Asha's Ginger Carrot Snacking Cake with Jaggery Frosting
Recipe by: Asha Loupy
Carrot cake, meet gingerbread. Chock full of carrots and flavored with jaggery, Makhir Ginger, cinnamon, Anamalai Nutmeg and Anamalai Mace, this cake is great for celebrations or making a ho hum day feel a little more special (no occasion required).
The cake's texture falls somewhere between a layer cake and a loaf cake with a moist, spongy crumb. And, don't forget the icing! Made using Stella Parks' Basic Cream Cheese Frosting technique, this frosting isn't cut with butter and uses heavy whipping cream instead, resulting in a bright, tangy cream-cheese forward frosting that isn't too sweet.
If you don't have powdered jaggery, dark or light brown sugar can work in its place — but, Madhur Jaggery truly transforms this cake into something magical!
