Recipe of the best carrot cake i’ve ever made

the ingredients – for a 8p cake

For the cake itself : 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup sour milk (you can use milk + 1 tsp of lime)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • One slice of pineaple crushed (including water)

For the frosting : 

  • 1 package of Philadelphia cream cheese (I used the light one)
  • 1/4 cup soft butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla

the recipe

Bake the cake :

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour a circle cake pan.
  3. In a bowl, mix the sugar, oil, sour milk and eggs until it’s well mixed.
  4. Add to your mix the flour, the baking soda, the cinnamon and the salt. Mix well.
  5. Add to your mix the shredded carrots, the crushed raisins, the crushed walnuts, the shredded coconut and the crushed pineaple. Mix well.
  6. Pour the mix in the circle cake pan.
It should look like this 🙂


7. Bake at 180 degrees for 45-50 mn. When it’s cooked, a sharp knife should come clean from the center. So cook it until your knife is clean. I had to cook it for 55 mn.

Time for cooking it !

8. Wait until it’s completely cooled to add the frosting.

Prepare the frosting : 

  1. Mix all the ingredient in a bowl. Keep in the fridge.
  2. Spread a thick layer on your cake when cold
Yummy…. already good to try this 🙂

Here you go ! You just need to eat it now and enjoy it. Bon appétit !
