An unrivaled carrot velvet cake. Step by step recipe
- The cream recipe uses cream cheese: it must be prepared in advance. Put a colander in a saucepan, cover with a natural cloth or cheesecloth, add kefir and sour cream there, mix and leave in the refrigerator overnight. Thus, on gauze or cloth, you will have cream cheese.
- Prepare the walnuts. First you need to fry them in a pan, then salt, add melted butter, mix everything and put in the freezer.
- Nuts will stand in the freezer while the dough is being prepared.
- We need to remove the zest from the orange: it needs to be washed and grated on a fine grater. Leave the zest in a separate bowl: we will add it to the dough.
- Prepare the carrots: wash, peel and grind in a blender (you can grate on a fine grater). Leave the chopped carrots in a separate bowl: we will add it to the dough.
- We proceed to the preparation of the test. With the help of a mixer, a kitchen machine or a blender, we begin to beat the eggs, add sugar, beat until fluffy and pour the vegetable oil.
- Continuing to beat the dough, we change the nozzle, and gradually pour in flour, baking powder, a pinch of cinnamon and orange zest.
- Also, gently add chopped carrots to the whipped dough. Mix all ingredients thoroughly with a spatula or spoon.
- We take walnuts from the freezer, pour them on the board and chop them with a knife. Add chopped walnuts to the dough and mix well. You can leave some whole nuts to decorate the cake.
- From the resulting test we will make three cakes. For this, the dough needs to be divided into three equal parts.
- We turn to baking cakes. We take a round shape with a diameter of 22 centimeters, put it on parchment, put the first part of the dough and bake at a temperature of 170-180 degrees, about twenty-five minutes.
- In the same way, bake two more parts of the dough.
- The readiness of the cake can be checked with a wooden stick or toothpick: if it does not have raw dough, then the cake has already been baked.
- When all three cakes are ready, you need to give them time to cool. The cakes are very soft and brittle: they need to be carefully wrapped in cling film (each cake is wrapped individually) and sent to the refrigerator for several hours.
- We proceed to the preparation of the cream. Using a mixer, beat the butter (the butter should be soft, so leave it first at room temperature or melt a little with the microwave), gradually add the powdered sugar, and then a little cream cheese (or it is also called cream cheese). Mix everything until smooth: the cream is ready.
- We take cakes from the refrigerator and, using a knife, remove very thin small tops: we will use them for crumbs. To make crumbs from the tops, you can use a knife or crumble with your hands.
- We proceed to the collection of cake. Cakes should be smeared with cream, and also grease the top and sides of the cake with cream.
- Sprinkle the sides of the cake and a little top with crumbs from the cakes, and carefully lay the walnuts in the center of the cake.
- The cake should be sent to the refrigerator for a couple of hours: brew.
