    Instructions
     

    Directions

      Cake Base

      • Preheat the oven to 170°c (fan-forced).
      • Line a square cake tin (22cm x 22cm) with baking paper.
      • Vigorously whisk the eggs, brown sugar, and golden syrup together for 5 minutes.
      • Add the olive oil, vanilla, bicarb soda, cinnamon, walnuts, carrots, AdVital Powder and flour. Mix them together gently until they form a smooth mixture.
      • Place the mixture into the previously prepared cake tin and bake it for 30–40 minutes (until a skewer speared through the middle comes out clean).
      • Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes in the tin, then remove it and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack.

      Cream Cheese Frosting

      • Use electric beaters to mix the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla, and lemon juice in a bowl until they form a smooth, well-combined mixture.
      • Whisk the AdVital Powder into the mixture.
      • Whisk the fortified cream into the cream cheese mixture together until they combine.
      • Spread the cream cheese frosting over the cake.
      • Portion the cake into pieces as required and serve it.
