Carrot cake of course! With sweet notes of cinnamon, juicy orange and a sharp tang of cream cheese in the frosting. All these flavours come together to make a one of the tastiest cakes you'll ever have.

This recipe is so very simple and uses very little equipment. I prefer to use a processor to grate the carrots but if you want to grate them by hand it can give a coarser texture which some people prefer. Other than that you just need a deep cake tin, a bowl and a wooden spoon. Read on for how to make this deliciously popular cake.

Makes: 8-10 slices
