Carrot cake with hazelnuts

Carrot cake with hazelnuts and dates cream – one of the best cakes I’ve ever eaten. Carrot cake is a very fast and simple cake to make, has a damp texture thanks to the carrot, it is lightly crunchy from the hazelnuts that I put both in the composition of the counter and as a decor over the cream with a special fragrance thanks to the orange peel husk, the vanilla essence, and the spice mix used.

It is a tasty, perfect cake for any time you want to satisfy your sweet need. The classic recipe calls for nutmeg, but we wanted to give it a little personality, so in exchange for the walnut kernel we used Orlando’s raw hazelnuts.
The dates cream is also special and we decided on it because we did not want to use any refined sugar in the recipe, but we mixed a lot on the sweetness of the dates, which have a very high amount of natural sugars and that made the cake be pretty sweet.

Carrot cake is that cake that does not require a special occasion to be done and we are sure it will delight your taste buds. It’s worth trying it!
