Carrot, almond and rye cake

Preparation Time 20 mins
Cooking Time 45 mins
Suitable for pre-cooking Yes
Wheat Free Yes
Sugar Free No
Egg Free No
Dairy Free Optional
Gluten Free Optional

Ingredients

For the cake
200 gr Salted butter
100 gr sugar (this is low; if you like things sweet, up the sugar to 150 gr, but remember there will be two layers of sweet topping. )
4 eggs whisked
150 gr ground almonds
75 gr rye flour
1 tsp baking powder
300 gr grated carrots
100 gr grated marzipan
200 gr sultanas

For the topping
100 gr cream cheese
250-300 gr icing sugar
2-4 drops almond essence or lemon

Melt butter and whisk together with sugar. Whisk in eggs. Measure ground almonds and flour with baking powder. Mix grated marzipan and sultanas into the dry mixture and then fold in the grated carrots. Mix thoroughly.

Turn into two 7 in square flat cake tins.

Bake for 45 minutes at 180o (not fan).

Prepare the topping but don’t put on the cakes until they are completely cold.

Beat icing sugar slowly into cream cheese until you get a spreading consistency. Add a couple of drops of almond essence. Too much will make a runny topping. You need enough topping to sandwich the cakes together and cover the top.

Use a fork to drag a pattern across the top.
