Carrot & Cardamom Cake with Cream Cheese Buttercream
Carrot cake is a classic, but Shane Smith’s twist on this baked treat is delicious and great for Afternoon Tea! His recipe is gluten free, which changes this cake from a lighter sponge to a moreish slice, and is flavoured with a pinch of cardamom which adds a lovely floral note. Each slice is finished off with tangy cream cheese frosting and you can decorate however you choose. Chopped nuts, grated carrot, edible flowers, the choice is yours. To make this delicious treat suitable for coeliacs, make sure to use a gluten free baking powder.
