Carrot cake

Hey you!


A few days ago I had one of these on which I couldn't really find the motivation to start working. So instead, I just baked a delicious carrot cake with a thin walnutcrumble-layer. Really I didn't know carrots in cake could be such a succes! 








 

What you maybe aren't able to see is the crumble layer. That's really what makes this cake extra-delicious! There is a lot of cinnamon and walnuts in it. And that smells so great. I also added almond extract to the cake and that smells even better. Just never try to taste it  on its own haha, 'cause it's way too concentrated...

For the lovers, here is the recipe:

What you need:
Cake:
  • 120 gr butter
  • 250 gr soft brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, slightly stirred
  • 3/4 tablespoon of almond extract
  • 150 gr flour
  • 1/2 talbespoon baking powder
  • 75 gr raisins (yellow or brown ones)
  • 40 gr walnuts
  • 75 gr grated carrots (very very tiny pieces)
  • optional: 1/2 tablespoon of baking soda (I didn't add it, but the cookbook says I should, oowh, bad me haha)

Cruble layer:
  • 30 gr walnuts
  • 40 gr brown sugar
  • 25 gr flour
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 12 gr butter, melted
What you do:
  1. Preheat the over at 180°C. 
  2. Stir the butter with the sugar in a bowl so it's airy and then stir the eggs and almong extract trough it. 
  3. Filter the flour, baking soda and baking powder above the bowl.
  4. Spoon the raisins, grated carrots and walnuts trough the batter.
  5. Then pour the batter in a spring cake tin.
  6. After that it's time to make the cruble layer. So mix all the ingredients and spread it over the batter in the tin.
  7. Bake the cake 45-55 minutes. I did it aroung 45 minutes, because I was afraid the cake would be dry. So now it still was a bit sticky, so lovely!
  8. After 45 minutes, let te cake cool down and... EAT IT <3
If you'll tried the recipe, please tell me what you think of it. Also if you've ever eaten carrot cake before. I didn't know it was so delicious. Really, I might bake this for a party. And now my friends are kinda curious, because I told about the cake at school. Hihi :3

Anyway, today was very boring. I had eight hours, which included two test... Pff, I'm happy I'm home now. 

We had a lot of fun during geography class (:

However, we've only one short day left and then... there is a full week holidays! Which I'm really looking forward to! And tomorrow I've only got school until like 12 a.m. So it isn't even that bad anymore.

How are you going?
