“A moist carrot cake with a lemon icing. Only almonds rather than walnuts as well and no spices. Is really delicious and is the standard birthday cake in our household.” - by Fiona
Original recipe yields 12 servings
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch square baking dish or 9 inch Bundt pan.
- In a large bowl, whip egg yolks and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in the almonds, carrots,1 lemon's juice and zest, flour and baking powder. In a separate bowl with a clean beater, whip egg whites with a pinch of salt until they can hold a peak. Fold egg whites into the carrot batter. Pour into the prepared cake pan.
- Bake for 50 minutes, or until a small knife inserted into the center comes out clean. For icing, mix the remaining lemon's juice with confectioners' sugar until it can be drizzled easily from a spoon. Pour over the cake while warm or cooled. If making in a Bundt pan, remove from the pan before glazing.

"Very delicate, delicious cake--very different from the more "hearty", spiced carrot cake we're all used to. I loved the lemon flavor and the light icing--perfect for serving at a tea or brunch. Mine..." See more came out a little dark on top, so you may want to cover with foil the last 20 minutes or so of baking. I'll be serving again for special occasions!"
"This cake was a little too lemony for me. I was looking for something closer to carrot cake. This, while good, did not taste anything like carrot cake. It is light and would be good to serve at a tea ..." See moreor luncheon."
"This came out out great, without a lot of effort. I used freshly squeezed orange juice instead of lemon. Half the juice of one orange went into the cake and the other half went into the glaze. I al..." See moreso only 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar in the glaze. This will make a great breakfast treat! "
