Preparation

Cake

  1. With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Line two 20-cm (8-inch) springform pans with parchment paper. Do not butter the pans.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until frothy. Gradually add 250 ml (1 cup) of brown sugar and beat until the meringue forms stiff peaks. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, combine the egg yolks, oil, orange juice and the remaining brown sugar (180 ml / 3/4 cup) with a whisk. Gently stir in the dry ingredients. With a spatula, gently fold in the meringue followed by the carrots, walnuts and currants.
  5. Divide the batter among the pans. Bake for about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack. Run the blade of a knife around the cakes and unmould. 


Frosting

  1. In a bowl, cream the cheese with the butter with an electric mixer. At low speed, gradually beat in the icing sugar until the frosting is smooth and creamy.
  2. Spread the frosting over the top of the cakes and stack them on a platter. 



Note

A detail not to overlook: we specify not to butter the pan, otherwise the cake loses volume as it cools and becomes deformed as it shrinks in the pan.

Comments

  1. Est-ce que l'on peut utiliser le moule "bunt"

  2. I have never commented on a recipe before but I can definitely recommend this one. I made this for a party and everyone loved it. It was soft, moist, not too sweet and tasted great. A keeper for sure. Will definitely make again; the only change is that it was ready after about 45 mins of baking at 350F instead of 1 hr 15 mins.

  3. Le plus délicieux au monde, à essayer et à répéter!
