  • Preheat oven to 150°C (302°F). Take a cake pan and grease it with oil & put non-stick baking sheet.
  • In a large bowl sift the flour and mix baking soda & cinnamon.
  • In a separate large saucepan now mix milk, olive oil, golden syrup, vanilla extract, brown sugar & eggs, whisk them together properly and pour this mix into the bowl with sifted flour. Gently stir and mix all together to form an even batter. Now add grated carrots and stir & mix well.
  • Pour this carrot batter into the baking pan and bake for about 1 hour. When you feel its baked, check with inserting knife or fork into the baked cake, if the batter does not stick to it then its baked well from inside too. Now take out of oven and keep on the side for 10 minutes, after that you can put on the wire rack and cool it to room temperature.
  • Now take a pan and add icing sugar, softened cream cheese & vanilla essence and mix well gently. Now spread this icing layer on top of the cake.
