As I mentioned before, I came across this recipe and it changed my life LOL. It was an old photocopy my mom had for years and when I saw it I just couldn’t help it, I had to scan that ma make it at home.

It’s pretty easy to make and it tastes so good! It’s soft and fluffy. It’s good for any time of the day, breakfast, dessert, tea time… Yummm!


Carrot cake:

  • ½ cup of vegetable oil.
  • 4 eggs.
  • 3 medium carrots {grated}
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 2 ½ cups of flour
  • 1 tbsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon.

Vanilla Glaze

  • 4 oz {120 gm.} cup cream cheese at room temperature
  • ½ cup of Powder Sugar
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract.
  • 3-4 tbsp of whole milk
  • 1/8 tsp of salt {pinch}


Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4/fan 160C.

Separate the egg whites from the yolk.

Mix in a blender the oil, sugar, carrot and the yolks. When it’s done, beat the egg whites in a big bowl {with a whisk or a stand mixer} until it forms hard peaks. Without stopping pour the carrot mixture in and mix well.

Add the flower with the baking powder and cinnamon and mix for about 2 minutes. It’s ready.

Now pour the batter evenly for 12 cupcakes that have already been lined with cupcakes liners and bake for 30-40 minutes, until it feels firm and springy when you press it in the center. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, and carefully take them out of the cupcake tin and place them on a wired rack. Wait until they are completely cool to add the frosting or it will melt away.

Vanilla Glaze

With a stand mixer and a whisk attachment, whip the cream cheese over medium-high speed for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Scrap the bowl at least one time during those 5 minutes. Add the powdered sugar little by little on slow speed until combine and add the vanilla and milk scraping the bowl once. Whip it again at low-medium speed for 2 more minutes. The mixture should smooth. Add more milk if it’s too thick.

Decorate as you like, serve and enjoy!
