Cake with Carrot and Walnut Recipe

Cake with Carrot and Walnut

This is my favorite cake recipe as it is very easy and rich in taste. I make it very often because nobody can see it in our kitchen after two days. We (my husband and I ) serve it to our friends and eat it all in such a short time. After writing this recipe, I’m planning to go to kitchen and start to make this cake.

Havuclu Cevizli Kek

•    2 cups grated carrots
•    Grated zest of 1 lemon
•    3 eggs
•    1 cup sugar
•    2 cups flour
•    1 cup butter, room temperature
•    ½ cup walnut, and a a handful chocolate chips
•    1 tsp baking powder
•    1 tbsp vanilla
Seperate the yolks of eggs from its white. Put them in seperate bowls.
Mix the yolks and sugar with your mixer for at least 10 minutes (time of mixing is very important for all cakes to bake well).
Add butter and keep mixing. After it becomes creamy, add grated carrots and zest of one lemon. This time, mix it by hand with a big spoon. Do not use mixer for this mixture from now on.
Now add flour. It seems very tough, but you will soften it with egg white. To do this, mix egg whites until it becomes as white as snow. And pour it in the cake mixture little by little.
Sprinkle some flour on walnut and chocolate chips so that they will not sink at the bottom only. Add it to the mixture.
Baking powder and vanilin are always the last things to add in a cake mixture. Add them and mix with spoon.
Pour this mixture into an oiled cake mold.
Preheat the oven to 180 C, and bake it for 50 minutes. You can check with a toothpick if your cake is done. Dip a toothpick into your cake (while it’s stil in oven). If it comes out clean, your cake is cooked enough. If not, cook it for another 5 minutes.
After you take the cake out, let it get cold enough to remove it from the cake mold.
Enjoy it with your friends and family.

    I amn going to have a go at this cake but just to make sure that 10 minutes of mixer mixing seems too long to me for the yolks and the sugar. Speed of mixer with 10 minutes … but I love your recipes so I ll have go.

    Huseyin- Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I learnt that, especially for this cake, when I mix sugar and yolks long, it rises more. Hope you love it when you try.
