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

Reply

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

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??

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.

Is it ok to use white SR flour?

Reply
Katrina January 12, 2013 - 3:23 PM

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

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?

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 ?

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?
