Moist Carrot Cake II 红萝卜蛋糕 II

I think I hit all the criteria of a good cake for this Moist Carrot Cake. The cake was moist and soft, tall with raisins evenly distributed, and the correct balance of sweetness and tang. I absolutely loved this moist carrot cake. In fact, the cake tasted better on the next day!

If there is any complaints, it would be the cooking time which took a whole 1.5 hours due to the thickness of the cake. Alternatively, you could divide batter into three equal portions and bake together for faster baking time. 

I did not add any nuts into the cake but I prefer the nuts toasted and sprinkled on top for that extra fragrant and crunch. In this bake, I used almond instead of walnut as it is the only nut I managed to get hold of. Yet, this moist carrot cake turned out superb. 

In order to get a soft, tender and moist carrot cake, it is essential to be very gentle when you are incorporating the flour. Do it gently in a few instalment so that it is well incorporated and not lumpy. Do not overmix. Also, oil is used instead of butter. 

The cream cheese that I used in this recipe is just enough to frost 3 layers of the cake. I did not frost the sides as I want it to look rustic. If you are frosting the sides too, please double the cream cheese recipe.
