Ingredients

    2 cups self-raising flour
    1 teaspoon mixed spice
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1 cup firmly packed Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    2 cups grated carrot 
    1 cup chopped walnuts
    1 cup vegetable oil
    3 eggs, lightly beaten

    CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
    125g cream cheese, softened
    2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
    1 1/2 cups Chelsea Icing Sugar
    Walnuts, to decorate

Method

    Step 1: Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Grease a 6cm-deep, 19cm square cake pan. Line base and sides with baking paper.
    Step 2: Sift flour, spice and cinnamon into a bowl. Add sugar, carrot, chopped walnuts, oil and eggs. Stir to combine. Spread into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer inserted into centre comes out clean (cover loosely with foil if over-browning). Stand in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack to cool.
    Step 3: Make frosting: Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and lemon rind until smooth. Gradually beat in sugar until smooth. Spread frosting over cake. Decorate with walnuts. Serve.
