Cream Cheese Icing


  1. Beat the sugar, oil, and eggs together until fluffy.
  2. Add milk, salt, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda, and baking powder and mix through.
  3. Then continue to add the flour, and mix well then lastly add the nuts, coconut, and carrots and mix well to ensure everything beautifully incorporated.
  4. Place in a well-greased baking tin
  5. Bake at 160C / 320F for 35 minutes


  1. Cream butter and cheese until ultra fluffy
  2. Add vanilla and icing sugar and mix well
  3. Once the cake is cooled, you can ice it.

Baking soda helps the cake to rise. Salt, cinnamon, and vanilla extract make the cake taste amazing. The oil keeps the cake nice and moist — any neutral-flavored oil will work. (Melted coconut oil works, too, but there will be a light coconut flavor in the baked cake.)
