Sticky Carrot Ginger and Macadamia Cake

It rained all weekend so I spent most of Sunday in the kitchen. I saw these sweet Dutch carrots at the Eveleigh Farmers Markets a few weeks back and I've been dying to buy some. I bought some at my local fruit market and decided to try this carrot cake recipe. This is my version of Belinda Jeffrey's Sticky Pineapple, Carrot, Ginger and Macadamia Cake.  I don't own any of Belinda's Cookbooks but I've given 'Mix and Bake' to 2 of my girlfriends.The recipe can be found here on Lemonpi's blog.

Warning - this cake took forever to put together. I started the cake the night before I baked it, weighing out and preparing as much as I could. I started again at 7.30 in the morning and it took almost 8 hours to prepare, bake, cool, decorate, download and prepare the images ready for posting. For those of you who ask why I don't post recipes - because there aren't enough hours in the day!

Now I'm not a huge fan of carrot cakes as I usually find them too oily but Belinda Jeffrey has substituted some of the oil with buttermilk. I haven't tasted the finished product yet but the batter was very delicious as was the sticky topping and the sour cream filling.

I took the cake into work today and it was all gone by lunchtime - a very good sign. I'll let you know what I think about the cake when I finally get to taste my slice.

The finished product.

Bye for now,
