  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (60g) all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup loosely packed grated peeled carrots

Frosting
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup (80g) powdered sugar sifted
  • 2 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons (2oz) unsalted butter room temperature

Instructions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease your baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, allspice, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, vegetable oil, and egg until well combined. Stir in flour mixture and use a rubber spatula to fold in grated carrots. Transfer batter to prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Place cake (in pan) on a cooling rack, and cool completely before frosting, about 45 minutes.
