts, and fold together using a large metal or wooden spoon, adding milk as you go. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared tin, smooth down the top of the cake. Bake for 35-40 minutes of until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre. Leave 10 minutes in the tin, before turning out to cool on a wire rack.

Butterscotch cream cheese frosting:

1) Beat butter until fluffy then add sugar, until the sugar has dissolved. Mix through vanilla.

2) Beat cream cheese with electric beater until light and creamy. Add this to butter mixture, and beat until combined and smooth. Using spatula, spread frosting over entire cake and serve.
