How to make carrot and chocolate cake
Wash the carrots and peel them with a potato peeler (1). Put them in the mixer and chop them, or finely grate them (2). Put the eggs with the sugar in a bowl and work them until the mixture is light and fluffy. Also add the vanilla essence, milk and seed oil and mix. Also add the sifted flour and baking powder (3), continuing to mix.
Finally, add the chopped carrots and the chocolate chips (4). Mix them well with the rest and pour the mixture into a buttered and floured mould of 22-24 cm in diameter (5). Bake in a preheated oven at 170 ° C for about 40 minutes. Once the cake is ready, let it cool before turning it out. Your carrot and chocolate cake is ready to be enjoyed, sprinkled with plenty of icing sugar (6).
You can enrich the mixture with the addition of 30 grams of unsweetened cocoa powder and replace the chocolate chips with chopped chocolate or, alternatively, use white chocolate instead of dark chocolate.
To make the cake more delicious, you can decorate it with cheese icing or cream cheese, as in the preparation of carrot cake, the tall and soft American cake. To make the icing, mix 500 grams of cream cheese, 300 grams of powdered sugar, 150 grams of softened butter and a little vanilla essence in a bowl. You can also use the cream cheese for the filling if you prefer.
Also try the carrot and hazelnut cake, very soft and fragrant, ideal for a delicious snack.
You can keep the carrot and chocolate cake for 2-3 days well covered or under a glass bell.
