Fluted Carrot-Orange Cake : TWD

This week's bake at Tuesdays With Dorie (TWD) is Fluted Carrot-Tangerine Cake. It is an inch high, light and spongy carrot cake with the fragrance and flavours from ginger and citrus. 



I have used orange instead of tangerine. And the pie pan I used has straight sides instead of fluted. As usual, I have reduced the amount of sugar, using only a scant half cup, and it works for me. I can already taste the sweetness, and it tastes sweeter on the next day too. I cannot imagine how sweet it is with the full amount, a whole cup of it for a one-inch cake. There's grated carrots, orange zest and juice, and grated fresh ginger in the batter.


 It certainly smells lovely when the cake is baking in the oven!



I thought that this cake is nice. Light, soft and moist with a fragrant citrusy taste. Goes well with a cup of warm tea.

  2. It is sweet with the full amount of sugar but it means you only need a little sliver - so it lasts longer :)

  6. I never thought to reduce the sugar, but you're right, it would have tasted just as good (and be healthier)! I'll have to try that next time. Your cake looks great!

  8. Your cake looks lovely Joyce, and it doesn't look as though reducing the sugar affected the texture - it still looks moist and delicious!

  10. Since I used lemon zest and lemon juice, my cake did not taste overly sweet but it is good to know that the sugar can be reduced without issue!
