Best Ever carrot cake icing recipe.

Little Boozle 2011

I haven't posted a recipe for yonks
but this icing is the best.

Oh, and if you feel the need to put it on cake,
here is the recipe for that too.

(It is a seriously easy and fast cake.
The longest part is the time it takes to grate the carrot)

Carrot cake icing:

90g cream cheese
60g butter, softened
2+ teaspoons grated lemon rind
1 and 1/2 cups sifted icing sugar

Mix first 3 together till smooth then gradually add icing sugar.
Eat with a spoon or put on a cake if you care to.

Carrot cake:

1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
1/2 teaspooon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup castor sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 and 1/2 cups grated carrots
+- 1/3 cup sultanas

Sift flour, baking powder, soda and spices into a bowl.
Add sugar, eggs and oil and mix well.
Stir in carrot (+- sultanas)
Spoon into paper lined loaf tin
Cook at 160 degrees Celius.
Recipe says 1 hour and 10 minutes but in a loaf tin in my oven it takes about 40 minutes till
the skewer comes out clean.
Cool on rack and ice.

Gotta love a good one bowl recipe.
