Rest: 30 min

Cake dough

300 g sugar (50% organic roux, 50% white)
244 g neutral oil
4 eggs
250 g organic flour T45 or T55
16 g sodium bicarbonate
10 g cinnamon
4 g salt
2 tbsp. s. Bourbon vanilla extract
300 g grated carrots
100 g walnuts
65 g raisins (optional)

Cream cheese

225 g creamy cow’s milk fromage frais
140 g sugar (50% brown, 50% white)
80 g liquid cream
lemon peel (lime or yellow)


A few walnut kernels and lime or lemon zest.


Step 1:


  • Preheat oven to 180°C, fan oven.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and oil. To this emulsion, add the eggs one at a time, mixing vigorously.
  • In another bowl, mix the powders (flour, cinnamon, bicarbonate and salt) then gradually incorporate them into the preparation using a spatula.
  • Finally, add the vanilla extract, grated walnuts and carrots, then the raisins if you wish.
  • Pour the batter into a round mold (or two small ones for a pièce montée) and bake for 35 minutes. Check that the cake is cooked through with a knife tip, remove from the oven and leave to cool completely on a wire rack before cutting horizontally, in two equal parts in the thickness direction.

Step 2:


  • In a large bowl, combine the fromage frais with the sugars and liquid cream.
  • Beat vigorously with a whisk or food processor to whip the cream into a whipped cream.

Step 3:


  • Place the cream in a piping bag fitted with a round tip (or other shape of your choice).
  • Gently remove the top part of the cake (move and lay flat), top the slice with a layer of cream, then replace the top part.
  • Decorate the top of the cake with cream to taste. Sprinkle with walnut kernels and lemon zest. Enjoy and share without delay! (Shelf life: 2 to 3 days in a cool place)
