  • 300 g carrots
  • 3 medium eggs at room temperature
  • 160 ml corn or sunflower or mixed seeds oil
  • 160 g white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 lemon (only the zest)
  • ½ tsp cinnamon or cardamom powder
  • 440 g cream cheese
  • 50 ml milk
  • 80 g powdered sugar
  • orange and green food dye (optional)
  • chopped pistacchios (optional)


Instructions carrot sheet cake with cream cheese frosting

  • In a bowl of a rather powerful blender (the immersion blender may not be enough) blend the carrots with the eggs. Add vanilla extract, sugar, oil and blend again until everything becomes smooth.
  • Add salt, baking powder, flour, cinnamon or cardamom powder and lemon zest. Blend again to obtain a thick but rather liquid batter. Pour the mixture into a, lightly greased and dusted with some flour, 20×30 cm rectangular pan,
  • Bake in the preheated static oven at 170°C for 30 – 35 minutes. Check the baking using a toothpick after about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely before decorating with the frosting.
  • Prepare the glaze by mixing cream cheese with milk and powdered sugar. To avoid possible lumps, pass the cream through the fine sieve. Set aside two tablespoons of the cream for the decorations. Spread the rest of the icing evenly over the cake and decorate with chopped pistachios.
  • Divide the remaining prepared cream in two and add some orange and green food coloring. Decorate the cake using a piping bag and a small nozzle and serve.
