New carrot cake. Step by step recipe
- First you need to dry the nuts until a pleasant nutty smell appears, then mix them with oil and add a pinch of salt, set aside.
- Making the dough: mix the liquid part (eggs, butter, juice). Mix the dry part (flour, baking powder, sugar, orange zest). Combine the liquid and dry mixes, add carrots to them, which must be grated beforehand. Stir everything.
- In the oven preheated to a temperature of 180 degrees, we send the first cake, bake for about 20-25 minutes. Then, according to the same scheme, two more cakes. As a result, you should get 3 identical cakes. Leave them to cool on a wire rack.
- For cheese cream, beat the butter at room temperature until smooth, add Mascarpone, Philadelphia cheese and icing sugar. Beat until all lumps are dissolved.
- We collect a cake, we coat each cake with cream, not regretting, top the whole cake with cream. Garnish with nuts and orange slices.
In order for the cream to be airy and tender, Mascarpone and Philadelphia must be at room temperature. The main thing is not to dry the cakes, they should be slightly moist, then the cake will be very juicy and soft. And be sure to try the potato-mushroom cake and the Napoleon snack with cream of potatoes and mushrooms.
