Try this incredibly moist carrot cake which is packed full of yummy flavours.

You will need:

2 large carrots, peeled and grated

3 large eggs

200g light brown sugar

250ml oil

240g self-rising flour

5 ml ground cinnamon

5 ml ground nutmeg

pinch salt

100 g SPAR pecan nuts, chopped (keep a few aside for decoration before chopping)

30 g seedless raisins

For the topping

500ml sifted icing sugar

125g smooth plain cottage cheese


Preheat oven to 160º C. Grease a 20cm cake tin or medium loaf pan.  Beat eggs, sugar and oil together in a mixing bowl, for 2 minutes.  Gently add in all the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Pour mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes.  Once cake has cooled slightly, turn out onto a cake cooling rack.  Ice the cooled cake with the topping made by mixing both ingredients together. Decorate with the reserved pecan nuts.
