I don’t suggest freezing this recipe as I think it may dry it out too much if you do.

Is it more of a cake slice rather than a firm biscuit-like slice?

Katrina January 10, 2013 - 3:33 PM

Yes more cakey than biscuity, but not dense like a cake.

Carla Preston January 10, 2013 - 3:18 PM

1/4 cup sultanas?

Katrina January 10, 2013 - 3:27 PM

Yes, you can add more if you’d like.

Kim Gardner January 10, 2013 - 3:26 PM

What is the amount of sugar you beat with the butter?? It seems to be missing from the Ingredients list….or am I having one of THOSE days??

Katrina January 10, 2013 - 3:35 PM

No Kim, it appears I am having one of those days, I have added it in thank you for pointing that out. ¼ cup brown sugar.

Kim Gardner January 10, 2013 - 3:36 PM

Fantastic Thanks. I am having one of those days so you might have caught it!!

Carley January 10, 2013 - 3:26 PM

Are you sure 14 cups of sultanas or 1/4 cup

Katrina January 10, 2013 - 3:33 PM

Ooh, woops sorry, yes ¼ cup all fixed, thank you.

Is it ok to use white SR flour?

Katrina January 12, 2013 - 3:23 PM

You could Jenny, not sure how different it may taste.

Georgie Pixie Wilson January 11, 2013 - 12:44 PM

what size pan do you recommend?

Katrina January 12, 2013 - 3:22 PM

I used a slice pan.

Kylie Chivers January 14, 2013 - 1:36 PM

Mmmmm, looks yummy. Definitely trying this. Thanks Katrina for sharing 🙂

Natalie Cotton February 10, 2013 - 8:25 PM

I made this tonight and it’s delicious! Definitely a keeper. Only tip – when making the icing don’t do what I did and add all the orange juice all at once. Combine all the ingredients and then add enough orange juice to make it firm. Oh, and make double quantity – the first lot won’t last very long!!!!!

How do you package for school lunches? Would the icing just stick to & come off on cling wrap or a container lid?

Renee April 28, 2014 - 9:35 PM

I made this tonight yummy but the consistency was really unusual when I was placing it in pan – like it was really dry and sticky ? Is this how it should be ?

Joanne May 3, 2014 - 2:26 PM

I really want to make this cake! Looks delish! Is it really only 1/4 cup of carrots? Doesnt seem like much at all.

Hi Kat, Just wondering with this one, as I don’t bake a whole lot. Do you freeze this slice with the icing on?

Katrina - The Organised Housewife January 20, 2016 - 8:28 PM

Hi Kaylene, absolutely, cake and icing, this icing is perfect to freeze, hope you enjoy it 🙂
