Carrot Cake
2 cups (260 grams) plain flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/4 cups (295 ml) canola or other vegetable oil
1 cup (200 grams) white sugar
1 cup (200 grams) lightly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3 cups (300 grams) grated peeled carrots
1 cup (100 grams) chopped walnuts
1/2 cup (65 grams) raisins
FROSTING
225 grams cream cheese, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups (140 grams) powdered sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) thick cream
1/2 cup (50 grams) chopped walnuts, for topping cake

MAKE BATTER
Heat the oven to 180deg.C. Grease two a cake pan I used a 12” round tin and line the bottom with baking paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, and the cinnamon until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk the oil, sugars and vanilla. Whisk in eggs, one at a time, until blended.
Switch to a large rubber spatula. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then add the dry ingredients in 3 parts, stirring gently until they disappear and the batter is smooth. Stir in the carrots, nuts and raisins.
BAKE CAKE
Bake until the top of the cake is springy when touched and when a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean; 35 to 45 minutes.
Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes then turn out onto cooling racks, peel off parchment paper and cool completely.
TO FINISH
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with a handheld mixer on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the powdered sugar, a 1/4 cup at a time until fluffy. Pour in cream and beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Chill covered until ready to frost cake.
When the cake is completely cool, frost the top of cake. Scatter nuts on top.
