Carrot Cake

Did anyone happen to watch "Nigella Kitchen" last Thursday?

If so, I am happy to report back that the Venetian Carrot Cake...

tastes every bit as good as it looked. Especially with the marscapone cream!

More of a pudding than a cake really. But then who's to say you can't have pudding for afternoon tea. Recipe here if you fancy giving it a try. I didn't have any rum so substituted brandy which seems to work. Might have to try it again with rum though!

  1. It looks gorgeous and I love mascarpone so I can just drool. I don't bake much as I am the only one in our house that would eat it

  2. I didn't see it, but that looks absolutely scrummy. I'm going to have to make that VERY soon.

  3. I've missed most of this series - it's just on at the worng time for me. iPlayer is good but it's not the same!

    I am the only person in the world who hates carrot cake though, so I think I may gove it a miss; though the mascarpone cream - yum!

  6. I'm not allowed to watch Nigella so I missed this - funny how I'm still "allowed" to bake cakes though, so I will have to try this!

  15. I saw her making this. Yours looks lovely, although I'm wondering if you also had a midnight visit to the fridge where you proceeded to stuff the whole thing in your mouth as if you'd never eaten in your life? or is that just nigella :o)
