This Brazilian popular cake is soft and moist, and with a really lovely light orange color. It’s a really unique flavor, but not weird at all. It’s just sweet, soft and delicious.
What I love about this Brazilian carrot cake, and as well as this Chocolate Cake, is that they are very simple to make. They are made in a blender and take less than 15 minutes to put together. Most often you just need to put your ingredients in the blender, turn it on, empty into a baking tin, and bake. Simple! No electric or hand mixer, no KitchenAid, just blend it up. And no need to cook the carrots.
Brazilian carrot cake is very different from the Canadian/American version. There are no carrot chunks in it, it is orange, no cream cheese frosting, this sunny puff of a cake is instead hugged with this shiny Chocolate icing Fast2eat Recipe (AKA Brigadeiro), instead of creamy tang. It’s a comforting, not-too-sweet any-day cake, and is perfect to serve with coffee or tea.
