Need to make one for DS's birthday.

I want a moist (I hate that word) one that I can make the day before and smother with cream cheese frosting.

Hi Superbunny

This is the most fantastic carrot cake recipe i have come across and always use it myself. It is always lovely and moist (ewww!)
It does take a while to cook and can work out to be quite expensive but it is well, well worth it!

3 eggs
7floz sunflower oil
2tsp vanilla essence
14oz soft brown sugar
10oz plain wholemeal flour (or plain white)
1tsp ground nutmeg
2tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/2tsb bicarb
12oz grated carrot
2floz milk

Grease + line 8" cake tin.
Oven 250f / 130c (gas mark 1)
Mix eggs, oil, vanilla, milk and sugar. Sift in flour, spices and bicarb.
Beat well.
Fold in carrots.
Pour into tin and bake for 1 3/4 - 2 1/4 hours.

Topping: 6oz Philly, 2oz butter, 4oz icing sugar. Beat together.

Let me know how you get on if you use it x
