The required ingredients
For the ground:
- 200 g of flour
- 1 packet of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 200 ml of oil
- 100 g raisins
- 100 g of walnuts
- 200 g brown sugar
- 200 g of grated carrots
- 4 big eggs
- a grated peel of an orange
For the cream:
- 400 g mascarpone
- 200 ml of cream or condensed milk
- 100 g brown sugar
- Orange syrup
- the juice of an orange + 1 packet of gelatine as desired
Decorate the carrot cake to your heart’s content
Step 1: Put the eggs, sugar and oil in a bowl and stir well. You do not need to bang on snow, it is enough if the ingredients mix well.
Step 2: Add the raisins, the orange peel and the nuts.
If desired, you can caramelise the nuts in advance with a little sugar.
Step 3: Add the carrots. But here is the little trick. Before you put them in, you should drain them after rubbing. Press it off with a kitchen towel, but not too much, just drain off the unnecessary moisture. Our advice is to roughly grate half of the carrots and the other half fine.
Step 4 : Mix well the ingredients. In another bowl mix the flour, the baking powder, the soda and the cinnamon.
Step 5: Add the moist ingredients and stir well. You should get a cake-like mix.
Step 6: Bake in a springform. Put baking paper on the floor first and also oil the sides. Bake at 180 ° or 160 ° with hot air for about 40 to 45 minutes.
Step 7: Take the cake bottom out of the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes in the mold. Then remove and place on a wire rack until it gets completely cold.
Step 8: Using a large knife or tear-resistant yarn, cut the soil into two or three thinner soils. Our advice is to use a bread knife and a kitchen board to help. The kitchen board will make it easier to separate the individual cake trays without damaging them.

The preparation of the cream and the composition
Step 1: Peel the peel of an orange with a sharp knife and remove the white soft inside as much as possible. Cut them down and boil in 100 ml of water with 50 g of sugar. Cook until the syrup thickens and allow to cool.
Step 2: Mix the condensed milk with the sugar. If you use sweetened condensed milk, you should reduce the sugar slightly.
Step 3: When the sugar has completely dissolved, add the mascarpone and stir until a homogeneous cream is obtained. If this seems too fluid for you, you can dissolve a gelatin packet in orange juice (from an orange) and use it as a thickener.
Step 4: Allow the cream to cool well and then mix with the orange syrup.
Step 5: Now you start to assemble the carrot cake. Help yourself with a firm base, such as B. with the kitchen board and the ring of Springform. Arrange the floors by adding some of the cream in between. In the end, however, most of the cream must be applied.
Step 6: Put the cake in the fridge for about two hours.
