Recipe Testing: Yellow Carrot Cake with Cream-Cheese-Frosting from “Lisbeths”

SONY DSCSONY DSCHappy Easter to all of you! What a wonderful occasion to bake a “Torte” and this is very special one: with yellow carrots fresh from the market!SONY DSCEven tough my “canton” (or region) Argovia is very famous for carrot cake (or as we call it “Rüeblitorte”), this Torte is neither based on the traditional recipe (which would be without layers and with a lemon juice-confectioner’s sugar frosting instead of cream cheese) nor on one of my own creation. I discovered the recipe a week ago on “Lisbeths” and decided to make it my “Oster-Torte”.SONY DSCThe recipe worked out very well indeed! As I own only one 16cm (about 6 inch) round cake pan I had to bake all the layers in succession which took a lot of time – still it was worth it! Besides from the that, the recipe was very quick and easy to follow. It will give you a moist and quite spicy cake, sumptuous and rich (so prepare small slices 😉 ). We all liked it a lot. If I bake it again I might think about lightening the frosting up a bit, maybe with Quark or something of that sort. Still, it is also wonderful the way it ist!SONY DSCSo, Easter is not ever yet – get your recipe right HERE, right now and Happy Baking!SONY DSC
