Ingredients

  • 150 g melted butter
  • 1 ? cup 200 g self raising flour
  • 1 cup 200g brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup grated carrots - approximately 2 medium carrots
  • ½ cup 50g walnuts
  • ¼ cup 40g sultanas
  • ¼ cup 30g currants
  • For the icing
  • 250 g of cream cheese - softened
  • 180 g of butter - softened
  • 220 g of icing sugar
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and line a 28 x 18cm slice tin with baking paper. Make sure you leave paper hanging over the sides of the tin to help you remove the slice once it’s cooked.
  • Roughly chop the walnuts and place them along with all of the other slice ingredients into a large bowl and mix with a large spoon until combined.
  • Pour the Carrot Cake Slice mixture into your prepared tin and bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until the top of the slice is golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer. Carefully remove the slice from the oven and allow it to cool completely in the tin.
  • To make the cream cheese icing, place the softened cream cheese and butter into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on a medium speed for 3 minutes until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the icing sugar and vanilla extract and mix on a low speed for 1 minute before increasing the speed to high and mix for a further 3 minutes until the mixture is well combined.
  • Use a butter knife to spread the icing over the top of the slice and place it into the fridge for 30 minutes to firm.
  • Carefully remove the slice from the tin (using the excess baking paper as ‘handles’) and cut the slice into pieces.
