DIRECTIONS

  • Heat your oven to 150°C.
  • Sift the flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and mix together with the sugar.
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs, oil and zests together, then add the carrots and walnuts.
  • Fold into the flour mixture.
  • Pour into a greased and lined tin and bake for 1 hour 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out cleanly. Once cooked, turn out and let cool.
  • Meanwhile, beat together the icing sugar and butter until light and fluffy, then fold in the cream cheese. Put in the fridge until stiffened.
  • Once the cake is cool, spread the topping over and serve.
